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.
Explore hidden gems such as Federation Walk Coastal Reserve and Burleigh Head National Park. Get outdoors at Pat Morton Lookout and Tugun Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Gold Coast: Watersports Guru (in Kingscliff), Big Prawn (in Ballina) and Byron Bay (Wategos Beach & Stand-Up Paddleboarding). There's more to do: get interesting insight from Tours and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Tamborine Mountain.

To find where to stay, more things to do, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Gold Coast road trip planner.

If you are flying in from New Zealand, the closest major airports are Brisbane International Airport and Gold Coast Airport. Expect a daytime high around 29°C in October, and nighttime lows around 18°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
