Gold Coast — 3 nights

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.

There's still lots to do: get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Sea World Theme Park, experience the excitement of Infinity Attraction, get in on the family fun at Kids in Paradise Fun Park, and enjoy the sand and surf at Surfers Paradise Beach.
