I love Main Beach on Queensland’s Gold Coast. I grew up there and even though it has changed considerably since I was a child, it is a place I will adore forever.
I think the best time to be at the beach is sunrise.
It is great to have the beach to yourself (almost) for a while.
I have been a beachcomber all my life. I love to see what has been washed up by the waves.
As the day warms up people arrive to swim, surf or just stroll along the white sand.
Highrise buildings keep growing beside the beach at Surfers Paradise, but the beach is still wonderful.
Late afternoon is another great time to walk beside the water.
Who can resist moonlight on the water?
