Gold Coast Getaway

This week we decided to turn Melbourne Cup Day into a long weekend – I mean, who has a public holiday on a Tuesday anyways?! So we jetted off to the Gold Coast for four days of sun, sand and adventure. We couldn’t believe it had been 4 years since our last visit, so we were well overdue! We have already done the theme parks and such before, so decided to give them a miss in favour of exploring the Hinterlands.

Our flight in was super early last Saturday, meaning we arrived in Coolangatta at like 7 in the morning! We pretty much headed straight for Mount Tamborine. Wow. Just wow. We went on the Rainforest Skywalk, with its platforms high up in the trees; fell in love with Gallery Walk – especially the German Cuckoo Clock shop; and took to a couple of the National Park walks as well.

And that was just day one!

During our mini-getaway we also had to see what was new in Surfers Paradise – quite a bit, actually – where we stumbled into some of these guys. I have to admit I didn’t recognise them right away and when I did I got a little starstruck, watching from a distance while they posed with braver fans than I. #facepalm

Every morning we got up early and walked around Coolangatta, where we were staying. The days were warm and sunny and the nights relaxing and carefree. We love the GC!

Enough chat, here are some pics:
