Broadwater Parklands


Stretching three kilometres of the Broadwater in Southport, is the Gold Coast's world class, Broadwater Parklands (The parklands). These spaces cater for everything from large scale events to small family gatherings.

There are plenty of shady spots for a picnic. Barbecue facilities are available to use for free or hire for that special occasion to secure your use. For a more intimate occasion the Pier and Rooftop offer a unique event space. Both feature the spectacular back drop of the Surfers Paradise skyline.

Kids will love running around our vast open spaces, playing on one of the playgrounds or splashing around in the popular, fun-filled Rockpools – a great way to cool down on a summer day.

With three different playgrounds within the parklands there is something to suit every child and age.

The Northern play attraction will be subject to a multi-million dollar upgrade in the 2020-21 financial year, with additional parking being added in that section to cater for park patrons.

The Adventure play attraction sits in the centre of the park just near The Rockpools. This playground caters for younger children with a make-believe pirate ship and interactive learn, play equipment.

Washington Waters play attraction sits adjacent to Australia Fair. Fly through the air on the Flying Fox or take a tandem pedal ride on the monorail. The play equipment in this playground caters to the older child who enjoys a rigorous and energetic play session.
