The Gold Coast is one of Australia’s most recognised holiday destinations by both national and international travellers. The coastal city has been the selected holiday location for families for many years, with additional attractions making appearances each year.
A holiday to the Gold Coast will never be a unmemorable occasion especially if you follow our must do guide guaranteeing the perfect fun filled trip away!
1. Less Known Beaches
The Gold Coast is renowned worldwide for its beaches, uncomparable to any other in the world. Although most tourists are attracted to the famous beach of Surfers Paradise, we recommend to take a trip down to Currumbin Alley beach. Only a 25 minute drive from Aqualine Apartments this beach boasts lovely clean sand, less people and safe swimming conditions. Why not make a day trip out of the drive and visit Elephant Rock just around the corner, which, as the name suggests looks uncannily like its animal counterpart. Many much loved cafe’s and restaurants are situated around this area, however the views of the Currumbin Surf Club always make it a winner!
2. Outlet Shopping
What better way to spend a holiday than indulging in a little retail therapy. The Gold Coast’s well known Pacific Fair outdoor shopping centre is always high on the list of must do activities on the coast, however it’s Harbour Town Shopping centre that has our pick. Only a 15 minute drive from Aqualine Apartments, Harbour Town is home to a huge array of designer brand outlets that offer unbeatable discounts all year round. Some of the big names include Levi’s, Nike, Tommy Hilfiger, Oroton, Polo Ralph Lauren and Hugo Boss. The centre is open every day including most public holidays, and is designed to provide shoppers with an outdoor retail experience so they can enjoy the Gold Coast’s beautiful weather. If you are travelling from interstate or overseas be sure to visit the Tourism Lounge located in the centre, to collect your VIP Tourism Card. The card offers special discounts and traveller incentives to ensure visitors take full advantage of the deals on offer.
3. Walk with a View
There is no better way to squeeze in some holiday exercise than to take a walk around Burleigh Headland National Park. Only a 20 minute drive from Aqualine Apartments this park offers two walking tracks- The Rainforest Circuit (2.3 km return) and The Ocean View Walk (1.3 km one way). Despite which track you choose both offer unmatched views of the famous Gold Coast skyline and beaches. The circuits can be accessed from the very top of Goodwin Terrace, Burleigh Heads, which also boasts picnic perfect grassy areas and facilities overlooking the ocean. We recommended to take a hat, sunscreen, insect repellent and a bottle of water to make the most of the experience.
4. Great Coffee & Great Food
Chirn Park, only a short stroll from Aqualine Apartments, is the home to a collection of the Gold Coast’s best cafe’s and dining options. Winner of the Crave Gold Coast “#1 Coffee on the Coast”, Daark Espresso is the northern Gold Coast’s answer to the perfect brew. As the focus of Daark is clearly the coffee, the menu is restricted but offers a flavour packed selection of all day breakfast and lunch items. Around the corner is Koncubine Cafe. Offering cosy indoor and cool outdoor seating this haunt is a favourite of locals. With a menu built on fancy sandwiches and classic breakfast dishes its unlikely to be anything other than satisfied. Thai Magik is another favourite of the area, offering fresh and truly authentic thai cuisine for a reasonable price. Tonic on Chirn is a fantastic tapas bar which easily competes with the well known establishments of Broadbeach. Tonic on Chirn offers an extensive cocktail list and a regularly refreshed menu of tapas dishes.
5. Pelican Feeding
The Ian Dipple Lagoon, located only 5 minutes up the road from Aqualine Apartments is the perfect place for a relaxed day of beach activities. The lagoon is sectioned off from the broadwater by a sand barrier providing safe swimming conditions all year round. The lagoon area also hosts barbeque facilities, picnic tables, childrens playground and shaded areas to ensure visitors can make the most out of their day. The main attraction however is the fascinating pelican feeding which occurs at 1:30 pm everyday, weather permitting. Free to all, spectators can watch as the huge number of pelicans soar down from the sky and then make their way out of the lagoon onto the banks for a lunchtime feed. Tourists are even encouraged to take photos with the pelicans before the take flight once again! Adjacent to the lagoon is the Gold Coasts famous Charis Seafoods, which along with supplying the lunchtime fish to the pelicans also has classic style fish and chips for the onlookers.
Broadwater Parklands is a world class community and cultural parkland located only 1km from Aqualine Apartments.

Friendly service and great food are both on offer at Thai Magik in Chirn Park. The restaurant is BYO and has both indoor and outdoor dining with traditional Thai decor. On weekends and most week nights the restaurant is packed so booking is recommended. The takeaway service is efficient and a great option if you are unable to get a table or just want a quiet night in with some great food.
The menu has something for everyone. Whether you want something spicy or mild, vegetarian or seafood you will find something you love. I personally can never go past the Red, Yellow or Green curries for my main and the beef samosas and vegetarian spring rolls for an entree. The coconut rice has also become a favourite and something we have tried to emulate at home but can never come close.
We have never had a guest stay who hasn’t loved the food and service at Thai Magik and we keep going back once every few weeks. There is a BWS conveniently located right across the road and Tonic on Chirn is a great little bar to head afterwards if you are looking for some entertainment or a nice place for a drink.
The combination of location, great food and service is a winner and makes this our favourite Thai restaurant on this end of the coast.

I can’t say I’ve ever been disappointed with my frequent visits to Cafe Gold Coast. Relaxing in the outdoor lounge chairs gazing over the Broadwater towards the Seaway is reason enough to go there. Add to that great coffee, friendly staff and beaut food and you can’t go wrong. We wander on up from Aqualine Apartments along the foreshore walk way of a Saturday morning. Settle in at Cafe Gold Coast, read the paper, have a coffee and the Hash Stack and think to ourselves – “Where else would you rather spend your Saturday morning?”
We eat out a lot and the combination of location, service, food and coffee puts Cafe Gold Coast in our top 3 cafes on the northern end of the Gold Coast.
My favourite breakfast
You know those places where you just feel at home? Koncubine Espresso Bar or Konc as us locals affectionately know it, is one of those places.
The girls at Konc do everything to make sure every customer is 100% satisfied whether it is just a take away coffee or a sit down meal. The service is very quick and always comes with a smile. Regulars are known by name which is always a good touch. Both the food and the coffee are amazing which leads to Konc having many regulars and the place is always bustling of a morning and weekends. The simple layout with outdoor covered seating as well as a cosy little tea room provides options for all weather.
Koncubines has a great breakfast menu as well as a wide selection of sandwiches, muffins, cakes etc. Our personal favourites include the Butterscotch Muffins, Pesto Scrambled Eggs and the Eggs Benedict. The crown jewel however is the Bacon and Egg Turkish roll. I have had many Bacon and Egg rolls in my time but none can even compare to what is on offer at Konc. Full of flavour with crunchy Turkish bread, perfectly cooked bacon, egg, caramelised onion and cheese this stand out is only $9.90. The girls have their menu down to a very fine art and even at the busiest of times on the weekends, meals are delivered very quickly. We at Aqualine Apartments highly recommend Koncubine Esspresso Bar, this is our favourite Cafe on the Gold Coast.
Avial Indian Cuisine is a new restaurant located in Southport. Avial aims to provide a mix of authentic Indian Cuisine from all over the sub-continent. The menu contains the old favourites like Butter Chicken, Rogan Josh and Korma, as well as amazing dishes you will not see in your stock standard Indian restaurant.
We are lovers of Indian food and have only ever had great meals from Avial. The owner is friendly and very accommodating, even to strange requests such as ours for ‘Spicy Butter Lamb’ (which was absolutely delicious). The service is excellent and the location right opposite the beautiful Broadwater is ideal. Parking is easy and the restaurant is fully licensed with BYO wine only.
This is with out a doubt the best Indian we have been to on the Gold Coast. Just a short walk from Aqualine Apartments it is a ‘must dine’ if you love Indian food like we do.

Karen and I have just taken over managing Aqualine Apartments and we’re really excited about the launching of our new website. We wanted a website that showcased the quality of our apartments and highlighted the brilliant location and we certainly feel that’s what we’ve got.
I looked for over 18 months for a suitable complex to buy into. Apart from price the key criteria was 1) Location – we wanted to be able to walk to restaurants and shops and have great water views. 2) Comfort – if we were moving from a 4 bedroom colonial in the country to a 2 bedroom apartment on the Gold Coast it had to be a pretty nice apartment. That is certainly what you get at Aqualine Apartments – modern, quality appliances and tastefully decorated apartments.
We live and work at Aqualine Apartments and we love it and we are very confident that you will love it as well
Well the weather behaved itself on Sunday and the thousands of riders participating in the Wilson HTM Charity ride from Brisbane to Southport were treated to an ideal day. The ride finished at Mitchel Park straight opposite us at Aqualine Apartments.
The number of big events using the Broadwater Parklands as a base is definitely on the increase making Aqualine Apartments the ideal accommodation choice if you’re going along to:
- Gold Coast Marathon
- Gold Coast ArmorAll 600 motor race
- Luke Harrop Memorial Triathlon
- Big Day Out
- Harbour Life
- Swimming and Waterpolo competitions at The Gold Coast Aquatic Centre
- The major Theme Parks
- Harbour Town Outlet Shopping Centre
The list goes on and the best thing is it’s a great place to do nothing but relax as well.
We got along to the first Farmers Markets held at Sharks car park on Saturday Nov 6th and we’ll be going back. There was a great selection of fruit and veg, quality meat, deli choices, breads and loads of other goodies at very competetive prices.
Kiss goodbye to the major food retail stores and get along to the markets open from 6.00am to 11.00 am every Saturday at Sharks car park.
Well the 2nd farmers market at Southport Sharks car park is under way.We’ve stocked up on our fruit and veg for the week and had a great coffee and bacon and egg roll. There seemed to be a few more store holders but the number of people wandering around seemed to be down.
If you’re coming down the coast for a break stay with us at Aqualine and get along to the markets. There’s Thai massage, excellent bakery selection, fresh prawns from Iluka and plenty of good quality produce. It’s only early days for the markets and I’m sure as word gets around it will just get bigger and better. There is plenty of parking and definitely room to expand.
There’s nothing better than fresh king prawns straight off the trawler. I came back from a surf at the spit and they’d just opened up at the Gold Coast Co Op at 6.00am. So with the thought of tasty prawns and a glass of wine for lunch foremost in my mind I pulled in.
Medium king prawns were $25 per kg and large kings $28. We’re going to walk over the road from Aqualine with a couple of folding chairs and have fresh prawns, fresh bread (from the local farmers market) and a glass of white by the beach looking straight over the sparkling Broadwater. When you stay at Aqualine Apartments that’s what you can do.
By the way – what are you up to today?
The huge number of people turning out for the official opening of the Rockpools was a sure sign of the popularity of this wonderful addition to the Broadwater Parklands. It is the perfect place for young families as it is shallow throughout and there is plenty of shade. With bbqs and an excellent playground as part of the development you can really make a day of it.
Just another reason to stay at Aqualine Apartments. All of this is within an easy walk from the front door of Aqualine
