Broadbeach

1

A little further down from the hardest hit tourist destination of the Gold Coast (surfers paradise) lies a place which offers all the entertainment of its northern sister (actually more) without that tacky tourist-built feeling. right on the beach and wrapped around the trunks of architecturally amazing buildings is a string of great restaurants and humble cafes, complete with jazz music wafting from the street corner every so often.

Broadbeach, as this attractive little hub is called is definitely one for the locals, and for the interestingly tasteful tourists (often these fantastic people can be seen carrying an analogue camera and a spare roll of film ahem)who are looking for an experience with a bit more authenticity than the club scene which is Surfers Paradise. So if you are visiting the Gold Coast, make sure you take yourself for breakfast in Broadbeach, possibly stay for lunch, even be tempted for dinner, mabey hit a bar or two for a drink… heck just stay the night.
