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.
Cape Byron Lighthouse and New Govardhana Australia will appeal to history buffs. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Kirra Beach and Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre. Get out of town with these interesting Gold Coast side-trips: Tweed Regional Museum - Murwillumbah (in Murwillumbah), Belongil Beach (in Byron Bay) and Fingal Head Lighthouse (in Fingal Head). There's lots more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Bexhill Open Air Cathedral, kick back and relax at Kurrawa Beach, stroll through Surfer's Paradise Beach, and identify plant and animal life at David Fleay Wildlife Park.
