THE Gold Coast’s tallest building and Australia’s only beachside observation deck will this month turn yellow in support of Cancer Council’s Daffodil Day.
From August 20 to Daffodil Day on August 22, Gold Coast will shine bright with the nightly light-up of level 77 of SkyPoint, located at the top of the Q1 Building.
Cancer Council Queensland Regional Fundraising Coordinator Lyn Mitchell thanked SkyPoint for showing they care about beating cancer and supporting those impacted by the disease.

“With some of the city’s biggest icons involved, it will be hard to not catch Daffodil Day fever on the Gold Coast!” Ms Mitchell said.
“A bright splash of yellow does more than light up the city – it gives hope for better treatments, hope for more survivors, and hope for a cancer free future.
Ms Mitchell said it was expected that more than than 3100 Gold Coasters would be diagnosed with cancer this year.
It’s hoped that around $1.7 million will be raised this year to support vital work in cancer research, education and patient support.
You can purchase Daffodil Day merchandise at your local shopping centre, train and bus stations and other locations on the day.
