Slightly north of the internationally popular party destination, Surfers Paradise, on Queensland’s Gold Coast, Southport offers coastal relaxation with water and city skyline views.

Queensland’s famous marine theme park, Sea World, is the main attraction of Southport, offering live shows and up-close encounters with seals, dolphins, penguins and polar bears, among other marine life and theme park rides.

Parkland spans along the calm sea inlet at Southport, making it a perfect place for families with young children, boating and fishing enthusiasts and those wanting to try some water sports. Take a picnic blanket, indulge in some fish and chips from the parkland foreshore and enjoy the crystal blue water views.

Southport’s Australia Fair shopping centre at the heart of the town’s retail and dining hub, and a short stroll from the coastal parklands. An Event Cinema is located in the Australia Fair complex.

Luxury hotels and apartment accommodation in Southport overlooks the Broadwater and Southport Spit, which is a popular location for music festivals in Queensland’s sunny summer.
