Surfers Paradise..Gold Coast Australia

The most beautiful beach in the world in my opinion….I love the beaches of the Gold Coast.

Here is a slideshow of the view of the Gold Coast from the 77th floor of Q1 which was until recently the tallest residential building in the world. It is now the 5th in the world….

Q1 (meaning Queensland Number One is a skyscraper located in Surfers Paradise, on the Gold Coast.

It lost its title as the world’s tallest residential tower to the 348 metre building The Marina Torch in Dubai on 29 April 2011

. As of May 2012 it is the fifth tallest such building. Q1 is the tallest building in Australia and the Southern Hemisphere[3] when measured to the top of its spire (second tallest building behind Eureka Tower in Melbourne, when measured to roof and highest habitable floor) and the second-tallest free-standing structure in the Southern Hemisphere, behind Auckland‘s Sky Tower. It opened in November 2005.

The landmark building was recognised as one of Queensland’s icons during the state’s 150th birthday celebrations. Q1 has been identified as a potential terrorism target for the region. For a short period of time, an apartment in the building, which was bought for A$9 million by a Japanese restaurateur, was the most expensive ever paid for in Queensland

SkyPoint, formerly known as QDeck, is an observation deck at levels 77 and 78. It is Australia’s only beachside observation deck and has room enough for 400 people. It towers 230 metres above the Surfers Paradise beach, giving viewers a 360 degree view of Brisbane to the north, the Gold Coast Hinterland to the west, Byron Bay to the south and the Pacific Ocean to the east. The express elevator to the observation deck travels the 77 floors in 43 seconds
