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.
Step out of the city life by going to Nature & Wildlife Tours and Currumbin Beach. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Wategos Beach and Greenmount Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Gold Coast side-trips: Brisbane (Eagle Street Pier & Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary), Byron Bay (Stand-Up Paddleboarding & Belongil Beach) and Lennox Head Beach (in Lennox Head). Spend the 9th (Sat) exploring nature at Springbrook National Park. Spend the 8th (Fri) exploring nature at Natural Bridge. There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Kurrawa Beach, get outside with Pelican Feeding, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Burleigh Head National Park, and enjoy the sea views from Captain Cook Memorial and Lighthouse.

For other places to visit, maps, ratings, and other tourist information, use the Gold Coast trip itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major airports are Brisbane International Airport and Gold Coast Airport. Expect a daytime high around 30°C in November, and nighttime lows around 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
