Fear of Heights

Here’s me looking out of the 77th floor of the Q1 Tower in the Gold Coast, hiding my fear of heights that always comes out during the first few minutes of such an elevator ride.

Funnily enough, our day trip to the Gold Coast mainly consisted of being inside this building. Seriously. We went up after a great lunch and my sister decided that she wanted to do the Sky Point Climb at sunset, an outside climb that takes you to the very point of the tower. Terrifying. 

So 99% of the photos I will post from this trip will be from this building, which works I guess because I can see 99% of the city from here. 

See you all soon!

    1. Haha, well I am fine in planes, so maybe my fear is falling too! I am always hesitant to go to the window at first, but it eventually becomes comfortable. I wish I could be comfortable like you knowing that logically I am not in actual danger with the safety measures in place, but it isn’t that easy for me!

    1. Thankfully this wasn’t a glass lift, because if it was I do not think I could have done it. Not a fan! Although the view would of course be amazing. I do feel having an elevator that you can’t see out of helps at this height because it eases you into the height, because the building is so big you can stay in the middle and walk to the windows in your own time. This helps me a lot!


    1. I never get it in my feet, only my palms! You might be okay here as the elevator is in the middle of the building and there is a lot of space away from the windows… My mum did very well and she hates heights!

    1. Does it make a difference if it is in a building compared to say a steep hill outside or just naturally challenging terrain? As this building caters for those that require wheelchairs/scooters.

  1. When we used to visit my grandmother at Southport in the 1950s, there was one highrise building in Surfers Paradise. The Currumbin Bird Sanctuary was always a favourite to visit, as well as a swim in the surf! πŸ™‚

    1. My sister told me about this building during her tour! She also pointed it out to me in the photos I have taken. It is great that you remember it and were there when the city was not so high-rise. I will add it to my post πŸ™‚
