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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Gold Coast: Glow Worm Caves (in North Tamborine), Byron Bay (Cape Byron Walking Track & Cape Byron Lighthouse) and Caloundra (Dicky Beach & Moffat Beach). There's lots more to do: get in on the family fun at Sea World Theme Park, tour the pleasant surroundings at Coolangatta Beach, kick back and relax at Burleigh Heads Beach, and take in panoramic vistas at SkyPoint Observation Deck.

To see traveler tips, more things to do, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our Gold Coast travel route builder tool .

Expect a daytime high around 32°C in December, and nighttime lows around 22°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
