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.
Attractions like Sea World Theme Park and Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary make great kid-friendly stops. There's much more to do: find something for the whole family at Warner Bros. Movie World, cool off at Dreamworld, take some stellar pictures from Freeman's Organic Farm, and don't miss a visit to Rotary Carousel Broadbeach.

For where to stay, maps, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read Gold Coast trip maker site .
