Coolangatta Gold Coast Queensland Australia

After crossing the New South Wales border into Queensland is Coolangatta, 100 kilometres, 62.5 miles south of Brisbane. The border between New South Wales and Queensland is so similar that people pass from one state to the next barely knowing they are doing so. Some of the best surf and least crowded beaches are found in Coolangatta, population 3511. The township is set a block back from the beach and its buildings are better spaced than the rest of the Gold Coast. There is a pleasant ambience that is reminiscent of the small-town seaside life of the early 1960s.

Point Danger

One of the places recorded by Captain Cook is Point Danger, aptly named, and later became the site of a lighthouse - now a memorial to Cook. It was the first lighthouse in the world to experiment with laser technology but the experiment was unsuccessful and it returned to the more conventional mirrors, magnifying glass and powerful electric lamps.
