It’s a great place to die…

Pyjamas in Paradise

Pyjamas in Paradise

The Pyjamas in Paradise performance at the GCAC bought back some great memories on Saturday night. Had the best time. You can book tickets here.

Songs from the 50s and 60s straight off my parents old LPs. Flashbacks to the Gold Coast’s early development when ‘big, white, towers’ were only a dream, and Paula Stafford’s bikinis where creating havoc on the beaches. Accommodation like the  iconic ‘Pink Poodle’, the Beachcomber, and Tiki Village, were popular honeymoon destinations. If you didn’t get the  reference to the real Pink Poodle on stage, that was it.

It was a shame they didn’t give the dog credits.

PS. The title is a tongue in check reference, from the performance, to the Gold Coast being a great place to retire to.


About Suzette Sayer

As part of my role as heritage consultant I am constantly on the look out for iconic forms of design and architecture. My current project is a grass roots initiative to create a Mobile Museum that captures the stories of the Gold Coast through community interactions in temporary pop-up exhibitions. The project aims to be facilitated through the Hip! (Heritage in Paradise) Mobile, a vintage style tear drop caravan equipped with a recording studio, and room for exhibition materials. So join us on this journey of discovery and help us uncover HIP! Suzette Sayer
