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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Sea World Theme Park and Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. Take a break from Gold Coast with a short trip to South Bank Parklands in Brisbane, about 1h 35 min away. There's still lots to do: find something for the whole family at Warner Bros. Movie World, enjoy the sand and surf at Burleigh Heads Beach, tee off at Surfers Paradise Golf Club, and meet the residents at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary.
