Family Friendly Activities in Southport

Whether you’re looking for somewhere to relax with family or somewhere to explore and get a little more of a thrill, Aqualine Apartments on Southport’s Broadwater is the perfect place to stay.

Located within walking distance to many attractions and parks, the Broadwater parklands make for an unforgettable family holiday experience.

To get you started, we’ve put together a list of family friendly activities that both kids and parents are sure to love.

AbraKiDazzle – The Gold Coast’s largest indoor play arena for kids up to the age of 10 is a great place to get out of the sun for a few hours while allowing the kids to still run off some energy while the parents can enjoy the serenity of the cafe.

Holoverse – A world first hologram arcade using advanced technology to project objects that float around you creating an experience you’ll never forget. You can grab a pizza while you’re there and enjoy the arcade tables for an afternoon of fun new experiences.

Broadwater Parklands & Rock pools – Located less than a 10 minute walk from Aqualine Apartments, the Broadwater parklands offer a multitude of play equipment for everyone to enjoy, including a jumping pillow and pedal bike monorail that the kids absolutely love! If you’re visiting during the warmer months, the Rock pools make a great place to cool off after playing on the park and beach. Walking paths along the water make it super easy to get to and there are even a few cafes along the way to stop off for a bite to eat and a cold drink.

Escape Hunt – A game perfect for families with older kids who love to solve puzzles, work together to get out before the time is up!

Paradise Jet Boating – Take some time to head out on the water and enjoy the high speeds and sharp turns that get the blood pumping and put a smile on everyone’s faces.

Gold Coast Jet Ski Safaris – Take a tour of the Broadwater by getting as close to it as you can while staying (mostly) dry on a Jet Ski. After the tour, grab a bite to eat and enjoy basking in the afternoon sun.

Spirit Whale Watching – From June through to September, join the crew on Spirit of the Gold Coast to embark on a whale watching adventure. With a promise of guaranteed whale sightings or a free return trip, it entices everyone to get out on the open water to see nature up close and personal at its best.

Sea World – We certainly couldn’t leave this one off the list! Sea World is an amazing way to get up close with Polar Bears, Penguins, Sharks, Dolphins and more while enjoying shows, food and rides! We suggest the Glass Bottom Boat tour through Shark Bay. Not only will you learn a tonne about the species, but you’ll also get to see some massive sharks swim right underneath you, as well as a massive tortoise whose aging incredibly well!

We hope this list inspires you for your next holiday!

The parklands offer some beautiful walks, added to this Gold Coast Council lays on many events and activities for the family, such as movies in the park. It’s just a wonderful, relaxing place to spend some time away.

Getting Married

chapel-image-2

Thinking of getting married or renewing your vows.

Ever thought about the Rotary Chapel on the Broadwater, that was moved from the old Gold Coast Hospital site. If you are, then why don’t you get your guests to stay at the spacious, self contained units at The Aqualine Apartments.

The boutique little chapel is in an idyllic setting in the Broadwater Parklands over looking the Broadwater, just up from the Commonwealth Games pool. Pop down and have a look, you will fall in love with the setting. Here is the web address to booking the Chapel,

https://rotarychapel.com.au

Our apartments are five minutes walk away. We had guests attend a wedding there a couple of weeks ago. They were raving about the location of the apartments, everyone else had to drive, and they simply strolled to the venue. So you don’t have to look for Plan B, because you have Plan A in place. A standing for Aqualine, you know it makes sense. Hope to see you soon.

Working Away, Doing Business In Southport

If you are looking for a place to stay whilst working in Southport, The Aqualine Apartments is the place to stay. We offer more than a fancy designer room with beds to sleep in, and not much more. We offer rooms that have enough space in them to give you a little bit of privacy, when required, just like home. All our apartments are self contained, either one or two bedroom. All have Spa baths in them,the two bedroom apartments have a walk in shower in the second bathroom. All apartments have balconies, either with Broadwater Views or a view of the pool. All the apartments are self contained with cooker, fridge, washer and dryers, giving you the flexibility to do as you please, eat in or eat out. All apartments also have free internet, Foxtel, free parking and are secure. Your key will only allow you access to your floor in the lift, as well as the basement, where most of the parking is and the ground floor, where reception is, as well as car parking for vehicles that are higher than 1.9 metres.

header_image_2

We have an excellent location here, directly across the road is the Broadwater Parklands and the main public boating access to the Broadwater. If you staying here, we recommend you get up early and go for a walk or run round the Parklands before breakfast, or even get breakfast whilst out. I find this the best time of day to exercise, it makes me feel refreshed, and sets me up for the working day. Then on an evening after work, you can just kick back and relax, and make the most of your facilities in your apartment, or have a dip in the pool.

All in all, if you are doing business in and around Southport, at the University or the Hospital, The Aqualine is an ideal place to be. The University and the Hospital are 10 minutes drive in the car, however parking can be a little bit expensive in that precinct. The get the most out of the city, use the G-Link, the nearest stop is a mere 10 minutes walk from the Aqualine, trams run every seven and half minutes during peak periods, and the University and Hospital are only a ten minute journey.

  • The 5km run leg will consist of two 2.5km laps of a flat and fast course between Southport and Labrador.

The Marathon Course

The Marathon course starts and finishes at the Southport Broadwater Parklands. The 42.195km course will take runners to a northern turn at Runaway Bay (4.4km), a loop back past the Southport Broadwater Parklands to a southern turn at Burleigh Heads (25.3km), before a final stretch north to the finish line.

We highly recommend a visit to the Southport Surf Life Saving Club to eat and drink while taking in the spectacular beach views Main Beach has to offer. If the surf is not your scene call in and enjoy the ambience of the Southport Yacht Club just 3 kilometres from Aqualine Apartments.

There is still time to capitalise on our direct Accommodation Specials and beat the crowds in March before the Commonwealth Games or in May following the Commonwealth Games.

Due to late cancellations we have space for The Commonwealth Games

We have a two bedroom apartment available for the length of the games. We also have one and two beds available for shorter periods, please contact us via this website, or ring 0755915504.

We are handily placed right on the Broadwater at Marine Parade. Directly across the road is the start and finish to the Marathon and the Triathlon, I have watched the ITU Triathlon the last few times it has been here, and its really exciting to watch. The organisers have made it a spectator event by condensing the course into a number of small circuits, 8 laps of 5km on the bike, and 4 laps of 2.5km for the run, it will be great to watch.

A 10 minute walk from our apartment block is the Gold Coast Aquatic Centre, where the swimming for the Commonwealth Games will be held. I went to watch the last night of the trials last weekend, and it took me 15 minutes to walk to my car, so how lucky will you be staying here.

We are also only a 20 minute walk from the Hockey on Musgrave Avenue, on the way there, you can call in one of the numerous cafes in Chirn Park, and on the way back stop for a drink in one of the bars.

We are also close to the light rail, the nearest stop is 10 minutes away on Scarborough Street, nip into Chinatown before you get on. The light rail now goes from Broadbeach in the south, to Helensvale in the north. Helensvale is also where you can transfer to a train to go to Brisbane. On the way to Helensvale, there are stops for Griffith Uni, the closest to the games village, and the Gold Coast University  Hospital.

With road closures causing transport to be slow, walking and using the light rail will be the in thing.
