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.
Get outdoors at Natural Bridge and Burleigh Heads Beach. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Springbrook National Park and Tamborine Mountain. Get out of town with these interesting Gold Coast side-trips: Brisbane (South Bank Parklands & Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary). There's much more to do: explore the striking landscape of Burleigh Head National Park, identify plant and animal life at David Fleay Wildlife Park, whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, and stroll through Kurrawa Beach.

Plan my trip to Gold Coast with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Los Angeles, USA to Gold Coast is an approximately 18.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 18 hours traveling from Los Angeles to Gold Coast. Traveling from Los Angeles in July, things will get slightly colder in Gold Coast: highs are around 69°F and lows about 49°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 7th (Tue) early enough to go by car to Mooloolaba.
