So Much Fun !

I'm not sure there is anything like Queensland's Gold Coast. As a rather "downmarket" and fairly cheap holiday resort for Aussies in the 1960s it's rapidly grown to an international mega resort with pizazz and some rather strange developments over the decades. Surfer's Paradise Beach is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful on the planet. Sadly by 4pm it's overshadowed because of the huge apartment blocks that line the beachfront.
Many of Australia's more notorious "bikie gangs" have HQ-ed themselves there and once where there was one pub with a rather lively bear garden now night-clubs abound.
Nothing sums up Surfers Paradise more than Palazzo Versace, the uber glitzy resort where, well Versace style decor excels.
Mind you the Star Gold Casino gives it a run for their money.
But the Star doesn't play host to the participants the British mega TV hit show "I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here"and the hosts Ant and Holly Willoughby. (The actual filming takes place in a nearby Northern NSW rain forest property owned by feminist heroine Germaine Greer).
The Miss World quest just took place at Palazzo Versace so we must post photos of the glittering event.
The winner was 20-year-old beauty  Sarah Marschke, now: Miss World Australia 2019
