Gold Coast

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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Burleigh Head National Park and Kirra Beach. Get some cultural insight at Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre and Bexhill Open Air Cathedral. Change things up with these side-trips from Gold Coast: Byron Bay (Jules Hunt Studio Gallery, Belongil Beach, & more), Lennox Head Beach (in Lennox Head) and Tropical Fruit World (in Duranbah). Spend the 3rd (Sun) exploring nature at Natural Bridge. And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sea views from Captain Cook Memorial and Lighthouse, learn about winemaking at Bunjurgen Estate Vineyard, identify plant and animal life at David Fleay Wildlife Park, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Kurrawa Beach.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are Brisbane International Airport and Gold Coast Airport. In January in Gold Coast, expect temperatures between 33°C during the day and 24°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
