Beginning in 2002, the Blues on Broadbeach Music Festival has been a major tourist draw for the musically inclined and often features a wide array of locally and internationally recognized performers and groups.
Broadbeach is definitely quieter than Surfers Paradise to the north, but it has an excellent stretch of beach nonetheless, as well as considerable dining and shopping options. Broadbeach Mall and Surf Parade are packed with trendy cafes and restaurants, and beachfront craft markets are held on the first and third Sunday of every month. The nearest airport is located a mere 10 miles (16 kilometers) from the city, making it a good choice for tourists looking to limit the amount of on-the-ground travel time during their visit.
