I had the opportunity to spend an hour at Tallebudgera Creek in the southern part of Queensland’s Gold Coast. More famous for high rise buildings, wide golden beaches and the tourist mayhem of Surfers Paradise, the few kilometres marks a significant difference in pace and mood.
Tallebudgera Creek itself has it origins in the hills of the hinterland and also has a small canal estate before its final wide expanse is squeezed under the Gold Coast Highway for its final sigh into the sea.
My visit was short, limited both by time and approaching inclement weather, which provided the opportunity to capture a different mood to the its usual sunny disposition.
