Hey Wil, I'm born and bred in Brisbane and have lived down at the Gold Coast as well. Although it's not as exciting as Melbourne (one of my favourite cities in the world), there are some memorable places to visit. In Brisbane: - Southbank is nice to wander through. It links up with the Art Gallery, Museum and Gallery of Modern Art (which I highly recommend) - Take a ferry or Citycat around the River. It's a cheap experience but very relaxing - For a nightlife experience, the Valley is the place to go (but it gets a bit rowdy - this comment is coming from a 41 year old mind you!) - The city centre is nice during the day for all your shopping needs, but tends to get a little seedy at night, so be careful. Best coffee - Aromas. - Park Road at Milton is also kinda nice, but West End at night has a real vibe. Try The Three Monkeys for a meal or coffee - a real experience. At the Gold Coast: - A trip up to Tamborine Mountain really is delightful, like everyone else is saying. Great natural beauty, nice village atmosphere and also plenty of boutique wineries. Thoroughly recommended. - Go and have a look at Surfers Paradise, but it's not really a memorable experience. The Mall is getting redeveloped at the moment, so it's pretty messy. - Broadbeach has some nice restaurants and it's literally a stone's throw from the Convention Centre. You can either walk or get the monorail over. - Head down to the "Spit" area - Marina Mirage for shopping (and Max Brenner chocolate bar - yummy), fish and chips at "Peters" and go to the end for a nice walk along the jetty. Hope that helps - trying to get to Supanova on Saturday, but always happy to play tour guide if you need one (I've learnt how to unlock the chain around my ankle at my accounting firm!). Enjoy our beautiful country and our beautiful people!
