Hello from Texas.
My wife and I are visiting New Zealand then taking a cruise that ends in Sydney. We are staying 10 more days, and would like your input on how to spend the rest of our trip. We know we want to see the Great Barrier Reef for 3-4 days and maybe visit an island if it is not to expensive. Your thoughts pleas.

How are the famous Surfers Paradise Meter Maids doing? Just curious.
My wife and I are coming to Australia (including five days in Surfers Paradise) next February. What are the names and contact information for running clubs in the area? Thank you.
My wife and I are coming from the United States to Australia in February, 2013. We will spend much of that trip at Surfers Paradise. Where are the best shopping malls in and around Surfers Paradise? We are especially interested in souvenirs, surf sandals, swimsuits (mens and womens) and also surf shops.
I'm flying into the gold coast with my girlfriend for 7 nights. the though/possibility of cockroahes is freaking my girlfriend out.
Right now we're pencilled in for the 'foreshore apartments' which is in mermaid beach. great price, decent enough location (we'll have a car) but after reading 1 newly posted horror review, I'm having second thoughts.
Can anyone suggest somewhere either in surfers or surrounding that is really clean! has to be under200, foreshore is actually100 per night on a 7night deal but I know we'll need to spend more if we go elsewhere.
We are going to Australia in July 09 for about a week and have picked Surfers Paradise/Gold Coast/Brisbane to see.
Does anyone recommend staying in one of these places more than the other? We want to see them all but not sure which is the best. We are not wild party goers etc but enjoy good food and having a few beers/wine, but do want to see the where the wild party goers go in Surfers as well ;o) We also love seeing live bands.
Top on our list while there would be:
1. To hug a koala/see wildlife - any wildlife sanctuaries anyone recommends?
2. Go to Sea World and Movie World.
3. See Surfers Paradise.
4. See Brisbane and all its places of interest.
5. Stay somewhere in the middle of all of this so its easy to get around to all of the above and get to and from Brisbane Airport without too much hassle ;o)
This site is such a cool site and I can't be grateful enough for all the responses I've had in the past in helping planning a . So thanks in advance for responses I might get for this.

My girlfriend and i are visiting surfers from Adelaide in January. I was just wondering what are some of the things I must see and or do while on the Gold Coast. Apart from the obvious dream world and the rest of the parks what else is in or near the Gold Coast that I must see.
Also we are planning to go out and have some drinks a few times while we are there. What are some of the good pubs and clubs that we should visit. Im sure there are heaps I would just like to know which are considered to be the best or must see.
Thanks for any info.
I am thinking about spending 2days 3nights in mid June 2008 in the Surfers Paradise area. I am retired but am now having second thoughts about staying due to the teenagers, families with young children and the "party mood" that seems to surround the area. Are there any places in the area that would be more for older, or retired adults rather than younger? The thought of the ocean, and swimming in the ocean is the reason I would be going to the area.
Hi, my husband, 2 teenagers and I are travelling to Brisbane for 6 days, staying in Surfers Paradise (Crowne Plaza). We were thinking of hiring a car from the aiport to see the sights of the area. Is hiring from the airport the best way or is their a cheaper alternative or more choice in Surfers. Also we will be getting to the Gold Coast the last week of August, what will the weather be like so I know what to pack? Thanks for your help. Kaz, Manchester UK
I'm looking at going to the Hard Rock Cafe for a birthday dinner, just wondering if anyone could tell me if the prices are descent ..or if they are just totally way out there ... ?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated :)
I was wondering if anyone had any ideas for me. I am 22 years old and three of my friends and I are planning to travel/live in surfers paradise from Sept 07-Feb 08. We really have no clue how to get started as far as living accomodations go. Does anyone know of some CHEAP apartments/houses that are available for that time frame? We would only need a two bedroom place (we are very flexible though). Please, please, please let me know if you have any info!
Hi, I am going to surfers paradise on the Gold Coast with my husband and 15 year old son very soon, and was wondering if anyone knows whether you can arrange a trip to Austrailia Zoo from there or whether it would be better for arrange it direct on the Austrailia Zoo website. Also may I ask, which are the best theme parks for 'white knuckly rides' for my son
Hello. Does anybody know of cheap accomodation possibilities in surfers paradise? Plus how expensive are the entrance fees for clubs(/bars) there?
Staying in Brisbane, would it make sense to stay in surfers paradise for a week or so or is it fairly easy/comfortable to get there by train or bus from brisbane? (If so what are the fees, etc.?)
My 2006 OZ vacatation is fast approaching, I am looking to see if anyone knows of good reasonable priced Hotel/Motel, accomadation in Surfers Paradise, around early February 2006. This is my first visit to OZ, myself and my friend, touring up from Sydney to Cairns?
