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.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Surfers Paradise Beach and Burleigh Heads Beach. Attractions like Sea World Theme Park and Dreamworld make great kid-friendly stops. Get out of town with these interesting Gold Coast side-trips: Brisbane (Gallery of Modern Art, Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, & more), Cape Byron Lighthouse (in Byron Bay) and Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre (in Murwillumbah). There's still lots to do: buy something for everyone on your list at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, find something for the whole family at Warner Bros. Movie World, get some fabulous bargains at Harbour Town Outlet Shopping Centre, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary.

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major airports are Brisbane International Airport and Gold Coast Airport. In August, daily temperatures in Gold Coast can reach 25°C, while at night they dip to 11°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
