my accommodation has refused to cancel my booking without a hefty penalty - i am looking for dates when i can get away for 10-14 days - because it takes a couple of days to get there and another 2 to drive home again ..
easter/school holidays have never been a time i choose to be on the road, and the gold coast is not anywhere near my top destinations ... at any time really ...
although not at the $1000-2000 per night range i first encountered, it is still not a cheap place i found - because we are travelling with the crazy dog - this place is not at all cheap
who'd have thought that back in december/january, we need a crystal ball
if others are still travelling up there, maybe we'll still go in april
edit to add - this question is no longer relevant as qld closes its borders...
