There really is nothing nicer than winter sunshine on the Gold Coast and believe me we get more than our fair share of these types of days. It is an ideal opportunity to enjoy physical exercise without the excessive heat and humidity that we experience during the long summer months.
It is true that sometimes what is right in our backyard we are completely oblivious to. For example I never knew that this fabulous local natural attraction called Killarney Glen even existed until a few months ago.
Day trips out of the Gold Coast in sunny Queensland are plentiful. We are spoilt for choice with quirky little surfing hotspots, family seaside villages on ocean estuaries, the lush green cauldron, mountain vistas, thundering waterfalls, heritage-listed rainforests, farmgate produce and vineyards.
