    The Danger Corner is located at the southern end of the Gold Coast, at the junction of Queensland and New South Wales. Captain Cook came here when he landed on the Australian mainland for the second time, named after two ships damaged by too many reefs. During the voyage, in order to avoid the reefs, a steering of nearly 90 degrees was ordered to avoid the sinking of the ship. Therefore, there is the name of the dangerous angle. It's a beautiful place at the junction of Australia's Golden Coast City and Sydney.

    Point Danger's pictures were mostly taken in the morning and the scenery was beautiful. But at night, you can see the whole sky is full of stars. If you haven't planned a trip, you can come and lie on the grass and enjoy the stars (even in winter).

    It's very easy for people with good scenery to walk by the sea! It's convenient to eat and drink coffee around!

    When Captain Cook landed on the Australian mainland for the second time, he ordered a sharp turn of nearly 90 degrees to avoid the sinking of the ship in order to avoid the reef, so the danger angle was named. Cook's Monument and lighthouse are built on the dangerous corner. The wind and waves are very big. Standing on the hill, you can see the snow-white waves which are stirring up in the distance. Layers of snow-white waves rush up to the rocks on the shore from far to near, causing huge waves.

    It was here that Captain Cook, the father of Australia, landed in Australia. It was estimated that Old Cook thought it was dangerous, so he called it Danger Corner. A memorial to Captain Cook has also been built here. In fact, Kulungata Beach is the real golden coast surfer paradise! Many local surfers are playing here.

    The coast is under the cliff, where the waves are large and regular, and there are more people surfing. They lie on the surfboard and float in the sea waiting for the waves. Once the waves come, they stand up and play in the waves. That kind of fight, the joy of surfing success after failures, must be very exciting and happy. Cliffs are green trees and lawns, but also sitting a pile of leisure people, enjoying the sunshine, enjoying the sea breeze.

    Standing on the shore, facing the whirring sea breeze, listening to the roar of the waves, I fantasized that I had traveled through N hundred years to be the wise and brave Captain Jack.

    Danger Corner is located at the southern end of the Gold Coast, at the junction of Queensland and New South Wales. In May 1770, when Captain Cook was sailing through the area, he ordered a sharp turn of nearly 90 degrees to avoid the sinking of the ship in order to avoid the reefs. So here is the name of the dangerous angle. Cook's Monument and lighthouse are built on the dangerous corner. It's a dangerous angle, but it's also the most beautiful one. There are beautiful coasts stretching for several kilometers and flocks of flying seabirds. The dangerous corner of paradise for walking dogs is also a surfing area.
