Gold Coast Villages: Coolangatta

We just love how all the little villages of the Gold Coast have their own distinct personalities. So we thought we’d check in with you folks and find out just where you love to stop and shop when you’re pottering around your local precinct.

This month we asked you about your fave places in the stunning and ‘old Gold Coast’ surrounds of Cooly:
