Best Accommodation to View Commonwealth Games Triathlon and Marathon

Nearly set for the Games.

Best View and Accommodation to View the Commonwealth Games Triathlon and Marathon


With the games only a couple of weeks away, the stands are being built for the start and finish of the Triathlon, Thursday 5th – Saturday 7th April, and the Marathon Sunday the 15th April. As you know the Aqualine Apartments is the perfect location for a holiday in Southport on the Gold Coast, but even more so when the Games is on. There is no question we have the best seats in the house for these two events. What’s more is, we still have apartments available for the Marathon.

The Triathlon Course

Undoubtedly the best accommodation on the Gold Coast to view the Commonwealth Games Triathlon and Marathon

A sprint course for the Triathlon will be used for the first time at a Commonwealth Games. The course will feature a 750m swim leg, 20km bike leg and a 5km run leg:

  • The 750m swim leg will commence from a start pontoon on the Broadwater with an anticlockwise course bringing the athletes into the transition area
  • The 20km bike leg will consist of a four-lap technical course which stretches from Southport North to Biggera Waters and back
  • 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.
