AUSTRALIA staked it's claim as the bikini capital of the world as more than 350 women stripped-off to establish a new world record.
Thousands of males could barely keep from drooling as the 357 women paraded through Surfers Paradise, on the Gold Coast.
The previous world record of 332 was set in the Cayman Islands last year.
Australian Guinness World Record adjudicator Chris Sheedy said: “'Today 361 girls walked through the counter but there had to be a few disqualifications because they were not wearing bikinis.
“Unfortunately for the Cayman Islands they have had their record smashed.”
