An interesting legacy from the mid 1960's the Gold Lycra Bikini clad Meter Maids. Today's Gold Coast Meter Maids are not only ambassadors for tourism by topping up the metres of tourists, they are an excellent mobile resource of tourist information. They've done a lot for promoting the Gold Coast's tourist friendly image and they've been photographed with everyone from former Prime Minister Bob Hawke to rugby legend Wally Lewis and Australian pop singer John Farnham.
