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.
Get out of town with these interesting Gold Coast side-trips: Brisbane (South Bank Parklands, Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, &more), Caloundra Regional Art Gallery (in Caloundra) and Australia Zoo (in Beerwah). And it doesn't end there: get in on the family fun at Warner Bros. Movie World, enjoy the sand and surf at Burleigh Heads Beach, cool off at Dreamworld, and pause for some serene contemplation at St. Peter's Anglican Church.

For traveler tips, reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Gold Coast trip planner.
