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.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Surfer's Paradise Beach and Coolangatta Beach. Popular historic sites such as Cape Byron Lighthouse and Captain Cook Memorial and Lighthouse are in your itinerary. Change things up with these side-trips from Gold Coast: Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre (in Murwillumbah), Cape Byron Walking Track (in Byron Bay) and The Treat Shop (in Eagle Heights). The adventure continues: buy something for everyone on your list at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, find something for the whole family at Sea World Theme Park, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, and kick back and relax at Burleigh Heads Beach.
