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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Stand-Up Paddleboarding and Kirra Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Gold Coast: Byron Bay (Kayaking & Canoeing, The Byron Bay Book Exchange, & more). Spend the 14th (Sun) exploring nature at Natural Bridge. And it doesn't end there: find something for the whole family at Sea World Theme Park, putt your heart out at Putt Putt Mermaid Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, and kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks.

To find ratings, maps, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our Gold Coast trip planner .

If you are flying in from Spain, the closest major airports are Brisbane International Airport and Gold Coast Airport. In October, daytime highs in Gold Coast are 29°C, while nighttime lows are 18°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 19th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
