Gold Coast Dining
The Coast is a place where night bites, hatted restaurants, street-eats and breweries are all served with a side of alfresco. A place where five-star feasting means dusting the sand from your feet; where surfers swap their boards for a latte at sun-up and little ones break from beachside frolics to feast on epic spreads of fish and chips.
From Burleigh’s perennially popular rooftop bars to communal eateries in Palmy, fine dining at Broadbeach to reinvented venues in Surfers, there is a renaissance stirring up the Gold Coast culinary scene. Vegan eateries sit alongside revamped rooftops and converted warehouses, and foodies mix money-can’t-buy views with iconic surf clubs, food trucks and local espresso haunts; and once the sun goes down, speakeasy vibes and cosy rum hideaways add another flavour to the scene.
Whether you find yourself among the cool crowd at Nobby Beach, or part of the social scene in Broadbeach or Surfers Paradise, consider yourself an acai aficionado, a sausage sizzler or a coffee connoisseur, nothing says you’ve had a cracker-of-a-holiday quite like gaining a little extra padding around the middle. Bon appétit!
Attractions for the whole Family
Did you know kids laugh on average 400 times a day, whereas us parental types manage a measly 15-20? Perhaps it’s time to loosen up. Mums and dads, let your imagination run wild and give release to your inner child with worlds made for the sole purpose of wonder.
The Coast’s kid cred is already world renowned – theme parks rise from the sand and sea. Jump into cute, cuddly and roaring wildlife encounters; worlds built entirely for those that bounce; and ice-creameries serving up sugar highs from just about every corner.
Spine tingling, hair raising, “that was epic!” type of adventures more your thing? We amp up the adrenaline with white-knuckled V8s and we’ll happily oblige if you need a wingman to scale sky-high buildings or zip-line through ancient rainforests.
