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.
Appreciate the collections at Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre and Templin Historical Village. Take a break from the city and head to Stand-Up Paddleboarding and Kirra Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Gold Coast side-trips: You and Bamboo (in Bogangar), Point Stephens Lighthouse (in Fingal Bay) and Fingal Head (Fingal Head Lighthouse & Cook Island Aquatic Reserve). Pack the 3rd (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Sea World Theme Park. Next up on the itinerary: identify plant and animal life at Burleigh Head National Park, kick back and relax at Tugun Beach, pause for some serene contemplation at Bexhill Open Air Cathedral, and steep yourself in history at Tweed Regional Museum - Murwillumbah.

Seventeen Seventy, also written as 1770, is a town and locality in Gladstone Region, Queensland, Australia, built on the site of the second landing by James Cook and the crew of HM Bark Endeavour in May 1770 (Cook's first landing in what is now the state of Queensland). Take a break from the city and head to Lady Musgrave Island and Deepwater National Park. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Joseph Banks Regional Park and Kent Barton Art Gallery. Venture out of the city with trips to Lake Awoonga (in Benaraby) and Canoe Point Beach and Parklands (in Tannum Sands). Spend the 30th (Sun) exploring nature at Butterfly Walk. There's still lots to do: admire all the interesting features of Paperbark Forest Walk, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at 1770 Distillery, identify plant and animal life at Horizons Kangaroo Sanctuary, and appreciate the history behind Lieutenant James Cook Monument Cairn.
