A Sweet Escape to Surfers Paradise


Gold Coast's Surfers Paradise

On Queen's Birthday public holiday (yesterday), we had a sweet escape to Gold Coast's Surfers Paradise. Everything was unplanned and we were totally unprepared. I guess, that's the fun of having such unplanned trip. Just jump in your car and start driving without knowing the exact destination :P

We used a different route to get there instead of following the "usual route" we normally take.

The building consists a variety of restaurants that lies under a big tent,
surrounded with cool little blue neon lights.

    Hi Andy, I think so. Sunset in Toowoomba is around 5, but I'm not sure about Gold Coast though.

    Anyway, I'll be going down to Brisbane this coming Saturday for the River Fireoworks, will see if the sun sets about the same time =)
