Which sub­urb do you call home? Palm Beach

What makes that sub­urb the best on the GC? So many things… The best stretch of beach be­tween Burleigh and Cur­rumbin for a surf/dog walk/early morn­ing sun­rise swim. Amaz­ing cafés, restau­rants and bars pro­vid­ing great qual­ity prod­uct and ser­vice. Awe­some friendly peo­ple that say good morn­ing with a real smile!

Fave Gold Coast ca­sual din­ing lo­ca­tion? What’s on the menu? We are so spoilt for choice right now… Good time to be a Gold Coaster! Some of our favourites are Glenelg Public House for steak, Etsu for Ja­pa­nese, Mex­i­cali for Mex­i­can and Gemellini for Ital­ian. Or for some­thing dif­fer­ent, you should def­i­nitely try out Rab­bath in Burleigh for mid­dle East­ern food done re­ally well.

You’re plan­ning a fun, lo­cal night out with your mates? Which three lo­ca­tions top your list and why? We start at Rick Shores (as the sun goes down) with a cou­ple of cock­tails and a bug roll or three. Then move to 8th Ave Ter­race for din­ner ac­com­pa­nied by some great wines. Then head to The Scot­tish Prince for live mu­sic, af­ter din­ner cock­tails and their in­sane whisky se­lec­tion.

Best lo­cal spot for fam­ily hangs and why? Burleigh Hill on a Sun­day af­ter­noon with a pic­nic, es­pe­cially when the swell is up, is a pretty magic place. Sit­ting look­ing over the ocean to Surfers Par­adise while the waves role through and peo­ple all hang­ing out has a re­ally nice vibe.

Com­plete this sen­tence: Only a Gold Coast lo­cal knows... That feel­ing when the storm rolls in at about 5pm, sit­ting by the win­dow or on a bal­cony, open­ing a bot­tle of wine, putting the mu­sic on and watch­ing the amaz­ing show that Mother Na­ture is about to put on!
