    All the glamorous attractions aside, the reason why Gold Coast is such a great place is because of their beach. The sand is soft and firm, perfect for long walk and run. Weather is pleasant year-round, and water is just gorgeous.

    I really enjoyed the beaches here, from the airplane i saw people in the water at 7am in the morning. Weather was amazing and water wasn't too cold.

    The sunny and beautiful Gold Coast of Australia is very popular with tourists because of it beautiful white sand beaches. This place is definitely set up to cater to a tourist population.

    Well, this is a tourist town through and through. It's basically a lower key vegas. Young adults come here to get debaucherous, show off their bodies on the beach, and around the beach located shopping area, there are hot "meter babes" that kindly put money in your meter for free, whilst strutting around in golden bikinis and heels. Lots of very tourist attractions, and a very beautiful setting with ibis's, cockatoos, lizards, and all sorts of other exotic animals wondering around. A very superficial place though.

    Great Barrier Reef & Beyond, Queensland...

    Queensland is Australia’s sunshine state, home to World Heritage rainforest and the magnificent Great Barrier Reef. The northern gateway, tropical Cairns, is the perfect base from which to explore the rainforest, experience Aboriginal culture up-close, and visit the wonders of the reef.

    Indulge in an island getaway or cruise—perhaps in the Whitsundays, heart of the Great Barrier Reef? Divers, snorkelers, and sunbathers alike will find plenty of fun in the sun in Queensland’s Tropical North. In Southern Queensland, the capital city of Brisbane is a jumping-off point to the rainforest and mountains of Lamington National Park; Fraser Island, the world’s largest sand island; the sophisticated Gold Coast; and the Sunshine Coast, home of the Crocodile Hunter’s Australia Zoo.

    I have a soft spot for this place since some of my closest aussie friends are from this area and it is beautiful. In some places, the beach is only a 10 minute walk from the business parks. I have colleagues and friends who surf during their lunch breaks.

    Gold Coast is probably the best city in Australia and among the best in the world.
