Gold Coast by Fabs

Some photos of the Gold Coast, the largest non-capital city in Australia home to over 500 000 residents and is a major tourist destination for Australian's and foreigners.

Skyline shot from the northern suburb of Biggera Waters. Talk about it being long east to west.





The amazing cluster of towers around Surfers Paradise.





Main Beach





The beaches.

















Some things will never change!!!



Cavill Mall draws good crowds.





Great place to shop if you like it.









Or if you love your malls, why not visit Robina?





If you need a urban lifestyle, you'd like it there too.







Main Beach is renowned for being upmarket, but Broadbeach gives a good alternative.













For families or those who cannot put up with the crowds, Coolangatta will always be there.







And stay between the flags!!!

Great photos Fabian. One thing I like about living in Brisbane. Gold Coast is less than an hours drive away, but it's SO different. Couldn't imagine living in a city where there wasn't another one adjacent.

Love the Broadbeach photos. That place has really taken off lately.

Robina

Robina has emerged as one of the major Satellite Cities of the Gold Coast in recent years. It is still a work in progress and is less than 90 minutes travel by rail from the centre of Brisbane.

It also contains Skilled Park Stadium home to the NRL Team Gold Coast Titans and the A-League Soccer Team, Gold Coast United with a capacity of 25 000. Robina is also home to one of the largest shopping centres on the Gold Coast - Robina Town Centre with 300 shops and is currently undergoing expansion to include a Myer department store.

Robina Rocket - The tallest building currently in the suburb.
