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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre and Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre. Change things up with a short trip to Cape Byron Lighthouse in Byron Bay (about 1h 30 min away). There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Surfer's Paradise Beach, browse the different shops at Marina Mirage, stroll through Burleigh Heads Beach, and get in on the family fun at Warner Bros. Movie World.

For where to stay, more things to do, traveler tips, and other tourist information, you can read our Gold Coast trip builder site .

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 5th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
