gold coast

With so much to see and do here, a holiday could last all year. From theme parks to watersports and lush rainforests, the Gold Coast is famous for its cafes and restaurants and many exciting tourist attractions.

Special Lunch & Dinner Menu


Marina Mirage Seaworld Drive, Main Beach.

Ph: 07 5591 7222

Restaurateurs and talented chefs provide a colourful arena of stylish restaurants that are gaining national recognition. Diverse enough for every taste, age and budget , there is something for everyone whether it be the freshest seafood at the beach, a cup of freshly ground coffee on the waterfront, tea and scones in the hinterland, a night at the theatre, an a la carte menu with silver service or an affordable family restaurant, dine-in or take-away. Dress up if you like, or wander into a cafe straight from the beach, in laid back Gold Coast style. Popular dining precincts include Mariners Cove and Marina Mirage along Seaworld Drive, Elkhorn and Orchid Avenues in Surfers Paradise, Tedder Avenue in Main Beach, Broadbeach, Coolangatta, or try the glittering Gold Coast Highway dotted


queensland’s lively coast

with inexpensive eateries and award winning restaurants. Dine riverside, seaside, on a river cruise, high in the mountains, inside or outside. There are worlds of entertainment to indulge in at the many famous theme parks, star studded shows at service clubs and the casino to add sparkle to holiday nights. Day trippers who venture to the hinterland can delight in quaint tea houses and small restaurants, coffee shops and breakfast banquets, with views of lush gardens, blue lagoons, manicured golf greens, oceans and mountains served as a tempting side order. Aussie ‘bush tucker’ can be sampled at several restaurants where crocodile, ostrich, kangaroo and witjuti grubs are all on the menu. The Gold Coast is supplied with Queensland’s own fresh seafood, tropical fruits and creamy avocados, fresh herbs and salad greens, locally made small goods and Italian style fresh cheeses as well as flavoursome poultry and well crafted pickles, sauces and preserves. This wealth of regional produce features on creative menus and in picnic hampers from delis and gourmet shops. 19
