Also just a suggestion, but because Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast are often considered collections of other smaller cities, you could include some of the following type-ins for each:

For Gold Coast:

Southport, Burleigh (Heads), Coolangatta, and (maybe) Tweed Heads.

For Sunshine Coast:

Maroochydore, Noosa, Mooloolaba, Caloundra, and Coolum (Beach).

There may be others you think would be appropriate, or some of these you don't think would be. Tweeds Heads is part of the Gold Coast urban area, but it is in NSW so it probably doesn't make sense to include it.

Disagree. There's just no need. Those are suburbs of the cities in question.

I'll certainly look it over (Tweeds Heads will be kept separate but I'm willing to add the other ones if it makes sense).

Comjag's point is quite reasonable. It was just a simple suggestion, not essential. On second thoughts it does make sense to keep it as is.
