Darth Vader Dog

Here’s a bit of trivia – The original motel was demolished to make way for a hotel in Surfers Paradise, but the heritage listed neon sign has been reinstalled close to its original position.  It’s a Gold Coast City ’emblem’ and such a quaint reminder of the past!

    Maybe now that Disney has taken control of Star Wars, Darth Vader will turn out to be a cuddly poodle after all. I love the pink poodle sign, makes me feel all Vegas-y

      Hehe! Yes, maybe. Vegas-y eh … that would be Brisvegas – about an hour up the road 🙂

        Is Brisbane a casino town? Ooh! My wife and I love blowing a whole dollar playing the penny-slots.

            If they have free soft drinks and penny slots, then it’s enough.
