We have a lovely two bedroom apartment in Main Beach on the Gold Coast. We are one block from the ocean and a patrolled beach and half a block from Tedder Avenue with coffee shops, restaurants and bars. 5 minutes walk to the tram gives access from Main Beach to Broadbeach (Pacific Fair) and in the other direction to Southport and beyond. It is a lovely area for relaxing and dining out and there are terrific walks along the Spit and across the Broadwater to the new Broadwater parklands.
The Gold Coast is a popular holiday destination, with its white sandy beaches stretching along 25 kilometres of coastline to the state border with New South Wales. The water is crystal clear and the beaches are patrolled by trained lifeguards. Just one hour drive west is the well known Gold Coast Hinterland. The mountains are dotted with restaurants and wineries. Bush walking is very popular and most tracks have easy access and offer a range of degrees of difficulty. The rainforests and waterfalls are a must to see. Two hours north of us is the world renowned Steve Irwin’s Australia Zoo. Seaworld, Warner Bros. Movieworld, Dreamworld (a smaller version of Disneyland), are all within 30 minutes drive.
The Gold Coast has more than 30 excellent Golf courses. The closest golf course is just 10 minutes drive away. Local clubs and hotels have a great variety of performances at reasonable prices. Jupiter’s Casino is located just 15 minutes drive to the south. Gold Coast Arts Centre hosts many musical, dance and theatrical productions.
