    The Currumbin Rock Pools are a must see if you get a chance, you can get to them from any part of the Gold Coast. Have taken a few of my friends from all over the world and they have all loved the place. There is the Currumbin Rock Pools and then there is the something national park. It isn’t called the something National Park I have just forgotten the name. if I remember I will have a look and update this next time I am out there. It is a must there is a peaceful bush walk and numerous swimming holes. If you are game have a jump or take the slide... Warning this is very dangerous and some people have received serious injuries. In saying that it is a must to get out there on a nice day and go for a swim in one of the many swimming holes.

    Surfer's paradise

    I made decision to visit golden coast in a rush way, coz my flatmate was told to work over there on X'mas 2003. I didn't want to be alone at Sydney, so I taged along with her there for an almost free vocation. This is the 'surfer's paradise' beach where we spent in the first day afternoon. It may be the longest beach in Australia which is so incredible.

    Feeding time for the Lorikeets. They're all over!

    Our miniature steam train winds throughout the park providing visitors with a description of what the Sanctuary has to offer.

    The Sanctuary is not just about animals - there's also plenty of native plant species throughout the park including our main flora displays such as the Wet Tropical Rainforest Aviary, Flora Gully, and the new Bush Tucker Garden. A number of rare and endangered native species benefit from the research and development undertaken at the Sanctuary.

    Take in the sights of Australia by visiting the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary where you can see native animals face to face in natural surroundings. The Sanctuary is also recognised worldwide as a quality research and conservation facility.

    Conveniently situated beside the main highway and still only metres from the sandy white beaches of the Gold Coast, the Sanctuary is an opportunity to visit the green behind the gold. Over 1400 native birds and animals call Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary's 27 hectares of landscaped surrounds and natural bush land home. Whether its viewing the snapping jaws of freshwater crocodiles from a safe distance or a hands-on approach feeding wallabies in the open paddock, there are plenty of interactive animal experiences to enjoy.

    Visit Brisbane!

    by gunnor Written Feb 25, 2003

    Go to Brisbane, and from there take a trip with the whale-looking ship. This is certainly not every month of the year, but september-october is a good time. Fantastic scenes, when the humback-whales appears. Don't miss it!

    Noosa Heads, Australia

    Although Noosa Heads is famous for its beaches, you should take time to explore the beautiful backwaters, including the waterfront residential areas.

    When you are in Cairns, you should visit the Atherton Tablelands. This highland area has many scenic spots including the scenic Milla Milla Falls.
