I drove to Gold Coast from Brisbane with a friend who was studying in Brisbane. We did this trip for the famous Surfers Paradise Beach and to try our hands at surfing :D but of cos, we did went to a few other attractions at Gold Coast.
We shopped our heart out at Harbour Town, took all the crazy rides at Dreamworld, stayed over for a night and went for a surfing lesson at Surfers Paradise Beach!
I am so glad I did Gold Coast when I was in my 20s, because I am not sure if I will enjoy as much if I am older.. Anyway it was soooo fun and we had a great time there!
Photography gear used - Canon DIGITAL IXUS 100 IS.
Harbour Town in Gold Coast. Pretty empty. Everyone was probably at the beach.
Next at Dreamworld! We took the craziest rides and we didn't have to queue as it wasn't crowded.
At Surfer Paradise Beach. There are plenty of restaurants, bars and shops.
There were many high rise residential buildings near the beach, I can only imagine how you would wake up on that ocean view..
It was burning hot on shore but cold in the water.
Giant pizza after the surf.
