Mermaid Waters

Mermaid Waters, Gold Coast Area
Boasting waterways with names such as Rumrunner Lake and Lake Wonderland, it's easy to see the appeal of Mermaid Waters, a canal community which sits at the elbow of Mermaid Beach. Australian surveyor John Oxley first came to the area in 1823 and gave it its name after the cutter ship Mermaid on which he travelled. Primarily a residential suburb, it's worth a wander here to check out the luxury homes situated along the canals and lakes. There's a wide range of Asian and European restaurants in this area, which offers easy access to nearby Mermaid Beach. The Mermaid Waters Hotel is a bit of an accommodation icon around these parts which is also home to a range of apartments, resorts and backpackers. In the Gold Coast fairytale, where Surfers Paradise would be cast as Cinderella, if there was to be a Little Mermaid, then Mermaid Waters would most certainly fit the bill.

Broadbeach

Broadbeach, Gold Coast Area
Boy has bustling Broadbeach come a long way baby. Once the little brother to big sister Surfers Paradise, Broadbeach or "Broadie" to locals, is all grown up, and how. You could start in the surf, with its beautiful beaches, framed by lazy parks home to weekend markets and weekday yoga classes. Or wander down the Broadbeach Mall, peppered with roving street artists and framed by alfresco dining whose tentacles seem to keep spreading in all directions. Yes, you've now met one of the Gold Coast's dining divas, with everything from gourmet delis, to bistros and brasseries. There's five-star feasts to be had along here too, and seemingly a new restaurant or bar every time you blink. Not that it's overdone. That's not Broadie's style. If you do want some razzle dazzle, head across the Gold Coast Highway to Jupiters Hotel and Casino, with its 24-hour casino, bars, lounges, restaurants and shows galore. You'll also find the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre here, home to top international and Australian recording artists and business conference. Let's not forget that other icon - Pacific Fair - one of Australia's largest retail centres with more than 300 stores, cinemas, and casual dining. And when the sun and fun finally sets on your day, choose from a wide range of accommodation options. All the top brand hotels in Asia/Pacific have taken up residence here, as have some super swanky apartments. Sure, Broadbeach has grown up, but it will always be Broadie to the locals.

Mermaid Beach

Mermaid Beach, Gold Coast Area
Adjacent to its fashionable neighbours Broadbeach and Miami lies the Gold Coast's coastal town of Mermaid Beach, called so after the cutter HMS Mermaid. This relaxed stretch of golden coastline is popular with swimmers and surfers looking to escape the flocks of people. Keen surfers make tracks for the uncrowded break at Heron Avenue and later refuel at the Surf Life Saving Club, renowned as being possibly the Coast's very best. Wishing you could stay longer? There's a range of accommodation options to suit all budgets, from the crème-de-la-crème of beachfront real estate along Hedges Avenue known as 'millionaire's row', to modest self-contained apartments and simple caravan parks.
