I always hear such good things about Australia. The beaches are beautiful, the people are friendly, and there are plenty of places to explore. One good place to visit is the Gold Coast.
The Gold Coast is a good size city (about 540,000 people) along the east coast of Australia in the state of Queensland. There is plenty to do in and around Gold Coast including surfing, sunbathing, or swimming at a beautiful beach, heading out on a whale watching expedition, or exploring the nearby rainforest or vineyards. Whatever you choose, it's sure to be a good time with all that beautiful weather!
