Help on Accomodation

by lwk-my

Hello :)

I am planning a trip to Gold Coast in March '09 staying for 3 nights. My budget for accomodation is max AUD100/nite.

I am looking for a quiet place, located within walking distance to the beach, shops and restaurants and easy to get public transport. I am looking at either room with ensuite bathroom or 1-bedroom self-contained apartment.

I have shortlisted the following options :

1. Costa D-Ora Apartments, Surfers Paradise
2. The Shore Holiday Apartments, Surfers Paradise
3. Karana Palm Resorts. Chevron Island
4. Club Surfers, Surfers Paradise
5. The Shore, Surfers Paradise
6. Breakfree Rays, Southport
7. Browns at Broadbeach, Broadbeach

I would like some advice on which of the above are the best based on the requirements listed above.

Many thanks for your response.

Hi there... I'm not a huge fan of the Gold Coast, so I hope some locals give you better advice!

Quiet is certainly not to be found in Surfers Paradise...skip it.

I really enjoyed Broadbeach though - cool place with some nice restaurant/bars yet not so 'Surfers Paradise cheesey'. I can't give an opinion on Browns...only that Broadbeach was a nice little area.

Happy travels :)

I see you've put down The Shore twice. Had a look and I reckon this looks good. If the price is right, then I would go for this accommodation. Have a wonderful time on the Gold Coast! There's heaps to do and see!! 3 nights is probably too short....so you'll need to be selective in what you do and see :o)

If there is anything else we can help you with, please do not hesitate to ask.

Cheers, Ann :o)

Yeah, if you want it a bit more quiet I would look for somewhere a bit further south, for example Palm Beach or even Coolangatta. Perhaps the Royal Palm - they often have specials with cheaper rates. I'm sure you can negotiate.

Travel Tips for Gold Coast

Lamington National Park

by Gwynneth

Visit O'Reilly's at Lamington National Park.

This rainforest is about 2 hours drive south from Brisbane.

Here you can take the world famous tree top walk, wander through the botanical gardens, feed beautiful, wild crimson rosellas, admire the breathtaking views or venture along one of the many walking tracks available.

International Infoline Ph: +61 7 5544 0644
International Fax: +61 7 5544 0638 The O'Reilly's have been welcoming people to their mountain for over 80 years. In all, they have introduced three generations of Australians to the rainforest, waterfalls and wildlife of the a famous Lamington National Park - now nominated for World Heritage Listing.

The bird life is very friendly here. Just standing in the right spot with a few seeds in your hands is all it takes for them to know you are there to see them up close. Please take your camera... you wont be disappointed!

Binna Burra - Lamington National Park

by ATXtraveler

Since Sarah and I took our trip during the middle of winter, we did not spend as much time at the beach, but rather out in the Hinterland, which is chock full of beautiful National Parks.

Binna Burra is full of great bushwalks, and has many guides who are trained naturalists, to show you the part from their perspective. There are 160Kms worth of walking tracks, so bring your hiking boots and get started!

We only enjoyed the views from the lodge, but with more time, we would have enjoyed even more!

Plenty of places near the...

Plenty of places near the Cavill Mall.
You've got to have some fun at night. Wednesday nights are hospitality nights, it's big. Very loose standards compare to Brisbane. Apparently you can wear sandshoes in most places.

Fresh Seafood????? I am not sure.....

by shindybaby about Seafood Mania

During the lunch hour, this restaurant is the most crowded restaurant in the street. And the food looks nice.... So I and Baby decided to have lunch there.....

However, we were very disappointed.... first, there are lots of flies around which are really annoying.... (though there are always lots of flies in Australia!!)

Second, the food looks good, but it doesn't really taste very good.... It seems that the seafood was not actually fresh. I guess the seafood were packaged food which can also be found in the supermarket.... The food does not worth such a price...... Not really.....

Point Danger

by tiabunna

I thought it may be helpful for visitors to this page (and maybe to the Gold Coast) if in my tips I follow the sequence of beaches (some, not all) northward up the Coast from the Queensland border. Head eastward from the main street of Coolangatta in the previous tip for about a kilometer and you will find yourself at Point Danger - and away we go!

The border of Queensland and New South Wales reaches the coast at Point Danger. Captain Cook named this point, to indicate a risk to mariners, during his 1770 voyage of discovery along Australia’s east coast. It since has been surmounted by a warning light, rebuilt in stylised form in 1971 as the Captain Cook Memorial Light and fitted with the world’s first laser navigation light (but since replaced with a conventional light) (photo 1).

If you look southward from the light you will see the mouth of the Tweed River with its two substantial breakwaters (photo 2). In the early 1960s these were extended to overcome silting problems – and caused a sand build-up southward with a severe reduction of beaches on the southern Gold Coast. In the early 1990s,the strange cantilever structure was built to the south, feeding underground bypass pipes to enable sand to move northward. Not only are the beaches of Coolangatta now sandy, they are absurdly wide While we were there, a surfing contest was under way at Duranbar Beach, between the Tweed and Point Danger (photo 3).

The website below gives details about overcoming the sand problem
