Quest of Finding Gold at the Coast for the Wizard of OZ

Hey everyone,


I just got back from a holiday with my best friend in Gold Coast, Australia. We also spent a day in Brisbane.

We arrived at Coolangatta Airport and from there we bought a freedom ticket which consisted of a to & from airport shuttle as well as a 7-day unlimited pass of the public bus. It was AUD113. The public bus service here has schedule, so you may plan your journey to save time
We stayed at Suntower Apartment, Surfers Paradise. It was only a few steps from the beach.




A few of the shopping centres that you should go to shop till you drop
there. You should also go to Australia Fair & Pacific Fair


We bought our tickets to the theme parks here. Saved the hassle of queueing for the tickets at the theme parks. You can also get discounts here.





We went to Movie World. The ticket was AUD70. It was awesome! Here are some of the pictures of me with the Super Heroes & other characters





We bought an unlimited entry ticket to the Dreamworld and it was AUD 70. Hence, we went there twice. The ticket is still valid until 30 June 2010. Anybody?



Not to forget, Hard Rock Cafe, Surfers Paradise


We also went to Brisbane for a day. We took a train from Helensvale Station to Central. The bus to Helensvale Station as well as the train to Central took us about a 2 hour journey. The off-peak daily ticket was AUD16.20 that would enable you to ride the bus and ferry in Brisbane. However, you can't use the ticket during the peak hour which is from 3.30-7 p.m. The peak daily ticket would have costed you more.

Don't ask me whether it was a fun holiday or not. Can you actually compare working to a holiday? I'm looking forward to go to my sis's graduation in June. Hope my leave will be approved. If it happens, I'll tell you about the trip alright? Hope this entry may give you a glimpse of what Gold Coast & Brisbane's like & assist you in planning your future trip.
XOXO :P
