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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Cape Byron Lighthouse and Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Surfers Paradise. Visit Surfer's Paradise Beach and Burleigh Heads Beach for some beach relaxation. Step out of Gold Coast to go to Murwillumbah and see Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre, which is approximately 54 minutes away. There's much more to do: buy something for everyone on your list at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, meet the residents at Sea World Theme Park, and get some fabulous bargains at Harbour Town Outlet Shopping Centre.

Queensland’s biggest town and state capital, Brisbane has an attractive, manicured image based around its riverside aesthetic as well as the contrast between its high-rise center and extensive urban greenery.
