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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Sea World Theme Park and Warner Bros. Movie World. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Gold Coast: Cape Byron Walking Track (in Byron Bay), Moffat Beach (in Caloundra) and Glow Worm Caves (in North Tamborine). There's much more to do: stroll through Surfer's Paradise Beach, kick back and relax at Coolangatta Beach, take a memorable drive along Captain Cook Highway, and cool off at The Rockpools.
