was expecting some new pics with the completed Q1..

anyway, i think Gold Coast have a very unique skyline - a whole row of them. Q1 definitely improved the skyline a lot. can't wait for Q2!!

8.5/10

I have been to the gold coast , and i can honestly say i was not impressed with the city itself

i remeber arriving an hour and ten minutes later from the aiport in brisbane. It was around 7:30 pm and the city was DEAD. Very dark , not enough lighting , not a soul walking the streets

The mountains and woods i loved , how could i not i really enjoyed myself

The theme parks are overrated and there isnt much to do in the city center, actually there is a lot to do , but you can do it all in one night (around 6 hours or so) and that about it. So i would only recommend people stay for a week max and travel all over the country instead

Gold Coast is simply stunning for such a low population.


My vote is a 10.

8.5/10 - One of the best resort-style skylines in the world. That line of high-rises looks so good. However, the architecture isn't so great.

Great city. Must be Australia's equivalent to America's South Florida.
