both are fun, but i swug low and stuck w/ the gold coast. reason being, the rumours are true: you can walk into a bar in surfer's and get hired, resume or not. so if you need $, hang close to surfer's. the trick is to get accommie near to surfers but not in it. i camped out in burleigh head -- so much fun. surf was mackin' all day long and trips down to snaps was a treat. if you need a job - stay gold. if you've got the dough, lay back and relax and go sunnie - calmer, less touristy, slightly off the backpacktrack. most packers usually stop in surfers and then head for fraser island.

oohh - and you're close to steve's Australian Zoo!

I'm a grommet stuck in the middle (brisbane) & get jealous
of the locals on both coasts. Lucky bastards get to surf before & after school & i can only go on weekends.

U cant compare the sunshine coast to the goldie. GOLD COAST RULES! I had an apartment on orchard ave in surfers for a few months nd it was the best time of my life. Surf isnt the best there but its still good and if u have a car u can get to some top quality breaks not too far down the coast. Enjoy it but take plenty of cash tho -Ij- pommie surfer - goldcoaster wannabe. I will be back!!
