Gold Coast, Queensland
The early bird catches the worm—or at least the perfect sunrise. For Australians, surfer culture means riding the waves when the world is quiet and it’s just you against the groggy sun (and aggressive waves, but we’ll save that for another post). Savour it along the Gold Coast, where you’ll find 75 kilometres of unadulterated sand, surf and sun. It may be home to Surfer’s Paradise, but you don’t need shaggy hair to soak it in. Best enjoyed with a Tequila Sunrise in hand, just for consistency’s sake. It’s 5:00 somewhere!
