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.
Visiting Surfer's Paradise Beach and Coolangatta Beach will get you outdoors. We've included these beaches for you: Burleigh Heads Beach and Burleigh Head National Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Gold Coast: Brisbane (Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary & South Bank Parklands). There's lots more to do: get in on the family fun at Sea World Theme Park, take in panoramic vistas at SkyPoint Observation Deck, and meet the residents at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary.

To find other places to visit, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our Gold Coast itinerary planner.

In January, plan for daily highs up to 33°C, and evening lows to 24°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 19th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
