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.
Take a break from the city and head to Surfer's Paradise Beach and Burleigh Heads Beach. We've included these beaches for you: Coolangatta Beach and Kirra Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Gold Coast side-trips: Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre (in Murwillumbah), Brisbane (Catholic Old St. Stephen's Church (chapel), Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, & more) and Cape Byron Lighthouse (in Byron Bay). And it doesn't end there: buy something for everyone on your list at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, see the interesting displays at Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Surfers Paradise, find something for the whole family at Warner Bros. Movie World, and try out the rides at Sea World Theme Park.

To find maps, more things to do, ratings, and tourist information, use the Gold Coast road trip tool .

If you are flying in from New Zealand, the closest major airports are Brisbane International Airport and Gold Coast Airport. September in Gold Coast sees daily highs of 27°C and lows of 15°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
