Just a short walk from the Centre, Broadbeach’s spectacular surf beach awaits, enticing you in for a swim. This area is one of the hubs of café culture on the Gold Coast with over 60 pavement cafés and restaurants. Two major shopping centres are also within walking distance and just a few minutes drive north is world famous Surfers Paradise, a popular tourist destination and mecca for surfers the world over. An endless selection of entertainment and leisure activities is immediately accessible.

The Centre is exclusive in its size and, with its contemporary architecture, reflects the vibrancy of the Gold Coast culture and image.
