Kurrawa Beach

Glorious Kurrawa Beach in Broadbeach is loved by locals and tourists alike, boasting a wide stretch of pristine white sand that merges with Surfers Paradise Beach in the north, sharing its fantastic surfing conditions yet more relaxed in its atmosphere.

If you’re looking to surf, Broadbeach Surf School is a selling point, offering affordable lessons for all ages and abilities. Kurrawa Surf Club, situated on the sand, provides modern cuisine and cold drinks in its bistro with a delightful view of the Pacific.

For sunbathing, surfing, beach-hopping and dining, Kurrawa Beach is the complete package.

Broadbeach Restaurants

Opposite Kurrawa Beach, experience world-class dining in Broadbeach, a dining mecca in its own right that rivals Surfers Paradise with its broad choice of restaurants, bars, cocktail lounges, brasseries, taverns and cafés.

Oracle Boulevard and Oasis Shopping Centre are two must-visit dining hotspots in Broadbeach, where you’ll find a mixture of open-air, fine dining, international and local restaurants. Other locations to wander for food include Surf Parade, Queensland Avenue and the Gold Coast Highway.

Broadbeach Shopping Centres 

Find more exciting restaurants and cafés in the vast Broadbeach shopping centres, including The Oasis and Pacific Fair Gold Coast, as well as the biggest array of fashion boutiques, international brands, jewellery stores, spas and souvenir shops.

When it comes to shopping on the Gold Coast, Broadbeach tops the list, offering a world-class shopping experience with its multitude of stores shared between Oasis Shopping Centre and Pacific Fair, both of which are a 5-minute drive from each other.

The Star Gold Coast

Over the Gold Coast Highway, The Star Gold Coast on Casino Drive is another major reason to make Broadbeach your next destination. This huge casino, dining and live entertainment complex is the place to go for more lavish dining options, in addition to bars and hundreds of casino games and tables, with regular live events held each month.

From international buffet restaurants to à la carte fine dining, stand-up comedy to sought-after live music tours, The Star Gold Coast guarantees an incredible time with your partner, family or a group of friends.

Dracula’s Cabaret Gold Coast

Dracula’s Gold Coast is another Broadbeach live venue and attraction that pulls in cabaret fans and nightlife lovers from all over Australia. This nationally renowned revue, which fuses cabaret, dance, burlesque and music with sparkling glam and vampire-themed horror, is highly entertaining from start to finish, complete with inclusive drinks and a three-course dinner.

Dracula’s Cabaret is located near Pacific Fair Shopping Centre on Hooker Boulevard, just a 5-minute drive from Kurrawa Beach.

Beachfront Broadbeach Parks

In addition to its excitement, Broadbeach features multiple picturesque parks for unwinding and escaping the hustle and bustle, including Broadbeach Park, Federation Park, Kurrawa Park and Pratten Park.

Kurrawa Park and Pratten Park run alongside the beach, making them ideal for taking a break from the sand and sea. Whichever you visit, you’ll enjoy a relaxed atmosphere, lots of space to stroll and more than a few shaded areas to set up a group picnic. 

World-Class Broadbeach Events

Being one of the Gold Coast’s premier destinations, Broadbeach boasts world-class events throughout the year, such as the annual Groundwater Country Music Festival, Blues on Broadbeach Music Festival and more.
