Selfie from Australia’s Highest External Building Climb

This is the era of the selfie rage!! The rage is so much that the selfie sticks are one of the most used travel accessories these days. Personally, I don’t use a selfie stick, but have been very much smitten by the selfie mania. But, I was pleasantly surprised when I saw that I had no selfie shots on my blog as I had been sharing it only across my various social channels. So, here goes the blog’s first selfie shot from the SkyPoint Climb, Australia’s highest external building climb. At approximately 270m from the ground and with just a body harness and steel cable for support, this climb is a serious adrenaline rush. Lasting 90 minutes, it offers 360 degree views of the sensationally picturesque Gold coast that has a long beach line, fantastic surf and innumerable canal system. From the top of SkyPoint Q1, you can also see Gold Coast’s skyline, the far way hinterland and the mountains beyond.

This selfie was taken at the very top where you could lean down and see cars as toys and people as ants. If you love adventure, love sensationally beautiful aerial views and if you want to do something out of the ordinary, the SkyPoint climb is for you. A detailed story on my experience will follow soon. Do stay tuned for more SkyPoint, Gold Coast and Australia stories.
