Here I am, a dedicated addict of TA - asking, reading and posting questions and opinions on several forums that relate to our wants, needs and experiences regarding our travels. Lo and behold I have just visited, for the first time, my own 'home town' forum and have found it to be very interesting reading regarding questions and opinions regarding the GC. By no means do I have any intention of being an expert but having lived on the Gold Coast for over 25 years, I feel I can contribute to any visitors heading our way therefore if I can be of any assistance to any forum member/s (as others have been to me) please don't hesitate to ask.
One thing I will 100% 'back up' is the Sheraton Mirage in relation to 'if not the best' seafood smorgasboard buffet on the Gold Coast. Obviously a few of the guys know their stuff, we too have been regulars ourselves for many years. I am very familiar with the Northern end of the GC (yes, including Ashmore Steak & Seafood, Carrara and anything to do with theme parks not to mention 'the usual holiday stuff' and without being biased, I am happy to assist - yes, I am a parent too!)
I must say, as the fabulous GC is one of the tourist meccas of the world, I am surprised this forum is not as 'inundated' as I would've suspected. Maybe the 'MC' (yes, Mail Centre - goodness knows why) deters a few visitors.
Looking forward to being of assistance in anyway I can.
