Gold Coast

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.
Cape Byron Lighthouse and Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step off the beaten path and head to Greenmount Beach and Lennox Head Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Gold Coast side-trips: Byron Bay (Stand-Up Paddleboarding, Kayaking & Canoeing, & more), New Govardhana Australia (in Eungella) and Marian Valley - Shrine of Our Lady Help of Christians (in Canungra). Spend the 4th (Fri) exploring nature at Natural Bridge. Spend the 12th (Sat) exploring nature at Springbrook National Park. And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Burleigh Head National Park, pause for some serene contemplation at Saint Augustine's Catholic Church, tour the pleasant surroundings at Kurrawa Beach, and visit a coastal fixture at Captain Cook Memorial and Lighthouse.

In January, daytime highs in Gold Coast are 33°C, while nighttime lows are 24°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
