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.
For shopping fun, head to Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre or You and Bamboo. Museum-lovers will get to explore Tweed Regional Museum - Murwillumbah and Anthea Polson Art. Change things up with these side-trips from Gold Coast: Byron Bay (Cape Byron Lighthouse, Spas, & more), New Govardhana Australia (in Eungella) and Fingal Head Lighthouse (in Fingal Head). The adventure continues: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Bexhill Open Air Cathedral, enjoy the sand and surf at Kurrawa Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Kirra Beach, and steep yourself in history at Boggo Road Gaol (Jail).
