With a variety of accommodation, numerous dining options, sun drenched beaches, boutique shopping and vibrant nightlife, Broadbeach is fast becoming the premier destination for Gold Coast vacations. Holiday makers are amazed at the many things to do in and around the Broadbeach area as well as how close it is to the rest of the Gold Coast region.
Along the Broadbeach strip travellers are spoilt for choice when it comes to dining. Choose from over 100 quality restaurants and cafes which line Surf Parade and the Broadbeach Mall, each offering alfresco dining and delicious international cuisine. Among these restaurants travellers will find some of the best and most sophisticated on the Gold Coast including Moo Moo The Wine Bar and Grill which serves up some of the best steak in Queensland.
On top of dining being one of the main attractions for holiday makers visiting the Coast each year are the incredible beaches. Gold Coast boasts 50km of white sand and pristine blue waters which stretch through and past Broadbeach. Kurrawa Beach in Broadbeach has a reputation as a safe bathing location and hosts some of Australia's major surf life saving competitions.
If holiday makers aren't in the water their sure to be shopping at the many stores Broadbeach offers, whether it be at one of the largest retail stores in Australia, Pacific Fair, or one of the boutique stores at the Oasis Shopping Centre on Broadbeach Mall or Niecon Plaza located on Surf Parade. No matter what you're looking for you're sure to find it in Broadbeach.
With great shopping comes great nightlife and entertainment. The majority of the Gold Coast's nightclubs and bars are located in Broadbeach and neighbouring Surfers Paradise. Dance the night away to house music, techno, live bands or watch a Las Vegas style floor show at The Star Gold Coast, then try your luck on the gaming tables.
