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.
Head to Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre and Pacific Fair Shopping Centrefor some retail therapy. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Queensland Museum & Sciencentre and Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Surfers Paradise. Venture out of the city with trips to Moffat Beach (in Caloundra), Cape Byron Lighthouse (in Byron Bay) and Brisbane (Relove Oxley, Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, & more). Spend the 5th (Sun) exploring the fascinating underwater world at Sea World Theme Park. And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Surfers Paradise Beach, find something for the whole family at Dreamworld, browse the different shops at The Oasis Shopping Centre, and revel in the low prices at Harbour Town Outlet Shopping Centre.

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major airports are Brisbane International Airport and Gold Coast Airport. Expect a daytime high around 27°C in May, and nighttime lows around 15°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
