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.
Step out of the city life by going to Burleigh Head National Park and Dicky Beach. Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre and Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Surfers Paradise will appeal to museum buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Gold Coast: Fingal Head Lighthouse (in Fingal Head), Glow Worm Caves (in North Tamborine) and Cape Byron Lighthouse (in Byron Bay). The adventure continues: kick back and relax at Surfer's Paradise Beach, browse the different shops at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, tour the pleasant surroundings at Kirra Beach, and find something for the whole family at Warner Bros. Movie World.

If you are flying in from New Zealand, the closest major airports are Brisbane International Airport and Gold Coast Airport. In October, daytime highs in Gold Coast are 29°C, while nighttime lows are 18°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
