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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre and Marina Mirage. Take a break from the city and head to Surfers Paradise Beach and Les Rodgers Memorial Park. Explore Gold Coast's surroundings by going to Mount Coot-tha Lookout (in Brisbane) and Moffat Beach (in Caloundra). Spend the 30th (Thu) exploring the fascinating underwater world at Sea World Theme Park. There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Burleigh Heads Beach, cool off at Dreamworld, browse the fresh offerings at Palm Beach Currumbin Farmers Markets, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary.

For where to stay, reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Gold Coast day trip planning tool .

If you are flying in from Malaysia, 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. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Sun) so you can travel back home.
