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.
Escape the urban bustle at Stand-Up Paddleboarding and Kurrawa Beach. Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre and St Vincent's Catholic Church are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with a short trip to Belongil Beach in Byron Bay (about 1h 25 min away). Spend the 16th (Tue) exploring nature at Natural Bridge. There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Kirra Beach, stroll through Burleigh Head National Park, and pause for some photo ops at Captain Cook Memorial and Lighthouse.

Planning Gold Coast trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

Singapore, Singapore to Gold Coast is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train.

Queensland’s biggest town and state capital, Brisbane has an attractive, manicured image based around its riverside aesthetic as well as the contrast between its high-rise center and extensive urban greenery.

Let the collections at Queensland Art Gallery and Queensland Museum & Sciencentre capture your imagination. Step out of Brisbane to go to Wacol and see Wolston Farmhouse, which is approximately 36 minutes away. There's lots more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. John's Anglican Cathedral, and kick back and relax at Moffat Beach.
