Gold Coast

Gold Coast ©
A city of towering skyscrapers, sandy beaches, and tree-lined streets, Gold Coast has an unpretentious air complemented by a citywide focus on sports and the arts.
Relax by the water at Surfers Paradise Beach and Moffat Beach. Cape Byron Lighthouse and Fingal Head Lighthouse will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with a short trip to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary in Brisbane (about 1h 30 min away). Spend the 2nd (Thu) exploring the fascinating underwater world at Sea World Theme Park. There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Burleigh Heads Beach, stroll through Coolangatta Beach, find something for the whole family at Infinity Attraction, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary.

In May, plan for daily highs up to 27°C, and evening lows to 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
