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.
Head to Robina Town Shopping Centre and Marina Miragefor some retail therapy. Step off the beaten path and head to Stand-Up Paddleboarding and Burleigh Head National Park. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Gold Coast: You and Bamboo (in Bogangar), Byron Bay (Kayaking & Canoeing & Belongil Beach) and Tropical Fruit World (in Duranbah). Spend the 13th (Sat) exploring nature at Natural Bridge. Spend the 20th (Sat) exploring nature at Springbrook National Park. There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Kirra Beach, enjoy the sand and surf at Tugun Beach, take some stellar pictures from Broken Head Nature Reserve, and get a taste of the local shopping with Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre.
