I'm wondering if there are any particularly good places in the Brisbane/Sunshine/Gold Coast areas I should be visiting in an initial scouting run for gear, as I need to figure out how much it will all be costing me. After reading so so many posts on the topic of gear, I have done nothing but confuse myself further about what I want/need and I figure the best thing I can do is actually go to a shop and look at stuff. Besides, nothing quite beats trying stuff on . Any suggestions for places to visit would be great please, as I need to determine how much I'm going to be spending before I can get the money to do it. I live out at Depression Bay :roll: , but don't mind driving out to the Gold Coast if it helps me to make some decisions. Thank you kindly.
