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 explore the less-touristy side of things at Bexhill Open Air Cathedral and Stand-Up Paddleboarding. Visiting Burleigh Head National Park and Natural Bridge will get you outdoors. Venture out of the city with trips to Fingal Head Lighthouse (in Fingal Head), Point Stephens Lighthouse (in Fingal Bay) and Marian Valley - Shrine of Our Lady Help of Christians (in Canungra). Spend the 23rd (Sun) exploring nature at Springbrook National Park. There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at New Govardhana Australia, tour the pleasant surroundings at Lennox Head Beach, enjoy the sea views from Cape Byron Lighthouse, and don't miss a visit to St.Andrew's Anglican Church.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Gold Coast trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

In December, plan for daily highs up to 32°C, and evening lows to 22°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
