Planning a break on the beautiful Gold Coast
but want to bypass the glitterati of Surfers Paradise
? How about staying in one of our Broadbeach hotels? This funky Queensland suburb is right next door to Surfers, giving you easy access to some of the Goldie's most popular attractions while also allowing you to retreat to a quieter spot for some R&R after a big day (or night) out.
Things to do
If you’ve got "learn to surf" on your bucket list – this is the place to do it. The waves sure are nice here and Broadbeach is well-known for its surf schools. The instructors will have you hanging 10 in no time! If it's just a safe swimming beach you're after, you can't beat gorgeous Kurrawa Beach. Just be sure to slip, slop, slap!
Do you feel lucky, punk? Put Lady Luck to the test at Conrad Jupiter's Casino. It's open 24 hours a day, so you can have a bit of fun whenever you like but remember to always gamble responsibly.
After unleashing your inner James Bond and getting primed to jump on the pro surfing circuit, you can unwind with a stroll along the canals in Broadbeach Waters or go zen by the waterfalls in Cascade Gardens.
Shopping and dining
Whip out your credit cards and hit the shops at Pacific Fair, one of Australia's largest shopping centres. With cinemas, clothing stores, big name designer boutiques and a food court with stacks to choose from, you could spend an entire day here. For something a bit more laidback, there's the Broadbeach Art and Craft Market at Kurrawa Park on the first and third Sunday of the month.
Feeling peckish? Tame your growling stomach at any one of the countless cafes, restaurants and eateries here. There's everything from Mediterranean cuisine to ethnic food so get ready to tantalise your tastebuds. And when the sun goes down, that's when the action really heats up in Broadbeach. There are heaps of clubs and bars to party in but for a hilarious night out, don't miss Dracula's Cabaret Restaurant.
Getting here and around
Getting to Broadbeach is as simple as booking a flight to the Gold Coast
then hopping on a shuttle or catching a taxi to this beachside beauty. Once you’re there it’s easy to get around on buses, trams and trains.
So what are you waiting for? Book your Broadbeach accommodation with us now and get ready to holiday on one of South East Queensland's most beautiful beaches! The sunshine’s calling.
