U must definitely stay at surfer's Paradise cos Gold Coast is a pretty big area, if u end up at Broad Beach, u will practically be bored to death. Surfer's paradise is the main attraction area, where all the shops, cafes, water sports are. If im not wrong, on every thur, they have this pasar malam by the beach selling quirky & unique stuff

I can recommend the sands. it's by the beach and at surfers paradise.
I just came back from my honeymoon from gold coast I really enjoyed my trip there.
I spent a total of 4k. But I stayed in a motel instead of apt as just the two of us.

Actual value of the voucher is AUD 1500 but I'm letting go at S$1200, do PM me if you are interested!

I love brisbane, it's a beautiful place! The air is so refreshing, very good place to relax one's mind, unlike sg so fast paced.

I have visited Brisbane lots of time but I always stay in the Wings hinterland Gold Coast. It is a great place where You will get to stay in a nice friendly family home with people who like people, lot more friendly that staying in a hotel or motel room and they are very affordable.
