Fav place in GC is the Surfer’s Paradise Esplanade on the foreshore, because of its wonderful fusion of the city with nature.

I came to the GC because my son and daughter came here to live.
What does your story convey about the Gold Coast?

I always try to have an entry in the Short Story, Poetry and Essay competitions run
