Central GC skyline = Surfers + Southport + Main Beach + Broadbeach = 49,000.

Side? I'm not taking sides, but don't expect to get away with comparing a city to an entire metro area, etc.

Anyway, what is clear is that of those three,
The Gold Coast has the largest skyline per capita.
Miami has the tallest skyline.
Rio de Janeiro has the largest skyline.

7.5/10, building designs are too disparate, not too dense.

Then you've clearly never been out in other cities. It comes nowhere near the diversity of Sydney and Melbourne on nightlife. I have been out in GC and it was a pretty rabid experience. There is absolutely no live music scene. Even Brisbane is far superior.

The close proximity to Brisbane (50 odd miles north of the Gold Coast) which also has a good nightlife and is home to the largest number of clubs/pubs/bars in Australia.
That is an outright lie. It doesn't even come close. Precincts alone in Melbourne are as big as the Fortitude Valley (which is what I'm sure you are referring to) - and we have several of them.


Sorry if I seem like I'm meddling, but I found that post hard to digest.

Actually its true.

Nowhere in Sydney or Melbourne comes close to Fortitude Valley. You have to see it to believe it, its like nowhere else in Australia.

Melbourne and Sydney on the other hand are full of little nightclub precincts spread over vast areas. Small places like Oxford St in Sydney and Chapel Street in Melbourne - but nothing the size of The Valley.

You're right. Being 17, I can only risk going clubbing on the Gold Coast and Brisbane with a fake ID, therefore my opinion is only based on my experience in the two cities (which I find Brisbane to be the better of the two). However, with a mere four cities (GC, Melb, Syd, Bris) offering a decent nightlife, I don't find it any stretch of the imagination to presume that the Gold Coast is one of the better (though still presumably ranked 4th amongst the bigger cities). As for live music, there are pubs, clubs and bars on the Gold Coast which offer a variety of live music though it only really exists once you get away from glitter and glamour which is Orchid Avenue and Cavill Avenue etc.

I think JayT answered this one spot on.

Makati, Philippines could look like GC in the near future with the 2 supertalls(1 u/c) dominating its skyline in the next 2 years. Nice city though. I may wanna come to GC next time or live and work there..Ü♥♥♥
