Re: Gold coast storm

We are about to move house to an apartment with sea views, and I told the kids I couldn't wait for the first thunder and lightening storm so I could watch it from the balcony!

Re: Why so many "gated communities"??

Someone else mentioned, the body corporate! If you are in a good one with good facilities it will be high and by laws will be annoying! Very good for renting, I wouldn't own one personally.

Re: South Gold Coast - good areas!

Have you tried looking at maps.google.com.au and then doing the satellite view or the even the street views now.

Re: A couple of days in Brisbane / Gold Coast - Places to stay...?

I'm biased - I love Australia - I have lived in Sydney, Melbourne and the Gold Coast. I personally think it would be hard not to find something to like here!

Re: A couple of days in Brisbane / Gold Coast - Places to stay...?

That's great - you do realise it will be quite hot and steamy in Qld! I personally love the heat, but coming from the UK winter you may be quite blown away by it... it does tend to get less humid as...

Re: A couple of days in Brisbane / Gold Coast - Places to stay...?

Hi,
My recommendation for an overnight stop would be to get to Coffs or Port Macquarie on the way down to Sydney because they are closer to halfway! That's how I would see it. But Byron could be a...

Debs, Thanks for pointing out Parkwood, cannot believe I did not mention that one as it is so close to Griffith! I guess the other option is Molendinar but not sure how many one or two bed places...

Re: Gold coast rentals

Totally agree about renting somewhere site unseen - you can get holiday rentals on realestate.com.au they have a section. Plus when you get here there are places in www.seqrents.com.au that are not...

When we first arrived here we rented in Arundel which is a bit closer than Pacific Pines, if distance is a concern. It was a quick 12 minute run to the Hospital. We had a dog, which is also hard to...

Re: gold coast resorts??

Hi,
I would say it depends upon what you are looking for.

Surfers is busy and touristy. Broadbeach is a bit more classy, has great restaurants, but less attractions close by - I think you need to...

Re: NSW / QLD House Prices?

It is so hard to say, as house prices vary from suburb to suburb and even within suburbs depending upon the type of property.
