well for starters the GOLD COAST has better surf and beaches...

and secondly i dont know how interesting miami is exactly.. but the Gold Coast plays host to Oceania's 4 best theme parks.

for a city of 470'000 this city is awsome.. in holiday season the population swells to somethine like 900'000/ 1million people. and most of them are on the coastal strip. a very dense part of the coast.

While the skyine is interesting in that it is a linear strip crowded against a beach - the quality of the buildings is not great. When Q1 and other UC towers come online perhaps my opinion of the quality will improve

The Gold Coast is a great city. The reason most of the towers look boring is that most of them were built in the 80's by a stack of Japanese businessmen who lost fortunes.
They also built over 40 international Golf Courses, some designed by greats such as Greg Norman. The Ecological side of the city is also breath taking. Those mountains are all reminants of what was once the Southern Hemisphere's largest volcano. Now it is the Southern Hemisphere's largest volcanic crater. Big enough to fit Los Angeles 3 times!!!!!

There is also a World Heritage National Park in our hinterland and the annual whale migration makes for a great show.

The Gold Coast is a great place to live, work and play.

We currently make more movies than anywhere else in the Southern Hemisphere. Warner Brothers studios are here.

And as for tourist attractions, more have been planned then there ever has been here. We once had planned:

A Walt DisneyWorld Australia themepark
A 150 metre tall bronze statue of a lifesaver. Planned for an island that seperates the ocean access in the Boradwater (Our harbour).
A snow theme park that would have literally, covered a mountain in the Gold Coast hinterland with snow. We've never even seen snow fall on the Gold Coast.
4 other smaller themeparks.
A cruise ship terminal(Still being considered)
Two cableways up the hills behind the city.
The world's tallest building.

Plus several others that I can't think of because I'm too tired. But seriously, the Gold Coast is a great place. We do have some problems with traffic and water, but that's about it.

Cruise Ship Terminal sounds like a great idea

Sorry, but it DOES look like a not very interesting copy of Miami. And Miami has a great Latin influence to much of its architecture that I don't see here (re: the Villa Vizcaya and Addison Mizner's 1920s buildings, etc.).

No South Beach Deco, either.

im pretty sure the entire skyline if you include Runaway bay to north and Coolangattea in south measures 31km!! that would be worlds longest??
the central area of Surfers paradise (where all the talls are) stretches 7km!
it really is a highrise wonderland. With 322m Q1 uc and many more in pipeline over 200m it will definatley be one of the finest skylines in the world! thats what this poll is about right? skylines?
so 10/10 from me!
