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.
Escape the urban bustle at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary and Burleigh Heads Beach. You'll get in some beach time at Surfers Paradise Beach and Norries Head. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Gold Coast: Mount Coot-tha Lookout (in Brisbane), Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre (in Murwillumbah) and Moffat Beach (in Caloundra). Spend the 4th (Tue) exploring the fascinating underwater world at Sea World Theme Park. Spend the 3rd (Mon) exploring nature at Les Rodgers Memorial Park. And it doesn't end there: buy something for everyone on your list at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, get some fabulous bargains at Harbour Town Outlet Shopping Centre, stop by Miami Marketta, and play a few rounds at Surfers Paradise Golf Club.

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airports are Brisbane International Airport and Gold Coast Airport. Expect a daytime high around 27°C in May, and nighttime lows around 15°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 7th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
