Gold Coast by night, 270m up

The Gympie Times - - ESCAPE -

FOR the first time, ad­ven­ture-seek­ers can see a night-time spec­ta­cle from the high­est van­tage point on the Gold Coast.

SkyPoint, at the top of the Q1 build­ing in Surfers Par­adise, one of Aus­tralia’s tallest res­i­den­tial build­ings, launched night climbs yes­ter­day – just in time for the Queens­land school hol­i­days.

Climbers will reach a height of 270m above sea level, as­cend­ing and de­scend­ing a to­tal of 298 stairs in the dark, while ad­mir­ing the views.

Ex­pe­ri­enced climb lead­ers will take climbers on the 90-minute jour­ney from Aus­tralia’s only beach­side ob­ser­va­tion deck – SkyPoint – to the summit where they will en­joy un­in­ter­rupted 360-de­gree views of the Gold Coast in the open air.

SkyPoint ex­ec­u­tive gen­eral man­ager Paul Cal­lan­der said the night climbs were a unique way to see the Gold Coast af­ter the sun goes down with a lit­tle adren­a­line rush added in.

He said the night climb was a great way for to ex­pe­ri­ence the Gold Coast. The night climbs will be held ev­ery day dur­ing the Queens­land school hol­i­days.
