Super travel tips, all road tested by David Herd. I'm an Australian guy who moved to Thailand in 2011 & still travel the world as often as possible.

Wonderful view of Surfers Paradise

Q1 Surfers Paradise skyscraper on the Gold Coast in 2006. It lost its title as the world’s tallest residential tower to the 348 meter Marina Torch in Dubai in 2011. The resort offers 80 levels of luxury apartment-style accommodation.

SkyPoint, formerly known as QDeck, is an observation deck at levels 77 and 78. It is Australia’s only beach-side observation deck and has room enough for 400 people.

Q1 Surfers Paradise skyscraper

Notice the twin towers are nearing completion. Circle on Cavill is a $551 million commercial development with two residential towers built by the Sunland Group and positioned in a key city block in the heart of the Surfers Paradise CBD, The South Tower was completed around March 2007 and the North Tower was completed around July 2007. Both towers are joined on level 4 lounge which takes in the view of the Nerang River. The tallest point of the north tower is approximately 220 m and reflects a recent trend to building upwards in Surfers’ skyline, also reflected in the construction of Q1 and Soul.

Avalon Apartments

In 2007 I thought I had sold my home so I rented an apartment in Avalon, sadly the contract on my home collapsed and it cost me about $1500 to get out of the lease I had signed.
