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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Queensland Museum & Sciencentre and Gallery of Modern Art. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Surfers Paradise Beach and Burleigh Head National Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Gold Coast: Brisbane (Opal Museum, Mount Coot-tha Lookout, & more), Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre (in Murwillumbah) and Byron Bay (Thomgallery & Cape Byron Lighthouse). Spend the 8th (Mon) exploring the fascinating underwater world at Sea World Theme Park. There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Burleigh Heads Beach, enjoy breathtaking views from SkyPoint Observation Deck, head outdoors with Pelican Feeding, and view the masterpieces at Anthea Polson Art.

To see where to stay, photos, maps, and other tourist information, read our Gold Coast road trip planning site .

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airports are Brisbane International Airport and Gold Coast Airport. Expect a daytime high around 24°C in July, and nighttime lows around 11°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 8th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
