Gold Coast Accommodation

Broadbeach

Broadbeach Views at SunsetLocated just minutes from the Gold Coast Airport, Broadbeach is south of Surfers Paradise and an hour's drive south of Queensland's capital Brisbane. One of the most popular holiday destinations on the Gold Coast, Broadbeach offers the perfect mix of vibrant lifestyle and relaxing village vibes.

Offering the best of both worlds, Broadbeach offers a sophisticated blend of cosmopolitan nightlife, shopping and dining alongside picture perfect beaches. The beachfront offers BBQ facilities and family friendly picnic areas, with modern fine dining restaurants and trendy cafes just metres away. Along the foreshore you'll find nearby parks including Victoria Park and Federation Park as well as local sculptures and art, picturesque gardens and children's playgrounds as well as farmers markets and local art, craft and produce markets on selected days.

Broadbeach proudly boasts one of the Gold Coast's best beaches, a striking stretch of sand that offers two patrolled swimming areas and rolling waves perfect for surfers to enjoy. Along with safe swimming, Broadbeach is known for its fantastic weather year round which means that beach is always at its best.

Of course the summer months are when the beach gets busiest, with locals and visitors out to soak up at spectacular conditions, along with beach and surf race events held by the lifesavers. When the wind picks up, you'll also spot the colourful sails of kite surfers who come out to enjoy the beach. If you're lucky enough to be visiting from June to November, you can also usually spot the majestic humpback whales as they pass through Broadbeach's waters on their annual migration.

Broadbeach is known for its shopping, with hundreds of retailers, boutiques, specialty stores and designer brands. The region is home to a wide range of major shopping malls including Niecon Plaza, Oasis Shopping Centre and the huge indoor and outdoor complex of Pacific Fair. Take your new purchases out for a spin with a night on the town at some of the best dance, music and entertainment venues on the coast offering world-class nightlife.

Along with its outstanding entertainment, Broadbeach is also an events hub thanks to its excellent range of apartments and accommodation, casino and convention facilities. In fact, Broadbeach features the largest regional convention centre in Australia and the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre plays host to a huge range of trade shows, exhibitions, festivals and events throughout the year.
