Gold Coast

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 enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Surfers Paradise Beach and Coolangatta Beach. Take a break from the city and head to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary and Burleigh Heads Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Gold Coast: Cape Byron Lighthouse (in Byron Bay), Brisbane (Queensland Art Gallery, Gallery of Modern Art, & more) and Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre (in Murwillumbah). Spend the 1st (Fri) exploring the fascinating underwater world at Sea World Theme Park. And it doesn't end there: browse the different shops at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, explore the world behind art at Watling Fine Art Galleries & Burleigh Framing, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, and find something for the whole family at Dreamworld.
