Runaway Photo: Different Faces of the Gold Coast

Gold Coast, the Glamorous Queensland’s City

Gold Coast, a costal city of southeastern Queensland is one of the hottest tourist destinations for both locals and international visitors. It attracts several million people all year round. But why is the Gold Coast such a special place? I had a chance to stay for a week in Broadbeach in the Gold Coast during #Room753 campaign, and certainly, I discovered a lot about this charming place. 

The day starts with a variety of colors in the sky. The sun rises with charisma. I enjoyed the sunrise everyday through my big window. The sun shines on the coast that extends 60 km. It’s a pleasant 15-25 degrees Celsius even in the winter. There are a number of attractions and activities you can do in the region including golfing, hot air ballooning, hiking, visiting Great Barrier Reef, and so on. People are mellow and laid back. And the day ends with an orange-glow sunset. It almost feels too perfect to be real. 

The whole region is glamorous with attractions and activities, but most of all, what makes Gold Coast great is the beach itself. When I went for a walk on the beach, I truly understood why people are attracted here. The sandy beaches are firm and flat, perfect for walking, running, or just enjoying the warm ocean. It’s great for surfing and various water sports and becomes one big playground for children, dogs, and adults. 

For a week, I enjoyed seeing the different faces of the Gold Coast. Here are some of the highlights of my stay.

    The Gold Coast truly is one of the more special places in the world for those of us that like modernity. The mix of that and the gorgeous beach during Golden Hour makes me so jealous that you got to experience this place … now I’ll have to go, expensive prices be darned!
