Destination guide

Broadbeach is just the place to enjoy the glitzy Gold Coast

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.

Things to do

Step on up and roll the dice at Gold Coast's only casino

Australia's the Lucky Country, so definitely mosey over to Broadbeach's Star Casino for a turn at the tables. You can catch a basketball game, concert or event at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre. And get your shop on in the Oasis Shopping Centre or Pacific Faire, the latter of which is the second-largest mall on the Gold Coast. Aim high at the SkyPoint Observation Deck, which also has a weekend nightclub and several cafes that all have views for days. Just 14 km south is Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, a massive haven for all kinds of animals and plants.


Like the beaches, the activity options are endless

There are loads of places to eat and drink, from fancy to familiar. And these idyllic, wide stretches of golden sand are perfect for lazing and gazing, so throw on your togs, grab your towel, and put some coldies in the esky. Or park yourself at Kurrawa Park, a peaceful green space with playgrounds, paths, and shady spots that lead up to the beautiful beachfront. Broadbeach is not all beach; it's also a sweet lil' suburb for music lovers, as it hosts both jazz and blues festivals each year.


Broadbeach is all blazin' summers and balmy winters

So Broadbeach is maybe not the place to go if you're craving chilly winter weather. The coldest temps are in the mid teens, from June to August. In the summer, it gets scorchin' hot and humid, but an occasional downpour or thunderstorm quickly cools things off. The Coral Sea's water temperatures are simply sublime from October to May, averaging in the mid to upper 20s. Christmas is quite the popular time for Broadbeach vacation rentals. The warm and sunny suburb puts on a free Christmas Carol concert that will fill even the Grinchiest of Grinches with holiday spirit.

Natural highlights

The sea views are ace in this beautiful place

Want to know what's ace about this particular place? It's only 4 blocks wide so all Broadbeach vacation rentals offer easy beach access, and many have sea views. This small strip of low-lying coast is between the Coral Sea and the Gold Coast Highway. Surrounding the suburb is a lovely network of canals and waterways that weave about the city. The enormous Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary just south of here is a great place to check out native plants and animals. It's known around the world for the flocks of free-flying wild rainbow lorikeets who go there to snack on seeds.
