Julian Rocks Marine Reserve & Dive Site

Before visiting Byron Bay, my perception of the place was that my trip would be mainly party oriented with some beach time during the day. I arrived in the morning on a shuttle from Surfers Paradise and walked straight into a shop to ask about diving a place I had read was one of the top 10 dive sites in Australia, Julian Rocks. They quickly ushered me over to the Byron Bay Dive Centre and said a boat was leaving in a few minutes.

Gold Coast Boat Rental
Driving a rental boat through the canals of the Gold Coast

The Gold Coast is famous for being one of the premier tourist destinations in Australia.  There are so many things to do on the Gold Coast, it's impossible to do everything in one visit.  This means you have to choose wisely.  For those of you who don't know anything about the Gold Coast, it's set on a VERY long stretch of beach on one side, and an intricate system of canals on the other.  It actually has more canals than Venice.  I've been living here for the past 4 months, and my time is ending in a week, so I'm scrambling to do everything I've not managed to do yet.  This afternoon we decided to rent a boat and cruise the Gold Coast Canals, and it turned out to be one of my favorite things to do here.

Al Fresco Surfers Paradise
Al Fresco Italian Restaurant in Surfers Paradise, QLD

You've been traveling the East Coast of Australia.  You've arrived in Surfers Paradise, the most touristy city of all.  The streets are lined with kebab joints, stale pizza slices, McDonalds, and take away Chinese.  Where do you go for food?  From the heart of town, cruise down Gold Coast Highway towards the Q1 tower.  On the left hand side you'll arrive at my favorite restaurant in Surfers Paradise, Al Fresco.

Surfers Paradise in the Gold Coast of Australia is a city for tourists. Comprised of mostly bars, clubs, restaurants, hotels, and apartments, the city caters to all types of travelers. If you plan on visiting around November / December, know that the city tends to be taken over by schoolies - students on break who party non stop. This may not be the best time to visit if thats not what you're looking for, however, for some of you maybe it is?
