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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre and Gallery of Modern Art. Do some cultural sightseeing at Queensland Art Gallery and Queensland Museum & Sciencentre. Change things up with these side-trips from Gold Coast: Cape Byron Lighthouse (in Byron Bay) and Brisbane (Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, Relove Oxley, & more). Spend the 8th (Tue) exploring nature at Les Rodgers Memorial Park. There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Surfers Paradise Beach, explore the world behind art at 19 Karen Contemporary Artspace, find something for the whole family at Warner Bros. Movie World, and revel in the low prices at Harbour Town Outlet Shopping Centre.

If you are flying in from New Zealand, the closest major airports are Brisbane International Airport and Gold Coast Airport. Expect a daytime high around 29°C in October, and nighttime lows around 18°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
