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.
Shop till you drop at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre and Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre. Relax by the water at Surfers Paradise Beach and Burleigh Heads Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Cape Byron Lighthouse (in Byron Bay) and Brisbane (Gallery of Modern Art, Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, & more). Spend the 10th (Wed) exploring the fascinating underwater world at Sea World Theme Park. The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Surfers Paradise.
