Short Review 

Having traveled Australia and the world extensively, I know  what an advantage it is to have a local show you around any country.
I have been a regular visitor to the Gold Coast since 1956 and  a permanent resident since the year 2000.
 I invite you to browse through this site to see the Gold Coast  through my eyes.

 I will attempt to show you all the  things to see and do when  you visit and hopefully  be able to instil the atmosphere of the  place and the character of the people acurately within these pages.

Australia is a vast  and very beautiful continent. The Gold Coast is a little jewel amongst many that Australia has to offer, admired by all who visit.

The Gold Coast caters to the most discerning visitor who seeks the highest standard of luxury as well as the very budget conscious visitor and backpackers alike.

The following video will give you a glimpse of what the Gold Coast has to offer.

The Gold Coast has been named the Tourist Capital of Australia due to its climate and entertainment.
The diversity of the landscape within such a relatively small area offers a huge variety of activities to the visitor.

Miles of golden sand beaches grace the 70 kilometres of uninterupted coastline.
Some of the oldest forrests in the world, grace the hinterland, abundant with wildlife and scenery to take your breath away.

A huge variety of outdoor activities can be enjoyed in fine weather for an average of  245 days a year.
Day time tempertures are above 22 degrees for 280 days a year.

The clean air and weather conditions of  the Gold Coast  made it the ideal place for film production.

C.V. Wood [1920 - 1999] affectionately known as "Woody" who was instrumental in the development  of Disneyland, saw the potential of building a theme park on the Gold Coast. Warner Bros. Movie world opened it's doors to the public in 1991 and is now the only movie related theme park in Australia.
