While COC and the latest proposals are very nice indeed, lets be honest here, most of the other highrises on the Gold Coast are hideous......
And yes it is a nice beach, but the beaches in Western Australia are SOOOO much better.

Exactly, the Gold Coast is certainly not the New Dubai, if anything it's the other way around. Which came first the chicken or the egg, in this case the GC certainly had modern skyscrapers and canals first. It funny how people allude to them being similar ... i guess they are in many ways but people need to remember the modern resort city of Surfers Paradise was here first, not to be excluded would be other resort cities too, like Miami, Benidorm etc.

I look at it as the "Miami of Australia," but it is referred to as the "Las Vegas of Australia." You actually have to be there to see it. The city streets are very similar to Miami's, esp in Surfers Paradise. 8/10
