When it comes to Australian holiday destinations, one of the very best has to be the Gold Coast. And whereas Surfers Paradise used to be the favourite, there’s a new star in town these days, and that’s Broadbeach.
This wonderful beachside suburb has it all, and attracts tens of thousands of visitors every year. Let’s discover why.
BEST BEACHES ON THE COAST
The Gold Coast boasts 75km of beaches – and Broadbeach has two of the best. Safe, sheltered and patrolled, they are just perfect for family vacations. And once the sun sets, there’s no better place for a romantic moonlit walk.
As if the endless coastline wasn’t enough, there’s also an extensive network of navigable waterways, that are very popular with kayakers and stand up paddle boarders.
These more peaceful water activities are a great way of getting amongst nature and spotting the local wildlife.
GOLD COAST RESTAURANTS
If you love to dine out you’ll quickly discover that Broadbeach is home to the very best Gold Coast restaurants. Not only that, its most famous eat-street has recently undergone a multi-million-dollar makeover in preparation for the Commonwealth Games.
Ocean Street is home to a huge choice of international cuisines, and offers everything from gourmet banquets to good old fashioned seaside fish and chips.
WORLD CLASS ENTERTAINMENT
Whether you’re into stage shows, music festivals or international events, you’ll find them all in and around Broadbeach.
Jupiters Casino offers fine dining along with world class entertainment, while there are plenty of venues with live music and comedy. For something completely different, try Dracula’s Cabaret Restaurant & Theatre.
You’ll discover amazing street entertainment at the regular Sunday markets, as well as major music events throughout the year, such as Blues on Broadbeach.
Broadbeach is also a great location from which to enjoy the many international sports events held on the Gold Coast, such as the Quiksilver pro surfing championships; the Gold Coast Indy 300, and Australian PGA Championship.
SHOP TILL YOU DROP
If you love your shopping, Gold Coast Broadbeach accommodation is perfect for you! On the doorstep you not only have a vast array of chic boutiques, but also the amazing Pacific Fair Shopping Centre.
Queensland’s largest shopping and dining destination, Pacific Fair is home to hundreds of specialty stores and major retailers.
BEST GOLD COAST RESORTS
If you’re looking for amazing resorts that offer affordable luxury and unbeatable facilities, Broadbeach is where you will find them! And with some just metres from the beach, it just doesn’t get any better.
The resorts offer space, security and privacy, whilst putting you right in the centre of the action. They’re a great choice for business accommodation, too, with the Gold Coast Convention Centre on the doorstep.
Most of the resorts offer excellent amenities but be sure to shop around for the best deals. If you’re visiting off-season, look for one with an indoor heated pool for that extra touch of luxury.
These are just some of the many reasons why Broadbeach now wears the crown when it comes to Gold Coast accommodation. Isn’t it time you tried it for yourself!
