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 Pacific Fair Shopping Centre and Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centrefor plenty of shopping. Take a break from the city and head to Surfer's Paradise Beach and Coolangatta Beach. Take a break from Gold Coast with a short trip to Cape Byron Lighthouse in Byron Bay, about 1h 30 min away. The adventure continues: find something for the whole family at Sea World Theme Park, get some fabulous bargains at Harbour Town Outlet Shopping Centre, buy something for everyone on your list at Marina Mirage, and see the interesting displays at Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Surfers Paradise.

Plan my Gold Coast trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Singapore, Singapore to Gold Coast is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train. The time zone changes from Singapore Time to Australian Eastern Standard Time (Queensland), which is usually a 2 hour difference. Prepare for slightly colder weather when traveling from Singapore in November: high temperatures in Gold Coast hover around 30°C and lows are around 20°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 25th (Sun) early enough to go by car to Brisbane.
