When you think of Gold Coast, your mind immediately turns to glorious beaches and crystal blue oceans, but there is also a commercial heart of this thriving tourist city, and that heart, very much pulsating healthily, is Southport.
Southport, despite being Gold Coast's CBD is also the city's major entertainments area and still offers plenty of tourist and visitor attractions. It is a fascinating landscape of high rise towers and picturesque beachfront as well as the swampy reaches of the Nerang River.
Gold Coast City Council Chambers is home to a time capsule that was buried when Southport's original shopping centre (now demolished) was built back in 1969. As well as items from the time, it contains notes about the visions people had back then of what life would be like in the 21st century.
Southport Beach - The beach is golden and long, clean and well maintained. There is safe swimming here, but as Surfer's Paradise is only 6 minutes up the road, most beach lovers head there instead. If you like peace and quiet and somewhere safe for the kids to toddle about while you do pretty much nothing, Southport beach is ideal. Shade and showers are on the beach.
Broadwater - This is the area that made Southport originally attractive as a tourist destination way back when, and it refers to the stretch of coast facing Southport. Still attractive, the area is home to various marinas and Southport Yacht Club, and offers plenty of opportunities for fishermen, sailors and water sports enthusiasts.
Broadwater Parklands - There's an awful lot happening in this part of town. Subject to a majorly-funded development, the parklands are being regenerated to be Southport's premier space for outdoor pursuits, community and nationally significant events, sports and entertainment. Whilst development is ongoing, you'll find plenty of attractions including the pier, events areas, picnic spaces, massive outdoor cinema screen, a delightful fig tree boulevard, kids playgrounds, a cycle and scooter track, rockpools, wetlands, the ANZAC Park and the Pavilion Building, which along with other viewing platforms offers tremendous views.
Broadwaterway - A scenic pedestrian and cycle track that runs along the foreshore.
Sea World - Absolutely one of Gold Coast and Southport's major attractions and fulfilling all the expectations you have of a top class theme park, Sea World is packed with thrilling rides, play areas, entertainments, dining options and of course amazing animal encounters: Get up close and personal with dolphins, penguins, rays, polar bears (the only place in Australia where you can), hosts of seabirds, seal and sharks, in the biggest man-made shark lagoon in the world.
Gold Coast Aquatic Centre - Found on Marine Parade next to the Southport Broadwater, the outdoor centre is brilliantly equipped for all swim fans with a 50m pool, 33 and 25m pools and a teaching pool. There are also diving towers and an aquatic playground for kids.
Australia Fair Shopping Centre - It does seem that travel these days inevitably includes some retail therapy. For your holiday shopping needs Southport has Australia Fair with 230 shops. It also has 2 food courts, the nicety of which being that they overlook the Southport Spit and Broadwater. There's also a charming outdoors Fig Tree court where you and your credit card can take a break and soak up some sunshine. Other shopping can be found at Marine Mirage on The Spit, Scarborough Street and Southport Park., and the Ferry Street Markets are always good value for a trip out.
