Suburb Profile

Southport, the central hub of the Gold Coast. If you’re looking to be somewhere, in the absolute heart of town, then Southport is your new destination! Right on the Broadwater and surrounded by the beautiful Broadwater Parklands, with views across the water looking at the luxurious Marina Mirage and Versace Hotel. With an abundance of shopping facilities and restaurants/cafes, you will always be in for an exciting treat. The constant trams and buses will take you all over the Gold Coast, to the famous beaches and beyond. A touch of city life and a dash of natural beauty. Relax by the bright blue Broadwater with a picnic for lunch, and then indulge in the ambience bought by a variety of restaurants in the evening. The Broadwater Parklands give you the opportunity to take a lovely stroll across the water, and the exciting parks and “Aqua Splash call for some serious fun for the little ones.
