The best part about a stay in Southport could very well be the spectacular Broadwater location. With some of the top spots on the Gold Coast at your fingertips, it’s no wonder holidaymakers love staying with us year after year.
The Broadwater Parklands
Set upon the tranquil waterfront, you can stroll at your leisure through the parklands, enjoying the gardens and the water views. Watch the boats as they make their way past, get your adrenaline pumping with a jetski ride, or challenge your family with the inflatable Aqua Park obstacle course.
The kids will love the scooter and bike tracks, playgrounds, artificial rock pools and splash park, as well as the huge jumping zone where dozens of kids can climb, bounce, and giggle. There’s also a dedicated swimming area sectioned off that’s perfect for paddling, building sandcastles, and enjoying a picnic.
Alongside the parklands is the Gold Coast Aquatic Centre. Swim some laps, join in a class, check out the diving facilities, or just have a soak and cool off. The world class facilities were built for the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, and are guaranteed to delight.
You can grab a bite to eat or explore the range of boutique stores at Marina Mirage, head up to the Spit jetty and wander out to watch the waves. You can fish along the Gold Coast Seaway, and snorkel or scuba dive on Wavebreak Island. It’s hard to look past Seaworld, with not only incredible marine wildlife to see and interact with, but rides, shows, and many more attractions to enjoy.
