Australia, Gold Coast, Living Large

Gold Coast, Australia

Arrived at the Gold Coast after a 4 day drive from Sydney and a really great road trip with PJay.  It is approx. 11 hour drive from Sydney but we decided we wanted to see some sites along the way, therefore, a leisurely 4 nights to get there (see the blog on road trip to the Gold Coast).

This was one of our favourite areas in Australia.   The beaches were beautiful, lots to do,  even went lawn bowling.  The week  was mostly about spending time with P Jay and family as they had just moved to the area.

Our stay was at Surfers Paradise in an Air bnb at the Paradise Island Resort (a great place to stay).  Air bnb’s can be a fantastic and less expensive, alternate way to stay in places that are often much nicer than a hotel.  Usually they will have laundry machines and a full kitchen.  This air bnb was a beautiful one bedroom apt., with fantastic views and  walking distance to all the reststaurants, beaches and trains.

Much family time spent this week.
