What do I love about this area I call home? Well there is so much, but I will just take you on a tour and show you a few things that are within a one kilometre of my house. A big bonus is that this area is all flat so I can ride my bike down to the beach.
The Gold Coast is all about sun, sea and sand
Surfers travel from around the world to experience the iconic surf breaks and major surfing competitions that are held here.
But I prefer to sit and watch. In the distance Burleigh Heads National Park rises, seemingly out of the ocean. How lucky to have this natural beauty on our doorstep.
Tracks wander through the dappled shade along the ocean and then up and over the top giving views along the coast.
After all the activity time to explore James Street, the vibrant, buzzing main shopping street of Burleigh Heads. It is a mecca of boutique shops of all kinds and the café culture is renowned.
Whatever type of food you prefer I’m sure you can find it here. From just a coffee to a main meal.
My favourite is this Govindas. With organic vegetables sourced from the Hare Krishna farm, it is a delicious, tasty and reasonably priced vegetarian meal.
I live in one of Australia’s major tourist areas and Surfers Paradise is about 20 kilometres further north along the coast. That is the area that most people have heard of when you say Gold Coast and it attracts tourists of all kinds from around the world. But Burleigh is not so well known, more of a local sort of place and I like it like that.
This week for the WP photo challenge Krista has asked us to share with you photos of where we live. I hope you enjoyed this short visit with me.
