A Tour of the Australian Gold Coast: Broadbeach, Surfers Paradise, Currumbin Rock Pools and Burleigh Point

I consider the Gold Coast to be a home away from home and it’s with great pleasure that I show you around this area.

The Gold Coast is located about an hours drive south of Brisbane, Australia. There are Gold Coast airports but if you’re visiting from a different country, you can land in Brisbane and take a train directly from the Brisbane airport to the suburbs of the Gold Coast. Once you get there, you can take a bus to downtown Surfers Paradise quite easily.

It’s affectionately known “sunny place for shady people.” Though I hear that the “bikey gangs” run the town, I’ve never felt like it’s anything other than safe and friendly. I would guess that this place is the Las Vegas of Australia. They have long beautiful beaches, a beautiful broad-water system where many well off people live and a stunning hinterland.

It’s also a great place to come to party… if you’re into that sort of thing.
