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.
Get in touch with nature at Burleigh Head National Park and Kirra Beach. Explore hidden gems such as Stand-Up Paddleboarding and Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre. Explore Gold Coast's surroundings by going to Lennox Head Beach (in Lennox Head), Byron Bay (Kayaking & Canoeing, Belongil Beach, & more) and Brisbane (Relove Oxley, Queensland Museum & Sciencentre, & more). Spend the 24th (Mon) exploring nature at Natural Bridge. Spend the 27th (Thu) exploring nature at Springbrook National Park. There's much more to do: buy something for everyone on your list at Robina Town Shopping Centre, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Tamborine Mountain, take a memorable tour with Tours, and kick back and relax at Greenmount Beach.
