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.
Visit Burleigh Heads Beach and Moffat Beach for some beach relaxation. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre and Pacific Fair Shopping Centre. Get out of town with these interesting Gold Coast side-trips: Brisbane (MacArthur Museum Brisbane, Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, &more), Caloundra (Caloundra Regional Art Gallery & Dicky Beach) and TAVAS Aviation Museum (in Caboolture). There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Surfers Paradise Beach, look for all kinds of wild species at David Fleay Wildlife Park, examine the collection at Landsborough Museum, and take in the exciting artwork at Thomgallery.
