After surfing on the beach, visiting the holiday attractions and tasting the award-winning local cuisine, one of the best ways to wind down is with a picnic in one of the Gold Coast’s many picturesque picnic spots.
From The Spit to Coolangatta, Queensland’s beautiful Gold Coast offers more than a few exciting locations to tuck into a picnic with stunning surrounding views, and our Broadbeach resort accommodation at Aruba Surf puts the best of these just moments away!
Macintosh Island Park
A stone’s throw from Surfers Paradise Beach, Macintosh Island is home to one of the Gold Coast’s most relaxing parks, known locally as Peacock Park for its friendly population of peacocks. With running rivulets and walking paths, Macintosh Island Park is an ideal location to stroll before kicking back with a picnic.
Burleigh Head National Park
Reach Burleigh Head National Park in just a 15-minute drive from Broadbeach for a picnic in the rainforest! This subtropical oasis next to Burleigh Beach isn’t to be ignored for bushwalkers casual and experienced, rich in flora, native wildlife and plenty of secluded areas to settle down with a picnic.
The Spit Gold Coast
The Spit in the northernmost part of the Gold Coast offers scenic coastal views and a choice of oceanfront parks ideal for throwing down a picnic blanket. These include east-facing Philip Park near Main Beach, as well as Doug Jennings Park which faces Wave Break Island and Runaway Bay.
Overlooking Southport Marina, the Broadwater Parklands is a well-maintained public park on the Gold Coast that’s loved by locals and holidaymakers alike. With a view of the passing yachts, enjoy a picnic close to the waterfront or under a tree, which you can follow up with an unforgettable shopping experience at nearby Australia Fair.
Currumbin Creek is well worth the 20-minute drive from our Broadbeach family apartments, a popular location for kayaking, swimming, fishing and picnicking. Enjoy the wide range of recreational outdoor activities Currumbin Creek has to offer, then tuck in with a surrounding view of the creek at the water’s edge.
Running next to Kurrawa Beach Broadbeach, Kurrawa Park is a central beachfront park on the Gold Coast that sets the scene for sunbathing, taking a stroll and finding shade among the trees. With a picnic at the ready, find one of the many spots in Kurrawa Park that look across the beach and ocean for the best possible experience!
