Sydney:

Following Sydney, I then flew to Brisbane where I started my 18-day journey in Queensland. Spending just a few days in Brisbane, I then went on to the Gold Coast where I spent my time sunbathing on Surfers Paradise and had the time to visit Sea World and Movie World.

Surfers Paradise Gold Coast.

“Australia : “ Surfers Paradise Gold Coast. “Australia” “Australia” was always a place I wanted to go and traveling by myself.  A country where I spoke the language seemed like a good start. The first official trip by myself began in “Queensland” where I Traveled to the Gold Coast and Stayed in “Surfers Paradise”. I really should have done more research on Surfers Paradise before going but it can be nice to have an element of surprise to a new adventure. Surfers paradise was a little out of my traveling comfort zone.

The Best (Non-touristy) Places on the Gold Coast

Surfers Paradise is undeniably the most famous part of the Gold Coast, but there’s so much more to see. There are several small beach towns along the coast, each one more charming than the other. Get away from the big tourist spots and visit the local gems – here’s a guide to my favourite places along the coast.
