Jewels on the Beach

Kind Squares Photo Challenge #17 ~ Queensland: One of a Kind

Destination: Surfers Paradise

Highrise towers line the iconic beachfront at the Gold Coast.

The newest addition to the area is the Jewel Tower complex, housing a five star hotel as well as luxurious private residences, shops and restaurants. It must be as impressive on the inside as it is on the outside.

This month I’m joining in every day with Becky’s October Kind Square Photo Challenge over at The Life of B. The rules are simple: most photos must be square and fit the theme word “kind”. Look for #kindasquare.

    • While I understand your feelings Jo, I really have to disagree in this instance. In the broader context of the location of these buildings, in Queensland’s second largest city, they fit perfectly. The beaches of the Gold Coast are wide and vast, and the high rise buildings do not dominate. The Gold Coast is renowned as a luxury destination and these structures have been designed with that in mind. Australia has thousands of kilometres of unspoilt and undeveloped beaches, so those looking for a quiet holiday have plenty of choices. You probably wouldn’t go to the Gold Coast for a holiday but many people do, with the understanding of what is there.
