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.
Attractions like Sea World Theme Park and Surfers Paradise Beach make great kid-friendly stops. Get out of town with these interesting Gold Coast side-trips: Brisbane (South Bank Parklands, City Botanic Gardens, &more). Next up on the itinerary: get in on the family fun at Warner Bros. Movie World, cool off at Dreamworld, get a taste of the local shopping with Sanctuary Markets, and explore the striking landscape of Burleigh Head National Park.

You can plan Gold Coast trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Gold Coast is an approximately 12.5-hour flight. Traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Gold Coast, you'll lose 2 hours due to the time zone difference.
