Step out of Gold Coast with an excursion to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary in Brisbane--about 1h 30 min away. Spend the 18th (Sat) exploring the fascinating underwater world at Sea World Theme Park. Next up on the itinerary: get in on the family fun at Warner Bros. Movie World, head outdoors with Pelican Feeding, take in panoramic vistas at SkyPoint Observation Deck, and enjoy the sand and surf at Surfers Paradise Beach.
