Holiday Lettings in Broadbeach Let You Enjoy the Gold Coast in Comfort
Just adjacent to the beloved destination the Gold Coast, Broadbeach, or Broadie, as the locals affectionately call this suburb, offers a blend of warm tropical summers, lively streets, gorgeous beaches, and spots for colourful outings. Holiday lettings in the area are chic and diverse, with an array of modern apartments in complexes equipped with amenities like gyms and pools, as well as beachside bungalows with private pools, to choose from. Whether you go for a compact flat or a sprawling home, however, you're equally able to enjoy Broadbeach's ample supply of parks, open-air markets, shopping, dining, and of course, wide sandy beaches.
Diverse dining options in Broadbeach
You'll find a convenient, dense concentration of restaurants all in easy walking distance from one another, and therefore likely also near your holiday apartment, in Broadbeach. For a chic option with a cocktail list, Social Eating House + Bar is perennially popular. Fresh seafood, meanwhile, is naturally in abundance in town—Yellowfin Seafood is a good choice for a fresh catch, or you can have your fish Hawaiian style at Aloha Bar and Dining.
Broadbeach, like much of Australia, is also no stranger to excellent Asian cuisine, and you'll find a range of great Japanese and Thai restaurant options nearby. There are also quite a few tasty vegetarian spots where you won't even notice the meat is missing. For something truly unique, reserve tickets for Dracula's Cabaret Restaurant. This unusual dinner theatre offers a wild mix of comedy, singing, and dancing, and other performances, for audiences over 15 years of age.
Broadbeach with the kids
A plethora of spacious holiday lettings, a wide sandy beach, numerous casual dining options, and a walkable town centre make Broadbeach a terrific destination for families. Year-round arts and crafts markets, held on the first and third Sundays of the month in Kurrawa Park, offer everything from local fruit to toys to jewellery—there's something for everyone in your family to shop for. In neighbouring Pratten Park, you'll find soccer fields and playgrounds, great for kids who need to stretch their legs.
Speaking of playgrounds, pack a picnic and head to the riverside Cascade Gardens. This family favourite offers barbecue spots, a huge playground, and ample space for little ones to run around. You can also hike through rainforest and visit an enclosed water bird sanctuary. Just south of Broadbeach you'll hit Mermaid Beach, where Putt Putt Golf offers not one but three 18 hole mini-golf courses.
Explorations beyond Broadbeach
While this laid-back suburban oasis and neighbouring city of Gold Coast offer much to do for holidaymakers, those looking to hop in a rental car and venture outward will be spoilt for choice. Drive an hour inland to the rainforests of Lamington National Park, where you can hike to waterfalls, spot endangered birds, and see some of the oldest conifers in Australia. Up the coast, you'll find South Stradbroke Island Nature Park. This is a beautiful destination for both white sand beaches and wildlife spotting. Popular for campers and hikers, South Stradbroke Island is also home to a huge population of wallabies.
Of course, it wouldn't be an Australian holiday without some surfing. Just a ten-minute drive north, you'll find yourself at the aptly named Surfers Paradise Beach. Even if you're not ready to paddle out on a board, you can still enjoy this scenic, iconic beach, as well as the suburb's bustling, high-rise filled commercial centre.
Broadbeach, a hub of annual festivals
Whether you're in town for New Year's Eve and want to enjoy fireworks at the beach, or you've taken a July holiday letting and are looking to let loose with live music, Broadbeach will keep you entertained. Totally free and staged across town, Blues on Broadbeach Music Festival lets you take in performances from international and local blues musicians alike. During the first week of April, you can get into the Aussie spirit as a spectator at the Australian Surf Life Saving Championships. And in early October every year, a one-day craft beer festival provides tipples for both visiting and local brew-lovers, with over 150 regional breweries represented. You can also check out what's on at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre during your visit; some events hosted here are open to the public.
