Well if you have been wondering what The Gold Coast looks like then here is a pic which gives you a good idea. This truck is delivering beer, wine and spirits to a local business and I had to photo the banner.
You can see all the highrise along the ocean (Pacific) and the hinterland and mountains in the distance (where the Chateau is located). So if you love all things water…surfing, boating, swimming, fishing, diving, whale watching just to mention a few the Coast has it. Or if you prefer mountains, rainforests, bush walks, etc. then the hinterland and mountains will suit.
The Gold Coast will host the 2014 Commonwealth Games. Not a bad place to visit.
Upon returning to Australia from New York I wanted somewhere that reminded me of NY (the highrise) but was much more laid back. This place fits the bill.
Another closer view is of Main Beach below. I had many long walks along this beach both morning and late afternoon. Magnificent!
Like everything in life there is a drawback. Just can’t think what it is.
Still, no place is like New York.
