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.
Get in touch with nature at Surfers Paradise Beach and Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. For shopping fun, head to Pacific Fair Shopping Centre or Harbour Town Outlet Shopping Centre. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Gold Coast: Brisbane (Opal Museum, Queensland Museum & Sciencentre, & more), Cape Byron Lighthouse (in Byron Bay) and Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre (in Murwillumbah). Spend the 15th (Thu) exploring the fascinating underwater world at Sea World Theme Park. Next up on the itinerary: see the interesting displays at Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Surfers Paradise, take in the exciting artwork at Anthea Polson Art, browse the different shops at Robina Town Shopping Centre, and get in on the family fun at Infinity Attraction.
