Cruise out on any Friday night or during the weekend to Broadbeach and you will be amazed at the number of people enjoying the restaurants and coffee shops. Definitely the place to be seen, it’s boardwalk and roadside dining provides many styles of food. Don’t be surprised to see visiting film stars grabbing a bite to eat in one of these trendy dining areas.


Burleigh is a culinary hot spot to boot. It’s home to ample cafes open till mid-afternoon and casual late-night eats. One of the few beachside precincts with a distinctive hub; with James Street at its heart, a devout café and breakfast culture, fashionable retail and weekend markets, all bordered by forested Burleigh Heads National Park; creating a cool coastal pocket with a sense of community and nonchalant vibe.


The rich and famous mix with the locals and tourists in the selection of seafood, Italian and Australian restaurants situated along the broadwater in the heart of the Gold Coast Marina. Overlooking the Super Yachts and motor cruisers, these restaurants offer best quality food and wine, prepared by internationally trained chefs. Expect the very best when you dine here – it may be more expensive than other restaurants on the Gold Coast but you certainly get what you pay for.


Relax at the marina surrounded by million dollar boats and supercars. With over 15 restaurants to chose from, it has a relaxed vibe which can be enjoyed for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.


A cheap meal by the ocean, nearly all the surf clubs (found in almost every oceanside suburb of the Coast) have a bistro where no matter what you choose you’ll find a huge pile of great food sitting on your plate for less than AUD$20.00. At this price, menu options can be limited but you can’t beat the value and you definitely can’t beat the view.


Behind the Studios, a short 30 minute drive will see you reach the serene Tamborine Mountain which offers a variety of different cuisines including Polish, High Tea, Indian and many different wineries with exquisite views to the coastline and over the mountains.
