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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Pacific Fair Shopping Centre and Surfers Paradise Beach. You'll get in some beach time at Cape Byron Lighthouse and Burleigh Heads Beach. Explore Gold Coast's surroundings by going to Byron Bay (Lone Goat Gallery, Dolphin & Whale Watching, & more), Brisbane (Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary & Mount Coot-tha Lookout) and Caloundra (Moffat Beach & Dicky Beach). There's lots more to do: take in the exciting artwork at Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre, take in panoramic vistas at SkyPoint Observation Deck, get in on the family fun at Infinity Attraction, and browse the different shops at Star Court Arcade.
