The Gold Coast is just an hour south of Brisbane, and with the city being so close in a country so big it would probably take up half the moon, we went for a quick day trip there.
It took us a little longer as after the journey down via train we needed a tram to take us to the beach. We found Surfers Paradise on the map and headed for it.
I love food.
From the table we had this view. You see this building here? That’s the building in the title of the post, the Q1 Tower.
This was (until 2011) the tallest residential tower in the world and currently holds the title of tallest in Australia, as well as the Southern Hemisphere.
So, we went up it.
More cool facts on this can be seen over at SkyPoint website.
Before I relaxed and wanted to show my face…
A little while later. No alcohol needed!
I decided to take shots of the view from the different stages of the day, from afternoon to sunset.
I love the shadow in the shot above. From here you can truly appreciate it and realise how much affect the buildings have on the ground below. It’s also beautiful to watch the surrounding city enter darkness and the night lights give it a second life.
And as day turned to night, we called it a day up here. And what a place to welcome in the night.
