Abstract

Extract:
The 3 km of golden beach that lap the shores of Surfers Paradise have become synonymous with urban beaches worldwide. Its name was invented, in a stroke of marketing genius, by Jim Cavill who proposed the name 'Surfers Paradise' and pipped the previous preferred title of 'Sea Glint' for this beachside hideaway. Jim Cavill also built the first hotel in Surfers Paradise, in 1933, and subsequently his Surfers Paradise Zoo. However, it was not until thel ate 1950s and through the 1960s that the ribbon development of the Gold Coast increased rapidly. Many motels, guesthouses and holiday homes were built during this period, an era of expansion that substantially shaped today's Gold Coast. While some of the original buildings remain (e.g. bathing pavilions, original motels and the high-rise building, Kinkabool), many have been demolished. For example, many of the post-war Gold Coast motels (motor-hotels) have been demolished.
