Southport gets its name from the fact that it was the southern most port for the colony of Queensland. Soutport is home to one of the Gold Coast's largest shopping complexes, Australia Fair, as well as trendy cafes and restaurants, Southport Yacht Club, exclusive Marina Mirage boutiques and buzzing nightlife. Southport is also centrally located to the Gold Coast's world famous surf beaches and exciting attractions and theme parks, such as Seaworld.

There are some beautiful parklands along the Broadwater providing visitors with great picnic areas and water-lined walkways. Being the largest expanse of calm water in Australia the area is particularly popular for boating and other watersports. Southport's swimming enclosure and pool complex are popular with families.

Southport is also home to the Gold Coast's award-winning Marina, the Southport Yacht Club's Main Beach clubhouse and the Hollywell Sailing Squadron which provides a world class sail training facility and caters to the needs of dinghy, multihull, trailer yacht and other off-the-beach classes. Southport Yacht Club hosts the prestigious Queensland Yachting Association IMS and IRC State Yachting Titles and conducts both offshore racing and cruising.
