Get yourself to Sea World theme park

Oh and drive down to the Gold Coast for a few days. Only a few hours away

The most beautiful beaches I have ever seen are at the Gold Coast

I found a lovely deserted beach there, with a creek running parallel to the sea. Walking back from the sea towards the creek, a huge sign 'Warning! Estuarine Crocodiles inhabit this creek' . So that's why it was deserted......
