How many kilometres apart is Brisbane's CBD from Gold Coast? Is it conceivable that the 2 cities will merge into one long strip of built up area with a CBD at each end?

Brisbane is 72km (44 miles) from the Gold Coast by motorway -- about 45 minutes drive if you don't get stuck in traffic. Most estimates say that the two cities will eventually merge, and will have two separate CBD's. Though the Gold Coast's CBD will either be Surfers Paradise, Southport, or Robina.

Here's a good photo for you.

Shows both Brisbane and the Gold Coast.

Thanks. There is more vacant land between the two than I expected, but it looks like they will eventually meet up. Perhaps, it will happen inland rather than along the coast as I has assumed.

I honestly don't think that there is any city in Australia that can even compete with Sydney's skyline.
