I will be arriving at the airport at July 3(wed) 4.50pm, stay for 3 nights and leave by Sunday 9am departure flight.
I may be stay at the Coolangatta yha since I arrive late and leave early(I believe i can just walk to the airport ?). My problem is not knowing what to do during the middle 3 full days.
After reading much from websites and guidebooks, all I gather are the beaches and theme parks.
1)Its winter, will the beaches be "active" then ?
2)I may spend I day trip to Brisbane or stay a night there. Is Brisbane great for night view or events that I should not miss ?
3)In every place I travel, I like to walk and explore the place but no idea where to walk in Gold Coast, unlike any other cities where there are suggested walks. Can anyone suggest where I can walk or take public bus to see nice views, buildings, shopping malls, shops or cafes ? I am prepared to walk a full day.
4) If I wish to spend on just 1 theme or 2 theme park, which will you recommend for more thrills for adults(not kids) like rollercoaster rides etc ? Is it Dreamworld ? I will miss their June entry offer, how much will it be in July(not stated in their website) ?
