The beaches here have been voted the best in the world. People from all over the globe flock here to sample the relaxed and laid back style that Australians do best.
This is the main tourist destination for the Southern Hemisphere and has theme parks, golf courses, first class restaurants plus everything else you would expect from a top holiday resort. This area has an influx of residents at the rate of 50 per day which has led to an undersupply of good quality property.
Several high class developments are underway here including Q1 which is going to be the highest residential building in the world, reaching the same dizzy heights as The Empire State building in New York. Rising 322.5 metres and 80 levels of luxury living, set amongst almost 1 hectare of tropical landscaped gardens with waterfalls, lagoons and resort facilities.
There are lots more plans for the area which will enhance the vicinity. The proposed monorail system will have stations right along the Boulevard. The Surfers Paradise Boulevard will be built to the western side over the northbound highway to the main river. This is where the new terminal will be for day cruise ships and pleasure craft, providing tours around the beautiful canals and waterways of the Gold Coast.
