Welcome to Broadbeach, Mermaid & Nobby Beach
Directly south of Surfers Paradise, Broadbeach may be all about apartment towers and pedestrian malls, but it's decidedly more upmarket than its neighbour, with carefully landscaped streets and smart places to eat, drink and shop. To its south, the low-rise blocks and rambling beach shacks look rather a lot like the Gold Coast of old. But nestled in these seemingly suburban streets and strip malls you'll find some of the region's most innovative eating and drinking options. Of course, the gorgeous stretch of golden shore is beguiling here, too.
