Tweed  supports the biggest clubs for the Gold Coast. Due to the prohibition of slot machines in Queensland until fairly recently. Two huge clubs were built right on the border to cater for Queenslanders who wanted to play slots. Twin Towns Services Club and the Seagulls Club. These licencing laws have been lifted now and you will find slots in nearly all the clubs on the Gold Coast. The extra revenue from the slots, enable these clubs to serve up entertainment and food at very reasonable rates. You will find RSL and Surf  Life Saving Clubs in every suburb along […]

Restaurants recommended by a local for visitors to the Gold Coast. Restaurants play an important role in the vacationers itinerary. Finding a great restaurant  is not easy when you are new to an area. Also what one thinks of as a great restaurant will vary from each individuals taste. Taste not only in food but ambiance as well. I love good food and the whole social interaction that is entailed in sharing a good meal with good company. My highest recommendation for a seafood restaurant is “Omeros Brothers Seafood Restaurant” at 4 Marina Mirage, Seaworld Drive, Main Beach, Gold Coast. […]

As a local I prefer to spend the summer months around the beaches in the mornings followed by lunch at one of the many restaurants on the foreshore. In winter I love to visit the “Hinterland” an enchanting, mysterious adventure land in nature.

The Antarctic Beech trees are a species that have survived here since prehistoric times. Many of the plants here are found nowhere else on earth.     The buttressed roots of an Antarctic Beech, […]

From Surfers Paradise Looking South to Coolangatta – Beaches stretch as far as the eye can see. From Surfers  Paradise  looking north – Beaches stretch as far as the eye can see. One of the first questions my overseas visitors ask me about the beaches on the Gold Coast  is “What about the sharks?” Well there has not been a fatal shark attack on the patrolled Gold Coast surfing beaches since 1958. The Queensland Department of Primary  Industries carries out  the Queensland Shark Control Program [SCP] to protect swimmers from sharks. This is just another good reason to only swim […]
