Queensland’s Gold Coast has always been known for its glitz and glamour, but there’s actually a lot more to this sensational holiday destination than just the party capital of Surfers Paradise. It really is one of the most naturally beautiful places in Australia.
It’s often been said to represent the green and gold, the national colours of Australia, with its golden beaches meeting the lush green hinterland. Certainly, it’s one of the jewels in this country’s crown.
While some holiday destinations target a particular type of tourist, the Gold Coast has something for everyone, from its sophisticated resorts, fine dining and Jupiter’s Casino, to theme parks, and fish and chips by the sea.
Best In The World
There are amazing shops, pretty parks, historic buildings, art galleries, events and shows, not to mention the region’s stunning natural beauty, wildlife and myriad water-based activities. Some say the Gold Coast tourist attractions are amongst the best in the world.
And then there’s the accommodation. From the opulence of the Palazzo Versace Hotel to beachside camping, it’s a place where you get to indulge your passions and return home relaxed and refreshed.
One of my favourite places to stay is Broadbeach, where you’ll find the Phoenician Resort; to my mind, one of the very best Gold Coast luxury resorts. For starters, it’s just metres from the patrolled surf beach, so there are no long treks back and forth if you forget your towel!
Hire A Kayak
The resort is also exceptionally well placed to enjoy those many great tourist attractions and the natural beauty of the coastline and the many navigable inland waterways. In fact, hiring a kayak and enjoying a leisurely paddle around the luxury homes of Broadbeach Waters is quite an experience!
The Phoenician Resort is walking distance from many of the area’s best attractions and amenities, including Jupiter’s Casino, the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre, and Pacific Fair Shopping Centre. Or else it’s just a short drive to the Gold Coast’s famous theme parks and other such adventures.
Families might like to purchase an annual pass and make the most of Warner Bros Movie World, Sea World, Dream World and Wet ‘n Wild.
Visit The Hinterland
If you haven’t got your car with you, it’s not a problem, as the resort has a tour desk and can help you make arrangements to go wherever you wish. Certainly you should try and spend a day in the beautiful hinterland, taking in the breathtaking mountain views, and enjoying morning tea in one of the olde worlde tea rooms.
Largely protected by Lamington National Park, this is a World Heritage listed area due to its outstanding geological features and the many rare and threatened rainforest species.
The Phoenician Resort puts you just where you need to be to experience the Gold Coast’s many major events – in fact, several of them are held in Broadbeach itself. For example, Kurrawa Park, just metres from the resort, will be the venue for Opera in the Park on October 1.
This lovely suburb is also the location for the Broadbeach Jazz Weekend every August, and Blues on Broadbeach every May.
Best Restaurants On Gold Coast
If it’s fine dining you’re after, Broadbeach and the Phoenician Resort are again a great choice. The famous Gold Coast dining strip is located in Broadbeach, and is currently undergoing a spectacular makeover. You can literally eat your way around the world here, with some amazing international cuisines from which to choose.
Of course, some people probably go to these events as an excuse to stay at the Phoenician Resort! And who would blame them? It’s a luxury resort, with an affordable price tag, and some of the best resort facilities you’ll find on the Gold Coast.
Imagine being able to tend one of these amazing shows and then simply walk the short distance back to your spacious and private luxury apartment. Relax in complete comfort, with separate lounge and dining areas in the two-bedroom apartments.
