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 Burleigh Heads Beach. Get a sense of the local culture at Cape Byron Lighthouse and Queensland Museum & Sciencentre. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Gold Coast: Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre (in Murwillumbah), Brisbane (Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, Opal Museum, & more) and Thomgallery (in Byron Bay). Spend the 25th (Sun) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's lots more to do: browse the different shops at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, kick back and relax at Coolangatta Beach, stroll through Dicky Beach, and revel in the low prices at Harbour Town Outlet Shopping Centre.

To find reviews, ratings, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Gold Coast trip site .
