We are so fortunate for the beauty of our city.
The Gold Coast is cradled spaciously between the vast open span of the Pacific Ocean and the lush green hinterland, with thousands of rivers, lakes and canals in between. There’s plenty of places for scenic photos of the Coastline and Hinterland. We reckon we’ve been to most and have compiled our Top 3 Best spots for viewing the Gold Coast.
1. Q1 Skypoint Observation Deck
The Q1 sits a couple of hundred yards in from the Surfers Paradise shoreline. The Observation Deck provides 360 degree views of the Gold Coast and surrounding hinterland. You can even enjoy breakfast, dining or drinks at the Seventy7 Cafe & Bar while taking in the breathtaking views. If you’re game, you may want to try the SkyPoint Climb for the most incredible Gold Coast viewing experience. We don’t want to give too much away, because words and pictures won’t do any justice to the experience itself.

2. The Panorama
The Panorama is the beautiful natural outlook from Tallai over the city towards the Pacific Ocean. Tha Panorama is a circuit that begins and ends from Worongary Road (about a 2-minute drive from the Mudgeeraba Road end). It offers some of the best sweeping views from several vantage points across the mountain. This is an unofficial viewing area, so please be mindful of local residents.

3. Elephant Rock, Currumbin
Sitting next to Currumbin Surf Club is Elephant Rock. Atop of the rock is a viewing platform. Yes, this is also the platform for the popular Currumbin Anzac Day Dawn Service. Elephant Rock isn’t overly high, yet is higher from on top than it appears from below. It provides one of the best views south towards Tweed Heads and up north to the Surfers Paradise skyline. It’s also a cool place to watch the planes coming in to land at the Gold Coast Airport too.
