I found myself here multiple time in the lead up to the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast spending my lunch breaks here. Beautiful warm sunny days, enjoying the view and watching the waves roll in.

Love mucking around at the monument, crossing the border between NSW & QLD in one step. Great view of the ocean, north to the QLD skyline & south to NSW. Then down to Messina for sorbet - great afternoon!
