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.
Get in touch with nature at Dolphin & Whale Watching and Stand-Up Paddleboarding. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre and Cape Byron Lighthouse. Explore Gold Coast's surroundings by going to Point Stephens Lighthouse (in Fingal Bay), Byron Bay (Byron Bay Cookies Retail Store & Kayaking & Canoeing) and New Govardhana Australia (in Eungella). Spend the 31st (Sat) exploring nature at Natural Bridge. Spend the 7th (Sat) exploring nature at Springbrook National Park. There's lots more to do: stroll through Burleigh Head National Park, don't miss a visit to Boggo Road Gaol (Jail), identify plant and animal life at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Bexhill Open Air Cathedral.

For where to stay, photos, ratings, and other tourist information, go to the Gold Coast trip planner.

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major airports are Brisbane International Airport and Gold Coast Airport. Expect a daytime high around 25°C in August, and nighttime lows around 11°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 8th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
