Experience Broadbeach in holiday homes to rent

Bustling Broadbeach, a suburb that's smack in the middle of Queensland's glitzy Gold Coast, is aptly named for its uber-wide beaches. It's a surfer's paradise, and not surprisingly, that's the name of a neighbourhood just north of here. If you're not into shredding it on some breakers, you can kick it at 1 of several beachfront parks. This neighbourhood's also a hot spot for music festivals. Oh, and let's not 'discount' the ridiculous shopping opps here. Broadbeach vacation rentals are just a hop, skip and a jump from some massive malls.
