Hi Sara,

I used to live on the Gold Coast here are a few things to do while there - although this depends what things you are into. I recommend taking a surf lesson at Surfers Paradise or hike Mt Warning if you like the outdoors. Byron Bay  is strongly recommend to visit as the town is close by with only an hours drive, this town is right on the beach with a laid back atmosphere with many hippies and musicians playing music and surfing or you can enjoy sun-tanning on the beaches. Try visit North Stradbroke Island for excellent Scuba diving.

As for the Gold Coast itself the city reminds me of Miami, with skyscraper buildings right on the beach and many long beaches to enjoy - similar types of people and culture.

Hey Sara,

There are some great national parks nearby such as Springbrook National Park and the Tamborine Mountain. You could rent a car and see them over a few days. Also visiting Noosa which is a few hours away is really recommended! Great town where Steve Irwins zoo is.
