Things to do on the Gold Coast

The Gold Coast is massive – 70 kilometers of coastline, famed for its long sandy beaches, surfing and elaborate system of inland canals and waterways. It’s also home to the Dreamworld, Movie World, Sea World and Wet’n’Wild theme parks. Inland, hiking trails crisscross Lamington National Park’s mountain ridges and valleys, home to rare birds and rainforest.
