Welcome to Surfers Paradise, stop no. 3 on my Books By The Beach Tour!
Pictures of the Surfers Paradise skyline from the Q1 Skypoint Observation Deck at dusk and night
Surfers Paradise is a suburb in the centre of the City of the Gold Coast. Colloquially known as ‘Surfers’, the suburb has many high-rise apartment buildings and a wide surf beach. The feature of the heart of the suburb is Cavil Mall, which runs through the shopping and entertainment precinct. Cavill Avenue, named after early hotel owner Jim Cavill, is one of the busiest shopping strips in Queensland, and the centre of activity for night life. One of the features of the area is the Surfers Paradise meter Maids designed to build goodwill with tourists.
Surfers Paradise is the Gold Coast’s entertainment and tourism centre and the suburb’s high-rise buildings are the best known feature of the city’s skyline. Behind me is Q1, a 322.5-meter (1,058 ft) skyscraper. It is the sixth-tallest residential tower in the world and is the tallest building in Australia and the Southern Hemisphere, and the second-tallest free-standing structure in the Southern Hemisphere, behind the Sky Tower in Auckland, New Zealand.
The short story I am sharing with you in this post is House Arrest. The audio is soft at the beginning, and the footage is a little shaky at times as it was a very windy day when I filmed this video. This is real life and raw reality out and about in the city where I live!
House Arrest tells the story of Adrienne, a young woman who goes to obsessive lengths to keep her home safe from intruders, however it is on the inside where the danger lies.
PLEASE NOTE: At the end of this video there is information about purchasing House Arrest on Amazon/Kindle. My books are not currently available on Amazon/Kindle. Instead you can download a FREE PDF version of the story for HERE: House Arrest
