Part 4: Gold Coast
Last Thursday I went on a little sailing trip with my dear friends from New Zealand.
Unfortunately we didn't have a lot of wind most of the time, so we couldn't speed as much as we would have liked.
We started our trip in Southport and sailed along the coast, passed famous Sea World on the way and turned around eventually.
There was a beautiful sunset as you can see in the photo which would have been best to be enjoyed from the ocean.
The Gold Coast is very busy and noisy. There are many high buildings, a lot of restaurants, shops and touristy attractions. Most of the theme parks in Queensland can be found along the Gold Coast.
I don't like visiting any of these parks, since I find them a bit dull and believe that they are solely aimed at maximising profit. My friend Eliza, who has been living here for almost 2 years describes the city as consumption-oriented.
However there are some really great places around here. You can read about some of them in the following posts.
Next up: The Hinterland
