What Did Your Suburb Used To Look Like?

The GC has changed so much!

What Did Your Suburb Used To Look Like?

The Gold Coast hasn't always been the bustling city it is today. While some would argue that we live in the 'Vegas' or 'Hollywood' of Australia, it was our tropical climate and sandy white beaches that originally got our once-little town a place on the 'must-see' map of the world. 

But before we got a casino, a handful of theme parks or even our iconic GC skyline, the Gold Coast was once a humble little town much like our brothers and sisters a few hours up or down the highway.

So what did your home look like all those years ago?
