Beyond Surfer’s Paradise, Gold Coast – Mt Tamborine

25 Aug

Surfer’s Paradise, Gold Coast

While on the subject of Australia, let’s focus on another location – Surfer’s Paradise, Gold Coast in Queensland.

Australia's Gold Coast

White sandy beach of Surfer's Paradise, Gold Coast

Yup, Surfer’s Paradise is world famous with such a beautiful beach and the surfs fantastic for windsurfing. But let’s go beyond the theme parks and the beach. Let’s go up to the mountains – Mt Tamborine precisely.

Mt Tamborine signboard

My internet friend, who Iived in Brisbane, picked me up from my hotel and drove to Mt Tamborine. While we stopped to read this signboard, a guy was getting his paraflight gear ready. So I snapped some pictures.

A few minutes later and off he flew!


Paragliding over Mt Tamborine

It was a long winding road to and off the mountain but well worth the visit. There are shops here for food and souvenirs. Have a look if you are here. Here is a landscape visage of Mt Tamborine.

So if you are on holiday in Gold Coast, leave the beach for a few days and explore the surroundings. You won’t regret it.

Wish you are here!
