Cr Pauline Young, City of Gold Coast: “Burleigh Point – need I say more?”

Missy Robinson, The Rebel Collective: “Down on the Broadwater by Charis Seafood – a great place to walk with the dog and grab an ice cream.”

Grant Brown, Mermaid Beach SLSC: “We like to head up to Mt Tamborine for an early morning walk followed by breakfast the Spice of Life Café. Otherwise, we head down to Cooly or Rainbow Bay.”
