Gold Coast ©
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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Cape Byron Lighthouse (in Byron Bay) and Brisbane (Channel Seven Wheel of Brisbane, South Bank Parklands, & more). The adventure continues: meet the residents at Sea World Theme Park, kick back and relax at Burleigh Heads Beach, stroll through Surfers Paradise Beach, and browse the different shops at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre.

To find more things to do, reviews, photos, and more tourist information, go to the Gold Coast online travel planner .

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major airports are Brisbane International Airport and Gold Coast Airport. Expect a daytime high around 25°C in August, and nighttime lows around 11°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
