Commonwealth Games Accommodation Near Swimming and Triathlon

COm GAmes Aquatic Centre Stands nearly completedIMG_0580Accommodation near the Commonwealth Games Swimming and Triathlon Venues.

The Commonwealth Games deadline is fast approaching. There is a hive of activity all around us at Aqualine Apartments at Southport on the Gold Coast. The photos attached show the views of both the Optus Gold Coast Aquatic Centre and the stages for the Triathlon and Marathon course.

As the photo shows the 10,000 seat arrangement for the Commonwealth Games swimming has become a very prominent feature of the landscape as it towers above the Broadwater Parklands. From our balconies our guests will almost feel like they are sitting in the grandstands and we are sure the atmosphere will be electric.

Aqualine Apartments is in a prime location to allow our guests to soak up the atmosphere the Commonwealth Games will offer and view the Triathlon and Marathon events directly from the balconies of their apartments. As can be seen in the photo the grandstand and finish line are directly in front of us at Aqualine Holiday Apartments.

It’s the ultimate Family Holiday opportunity so if you are attending these events be sure to check out the traffic arrangements in place for the games.

Bring on the games – it’s going to be great!!!

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.

Thai Magik Review, Chirn Park – Southport

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.

Koncubine Esspresso Bar, Chirn Park Southport

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, Southport

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.
