We’re about wan­der­lust… The spirit of ad­ven­ture… The thrill of the chase… The unbeaten path. We’re about show­cas­ing the best of the coast, the hotspots that lo­cals know best. How won­der­ful is our Gold Coast in win­ter?! It's not around for long, so us lo­cals em­brace the chill and a few other things we can't nor­mally, year round, on the Goldie. For in­stance, I adore the way the sea seems to sparkle more in the win­ter sun­shine and how the sun­sets light up the sky with a rich, rosy colour pal­let. We may not be in our biki­nis at the beach, but we still get the sand be­tween our toes and en­joy count­ing whales that are mi­grat­ing past. In the win­ter, you can savour a cof­fee and a sweet treat al­fresco when you get your daily caf­feine fix. And who doesn't love snug­gling un­der a pa­tio heater for ta­pas and a red wine on a win­ter af­ter­noon with friends? End of fi­nan­cial year sales are in full swing so it's also the best time to grab a bar­gain and maybe even a new win­ter style? Win­ter is also one of my favourite times of the year to ad­ven­ture into the hinterland and get a dose of na­ture. Yes it's chilly, but you sim­ply rug up, en­joy a tea and scone pit stop as you drive up Spring­brook or Tam­borine Moun­tains, or take a spin into the west­ern ranges for the day. Read on for ideas on where you can scout around on the Gold Coast (and be­yond) this win­ter. Kee­ley O'con­nor
