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.
Visit Burleigh Head National Park and Coolangatta Beach for some beach relaxation. Head to Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre and Robina Town Shopping Centrefor some retail therapy. Step out of Gold Coast to go to Byron Bay and see Cape Byron Lighthouse, which is approximately 1h 30 min away. There's still lots to do: stroll through Surfer's Paradise Beach, get in on the family fun at Sea World Theme Park, kick back and relax at Burleigh Heads Beach, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Carrara Markets.

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airports are Brisbane International Airport and Gold Coast Airport. Expect a daytime high around 25°C in August, and nighttime lows around 11°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 7th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
