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.
Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre and Queensland Museum & Sciencentre are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step out of the city life by going to Surfers Paradise Beach and Coolangatta Beach. Explore Gold Coast's surroundings by going to Byron Bay (Jules Hunt Studio Gallery & Cape Byron Lighthouse) and Brisbane (Museum of Brisbane, Opal Museum, & more). Spend the 20th (Mon) 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, tour the pleasant surroundings at Kirra Beach, view the masterpieces at Anthea Polson Art, and enjoy the sand and surf at Burleigh Heads Beach.

To see traveler tips, maps, photos, and more tourist information, go to the Gold Coast road trip app .

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major airports are Brisbane International Airport and Gold Coast Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 27°C, and evening lows to 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
