Right in the heart of the Gold Coast, is Queensland’s famous Surfers Paradise. Affectionately known worldwide as the glitter strip – it is aptly named as it simply glitters with beauty by day and sparkling party atmosphere by night. As a favourite and popular holiday destination, there are endless things to do in Surfers Paradise. As a local, one of my favourite things to do, is to head out on a hot sunny day and take a nice long walk on the beach. Surfers Paradise’s main street, Cavil Avenue will take you to the heart of the beach, where the sky scrapers meet the sand. From there, I can head north to Main Beach or I can head south where the shoreline will take me towards Broadbeach and beyond. The sand is golden, the air is crisp and the sky and water are the most magnificent shade of blue. I always end my walk with a dip in the ocean to cool off.
