Gold Coast

— 8 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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Brisbane (Noosa Chocolate Factory, South Bank Parklands, &more). Pack the 7th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Dreamworld. There's still lots to do: get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Sea World Theme Park, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, find something for the whole family at Wet'n'Wild Gold Coast, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary.

To see more things to do, reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Gold Coast trip itinerary maker website.

Melbourne to Gold Coast is an approximately 4.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. Traveling from Melbourne in January, expect somewhat warmer with lows of 24°C in Gold Coast. On the 11th (Tue), you'll have the morning to explore before heading off to Noosa.
