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 off the beaten path and head to Captain Cook Memorial and Lighthouse and Lennox Head Beach. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre and Bexhill Open Air Cathedral. Venture out of the city with trips to Fingal Head Lighthouse (in Fingal Head), New Govardhana Australia (in Eungella) and Byron Bay (Stand-Up Paddleboarding, Jules Hunt Studio Gallery, & more). Spend the 15th (Fri) exploring nature at Natural Bridge. And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Kirra Beach, buy something for everyone on your list at Marina Mirage, tour the pleasant surroundings at Greenmount Beach, and explore the striking landscape of Burleigh Head National Park.

To see maps and more tourist information, you can read our Gold Coast road trip planning website .
