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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre and Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Surfers Paradise. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Surfers Paradise Beach and Burleigh Head National Park. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Gold Coast: Broken Head Nature Reserve (in Broken Head), Whian Whian State Conservation Area (in Whian Whian) and Cape Byron Lighthouse (in Byron Bay). Spend the 20th (Mon) exploring the fascinating underwater world at Sea World Theme Park. And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Burleigh Heads Beach, find something for the whole family at Infinity Attraction, and identify plant and animal life at David Fleay Wildlife Park.
