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.
Step out of the city life by going to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary and Coolangatta Beach. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre and Harbour Town Outlet Shopping Centre. Explore Gold Coast's surroundings by going to Brisbane (Gallery of Modern Art, Queensland Art Gallery, & more). Spend the 15th (Sun) exploring the fascinating underwater world at Sea World Theme Park. There's lots more to do: stroll through Surfers Paradise Beach, view the masterpieces at Anthea Polson Art, enjoy the sand and surf at Burleigh Heads Beach, and see the interesting displays at Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Surfers Paradise.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Gold Coast fast, fun, and easy.

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airports are Brisbane International Airport and Gold Coast Airport.
