Gold Coast Seaway Dive Site

Southport, Gold Coast Area
Free Entry
The Gold Coast Seaway offers diving for the beginner to advanced. There are two pipes that protrude from the Southern Seaway wall. This dive site is divided into four main areas: South Wall (including the Sand Bypass Pipe and the Short Pipe) - great marine biodiversity; North Wall - schools of pelagic fish, wobbegong and whaler sharks; South-West Wall - beach entry and home to little critters; Wave Break Island - excellent for snorkelling, intro and learn to dive.

The Scottish Prince Dive Site

Southport, Gold Coast Area
Free Entry
The hull of The Scottish Prince lies in 10 metres of water near the Southport Spit providing a fascinating wreck dive on the Gold Coast. In 1887, "The Scottish Prince", a 3 steel-masted iron barque 64 metres long, sank as she was sailing from Glasgow, Scotland to Brisbane with a cargo of whiskey, mousetraps, linen and other assorted cargo. Only the hull remains and is covered with soft corals and sponges, and is a haven for crayfish, Shovelnose rays, Leopard and wobbegong sharks, and other tropical fish. The wreck is protected under the Commonwealth Historic Shipwreck Act.

Pine Ridge Conservation Park

Runaway Bay, Gold Coast Area
Free Entry
Pine Ridge Conservation Park protects one of the last remaining wallum banksia stands on the Gold Coast. In this small, virtually untouched park is culturally important to the Kombumerri-Ngarangwal people. Escape the city's hustle and bustle on a stroll or cycle along bitumen boundary tracks; or walk the sandy, centre track. See the park's varied plant-life, including tall bloodwood trees, heath and paperbark swamps. Enjoy the flush of wildflowers in late winter and spring, especially after good autumn rains. Remember the binoculars for watching wildlife. Camping is not allowed in the park, but a picnic area is available for those wanting to enjoy a whole day out.

Biggera Waters

Biggera Waters, Gold Coast Area
Beautiful Biggera Creek lent this suburb its name which is famous for its heritage-listed "land's end" site, but there is nothing final about a visit here. Those searching for a sedate spot in the northern part of the coast will adore a trip here, opposite the bustling Broadwater and the sizzling Gold Coast Spit and across from Wavebreak Island. One of the best ways to explore Biggera Waters is to hire a boat and travel around the creeks, estuaries and islands for which this part of the Gold Coast is best known. There's plenty of fishing spots among hidden channels, mangroves, rock walls and creek mouths. Or, if you prefer your fish already caught, enjoy the cafes and restaurants which are springing up along this sunny spot. Wander along the waterfront promenade and select from a wide-range of accommodation from luxury resorts, apartments, motels, self-contained units, caravanning and camping. Snatch a spot of shopping at popular Harbour Town, a destination within itself and home to discount designer fashion, homewares and accessory stores. It may have once been known as land's end, but here, it's really just the beginning.

Runaway Bay

Runaway Bay, Gold Coast Area
Escape enthusiasts will adore Runaway Bay and not just for the name. Bracketed by South Stradbroke Island to the east and a colourful canal system to the west, it's simple to see why this northern Gold Coast suburb was originally better known as Angler's Paradise. For it's a fishing feast galore here where you can opt for deep sea reef and game fishing, or select the more sedate option of dropping your line in a calm water estuary. The waterways around here are known for their local snapper, kingfish, pearl perch, tuna, wahoo or mackerel or if you venture out deeper, you might just bag yourself a marlin or sailfish. In the early 1970s, this parcel of land was transformed into the more upmarket Runaway Bay, but the laid-back vibe remains. These days, there's a local marina packed with luxury yachts and cruises and also plenty of options through which to explore the local waterways though houseboat hire. You don't need the big bucks either as there's plenty of budget options. Landlubbers will enjoy the Runaway Bay Shopping Centre, while sports enthusiasts will be drawn to the aquatic and sports centres nearby. All up, it sounds like the perfect escape.

Coomera

Coomera, Gold Coast Area
Local Aborigines named this suburb after a fern but these days it could easy be named after fun for you have now entered theme park heaven for which the Gold Coast is renowned. All the big names in entertainment are here including Dreamworld and WhiteWater World, Wet'n'Wild, Warner Bros. Movie World and the Australian Outback Spectacular. Enjoy adrenalin-pumping rides, gravity-defying rollercoasters, hair-raising water slides, stunt performances and exotic animals from around the world. Take a go-kart ride on a nearby track, jump in a scenic helicopter ride or kayak down the Coomera River. Away from all the adrenalin, the river is a perfect place to escape and houseboats for hire offer a different glimpse of the Gold Coast's waterways. The fishing here is superb too and you can catch mangrove jack, flathead, bream or trevally. Those with some spare cash or just some big dreams will love wandering around Coomera's Gold Coast Marina - the largest in the southern hemisphere. Super yachts, super fun. Yep, that's Coomera.

Labrador

Labrador, Gold Coast Area
Like a loyal puppy, Labrador has been one of the Gold Coast's mainstays since its hotel was built in 1884. Back in the day, this 15-room hotel complete with three sitting rooms, outhouses and stables, was perfect for the Cobb and Co coach service which transported boat passengers arriving from Brisbane. Local Aborigines were also drawn to the area due to its abundance of shellfish, mud crabs, oysters and waterfowl. Fast forward to the modern day, and visitors still flock here for the great range of accommodation from high rises to caravan parks to cafes and high-end restaurants. Sitting just north of Southport and just south of Biggera Waters, Labrador is popular for its calm waters, peaceful parks and views out to South Stradbroke Island. The Grand Hotel still sits there too. Sure, it may have changed a bit, but that kind of old-style service and loyalty for which Labrador is renowned, remains.

Southport

Southport, Gold Coast Area
If you squint into the sunshine and cast your mind back a little over a century, you can almost picture the Southport of old, one of the Gold Coast's earliest and most fashionable seaside destinations. Originally called Nerang Creek Heads, it wasn't long before Southport's name was changed to mirror that of the English resort of the same name. This area has a rich romantic history which in the 1890s attracted Queensland Governor Anthony Musgrave and his entourage for its sideshow theatre, the Southport pier and its picture theatre. Brisbane's well-heeled arrived by cutter or steamer and were rowed to shore. While access to this pretty place has since improved vastly, its appeal remains. Just north of Surfers Paradise, it is one of the major business hubs of the Gold Coast and overlooks the dazzling Broadwater and the Southport Spit which divides the Broadwater from the Pacific Ocean. Shop at Australia Fair Shopping Centre, or escape to the languid stretch of parklands here, along which you can wander and daydream that you are back in the days of petticoats and parasols.

Jacobs Well

Jacobs Well, Gold Coast Area
Named for its natural freshwater waterhole, thirsty travellers have been visiting Jacobs Well since the mid 1800s. Situated near the mouth of the Pimpama River on the edge of a pristine waterway peppered with uninhabited islands, Jacobs Well is a haven for fishermen and boat enthusiasts alike. This quaint fishing village, with lovely water views, is situated approximately halfway between the cities of Brisbane and the Gold Coast. It can be found 10 minutes off the Pacific Highway after a short drive through scenic fields of sugarcane. As the gateway to southern Moreton Bay, Jacobs Well is just a short boat ride to the Gold Coast Broadwater and the tourist Mecca of Southport. The area is an ideal launch site to access the islands and channels of the Jumpinpin area, well-known for its ideal fishing and boating conditions. Boaties will enjoy exploring the myriad of islands in the coastal channel and there are no bridges or obstacles or to spoil the fun! Fisherman will find nearby estuary waters teeming with flathead, whiting, tailor, and bream. Reel them in from the jetty or over the side of a boat. Just five minutes up the road is a luxury resort and deep water marina offering fine dining, live entertainment, cold drinks and knock-out views over the water. For a change of pace the Gold Coast’s major theme parks are only a 15 minute drive away and the heart of bustling Gold Coast is just 30 minutes down the road.
