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 get in some beach time at Surfers Paradise Beach and Belongil Beach. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre and Jambama Arts Gallery. Get out of town with these interesting Gold Coast side-trips: Ballina (Ballina Naval & Maritime Museum, Richmond River Lighthouse, & more), Ophir Reserve (in Orange) and Whian Whian State Conservation Area (in Whian Whian). Spend the 8th (Thu) exploring the fascinating underwater world at Sea World Theme Park. There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, tour the pleasant surroundings at Coolangatta Beach, browse the exhibits of Lismore Regional Gallery, and take in the exciting artwork at Lone Goat Gallery.
