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.
Get out of town with these interesting Gold Coast side-trips: Byron Bay (Cape Byron Lighthouse & Cape Byron Walking Track) and Ted's Corner (in Capalaba). There's much more to do: find something for the whole family at Sea World Theme Park, browse the different shops at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, stroll through Coolangatta Beach, and kick back and relax at Burleigh Heads Beach.
