City Visit: Surfers’ Paradise, Australia – Part I

We left the hotel with a day at the beach. It was winter so it wasn’t all too hot, despite being in the very comfortable mid twenties Celcius. The neighborhood around the hotels are mostly high rises and glamourous residences. With crystal blue skies, it was a nice place to spend some time.

After spending the afternoon at the beach, we headed down into main street of Surfers’ Paradise for a wander around town. It was about a 10 minute walk from the hotel. We eventually stopped for some nachos and a Victoria Bitter at Surfer’s Paradise version of an Irish Bar on the pedestrian Cavill Ave.

Along with a walk back to the hotel as the sun set via the Hard Rock Café Surfers Paradise where I picked up a T-Shirt for WT73jr.

A very relaxing day in paradise…
