Australian Gold Coast is spectacular
Australian Gold Coast is spectacular, semi tropical climate, 25 kilometers of beautiful beaches, an amazing skyline and lots of good restaurants & bars.
Tall building is Soul & the Hilton
Soul is a 243 m (797 ft) tall residential tower local on the corner of Cavill Avenue and The Esplanade in Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. It has overtaken Circle on Cavill as the second tallest building on the Gold Coast, behind Q1. The building was approved by the Gold Coast City Council in October 2004 and finished construction in 2012 along with the next stage of the Gold Coast renovation project. Use THIS LINK to book a great rate at the Hilton.
Surfers Paradise beach
The tall blue building is Q1 a skyscraper in Surfers Paradise, on the Gold Coast, Queensland. It lost its title as the world’s tallest residential tower to the 348 metre building The Marina Torch in Dubai on 29 April 2011.Wikipedia
A surfboat is an oar-driven boat designed to enter the ocean from the beach in heavy surf or severe waves. It is often used in lifesaving or rescue missions where the most expedient access to victims is directly from the beach.
Circle on Cavill offers great ocean views and is a good location to spend your holidays, use this link for an excellent room rate.

Melbourne Cup day at Moo Moo in Broadbeach.
Moo Moo restaurant is a great place to “people watch”, not bad for a steak as well.
Melbourne Cup day at Melbas on the Park.
Melbas has been my favourite Gold Coast bar since 1981. It was owned by the late Paul Allen one of the coasts most colourful characters.
Thank you for visiting my Australian Gold Coast post, it was great to catch up with old friends & family.
I can’t visit the Gold Coast without thinking of my beautiful home I built in 1990 and lived there for 21 years before moving to Thailand.
I just got a copy of this video article that went up on the BBC in the UK just on the day of the start of the Games. The long lasting legacy, including from a business point of view, is the positive publicity the City has received internationally from the Games…Hope to see as many locals as possible at Surfers Paradise for the Australia athlete’s thank you and celebration event…come see your sporting heroes up close and personal from 9am.
