Wake up late (sounds good so far, doesn’t it?) and saunter to the pristine beach at the Kurrawa Surf and Life Saving Club for a long and relaxed breakfast on their beach balcony. We’ll hang around, ogling at the semi nude sun worshippers, counting the waves and snickering at those who foolishly decided to drive here and miss all this! Bring your swimmers and a towel. At some point we’ll think of something else to do that’s not quite as hectic as we have to preserve our strength for tonight's BBQ. It’s all go on the Gold Coast.
BBQ at the Pool. Wander downstairs in your swimmers to the spectacular, Grecian inspired pool to catch the sunset and enjoy a drink or three before the Aussie barbie with the rest of the crowd that drove here.

Afterwards we’ll visit the lighthouse on the edge of Australia and admire the nimble mountain goats before heading back.
