Gold Coast City is the last city before the State of New South Wales. The Gold Coast has spectacular beaches and is a major tourist destination.

Light tower

I am taking a "holiday" from Gold Coast City daily photo to devote more time to my other blogs. Thanks for anybody who stopped by and had a look, and a special thanks to those who left comments. I will put a message on Brisbane Daily Photo when this one is back up again.

Peace and long life.

Pelicans taking off and in flight

In the background to the right is Sea World, and to the left is Sea World Nara Resort.

Flying free

I love how close the wing gets to the water.

Ready for take-off

It was facinating to watch these pelicans. A few of them would fly a little further up the sand bar and when they got there, the few up there would take off. Those in the air would look for fish and then land in the main group where the cycle would continue.

Peace on Earth and an end to Terrorism.

Each to their own

Some come to the Gold Coast to relax, some to enjoy the sun at the beack. Others come to party and some to shop and enjoy the sights. And then there are the ones who just love to go full throttle over the water.

A meeting place for the birds

This looks like an exclusive resort for seagulls only. Notice the guard seagull in the bottom right hand corner.

I noticed this boat wreck when I had my camera on zoom and I hope to visit it one day.

Lonely boat

Just Chillin'

This is a house boat that has been here for a while. The name of it is "Just Chillin".

I wonder if when you woke up after getting drunk, that the movement of the house would make you feel normal, not dizzy like some people would be.

Speeding through the water way

A day of boating and fishing is many a man's dream.

In answer to a previous question about the tree with the colourful bird in it - The yellow flowers are called the bottle brush. They are flowers and the tree does bear fruit near the flowers.

A seagulls day out

When the weather warms up, it would be very common to see humans utilizing the beach. During the colder times, the seagulls get to have their days out to sit on the beach, play in the water and have lunch by the waters edge.

To keep the sand in

This is here to stop the sand on the beach flowing away. If you see one of my previous photos, you will see the sand curve and build up where this meets the beach.

Nice view

Is this guy following me

I seem to get a pelican quite close to me in each of my three blogs. There was one in Brisbane Daily Photo (Forest Lake Series) and now at the Gold Coast.

I wonder where in Logan I might find a pelican. I don't think I will though.

A colorful visitor

As I was taking a picture of this tree (I don't know what type it is), this bird flew into the photo to have his lunch. The rainbow lorikeet is certainly a beautiful bird.

Enjoying the beach

A couple taking a walk along the beach while their dog plays all around them. This is the type of lifestyle that people live here for.

Vital Communication

Communication is vital for the co-ordination and effectivness of the coast guard and rescue service. Here is the communication tower which looks very complex. If you have seen Las Vegas Daily photo, you will recognise the objects near the top of the tower.

Tuesday, August 08, 2006


This is the base of operations for the sea rescue division. The bright yellow/orange boats stand out to see them more clearly so people know help is at hand.

Around the other side

I just love these pictures. In this park there use to be a real train engine that had been made safe to climb all over. It was a fond childhood memory.

The train over time started to rust and was closed for repairs. It was repaired and then it just disappeared (except in the minds of many adults who played on it as kids).

Wall art

The wall art on this toilet block is very intricate and well done. It's a pity it was put on a toilet block as it makes spending time admiring it make you look weird.

I took another picture around the back, but I just didn't feel right taking the photo around the female side.
