Surfers Paradise

Surfers Paradise

Surfers Paradise is a suburb of the Gold Coast known as 'Surfers'. It is one of the many golden white beaches that stretch for over 60km's from Beenleigh near Brisbane to Tweed Heads on the New South Wales border.

It is a premier holiday destination for families or for couples looking for a romantic getaway.

The most unique feature of Surfer's Paradise is that you can walk off the beach right into the heart of the CBD with shops, restaurants and cafes close by.

Wilderness Cove - State of Queensland

Wilderness Cove

Goold Island

Firstly, let me put the record straight by advising all readers that the correct spelling for Goold Island, is Goold Island and not Gould Island as suggested on these travel pages ;~)

Goold Island is a national park in Queensland and is close to the northern tip of Hinchinbrook Island. Because of the remoteness, it is one of my favourite getways down under.

Daydream Island - State of Queensland

Daydream Island

Whitsunday Islands

The Whitsunday Islands is a National Park and are a group of subtropical islands off the coast of Queensland between Townsville and Mackay.

The islands were named by James Cook in 1770 as he believed he passed through the area on the Christian festival day of Whit Sunday. We now accept that he didn't actually pass through on this date as the International Date Line didn't exist at the time.

There are many beautiful island groups with some stunning beaches and clear waters where you can swim snorkel and camp. Some islands even have large resorts.
