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.
Step out of the city life by going to Surfer's Paradise Beach and Coolangatta Beach. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre and Marina Mirage. Venture out of the city with trips to Brisbane (Gallery of Modern Art, Queensland Museum & Sciencentre, & more). Pack the 15th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Sea World Theme Park. There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Burleigh Heads Beach, browse the different shops at Robina Town Shopping Centre, stop by Miami Marketta, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary.
