Gold Coast is great!

Australia... maybe the best country in the world! Congrats Aussie's, you're simply the best.

Gold Coast has Australia's most incredible skyline, considering it contains less than one-seventh of Sydney's population.

This is probably the best example of a linear skyline. Great placement of the buildings along the coast, but aerial photos show somewhat little density

Yeah, it isn't the most dense skyline, however a lot of that is due to people wanting uninterrupted views of the ocean and/or of the hinterland. Also, being Australia's tourism mecca, a lot of the highrises are also resorts, and have pools/tennis courts, etc located on the block on land.

Here's some amazing aerials taken by Fabian

I actually like the fact that it's linear. It looks very impressive from afar!

But I guess you can't really have much density too considering the fact that there's too much water inland. I never realized there were that many residential canals!

yeah, from afar it does look quite imposing and much, much larger than the city really is.

As for the canals, I believe there is something like 890km of canals (which to my understanding is more than Amsterdam and Venice combined, times two!) with over 80,000 waterfront properties
