In an idyllic position midway between the vibrant and bustling Surfers Paradise and the laidback foodies hub that is Broadbeach, you’ll get the best of both worlds with an Ipanema Holiday Resort stay.
Shopping and Dining to delight
Foodies will delight at the wide range of offerings available, with highly rated restaurants and cafes at your fingertips! Cultural cuisines, Australian classics, and fine dining opportunities await for even the pickiest food lover.
Cavill Avenue and the surrounding streets offer up everything you could home for, from sushi to tapas, pub meals to pizza. Enjoy a leisurely meal and browse through the stores that line the streets. If that’s not quite enough, you’ll be spoilt for choice with the variety of indoor shopping centres such as the newly upgraded Pacific Fair shopping centre, the delightful waterfront Marina Mirage shopping centre, and the Oasis shopping centre on the Broadbeach Esplanade.
An incredible place to visit
Just steps from our holiday resort, the world famous Surfers Paradise Beach is a picture perfect place to swim, Jet Ski, scuba dive and surf. If a more relaxing day is on the cards, you’ll love a leisurely stroll along the coastline and watching the waves roll in. Crave adventure in the rainforest wilderness? A day trip from the coast takes you into the tropical paradise that is the Gold Coast hinterland. Enjoy a short or challenging bushwalk, and hunt for waterfalls and native wildlife.
Theme Parks and Family Fun
One of the big draw cards for a Gold Coast visit is of course the incredible theme parks. Whether it’s chasing thrills on the rides or and engaging in animal encounters at Dreamworld, marvelling at the incredible marine wildlife and shows at Seaworld, making a splash at Wet ‘n’ Wild water park, or immersing yourself in all things movie related at Warner Bros. Movie World, there’s just no shortage of fun to be had!
Animal lovers will adore exploring Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, Tiger Island and the Dreamworld wildlife area, Outback Spectacular, David Fleay Wildlife Park, and Paradise Country Aussie farm experience. There’s also no shortage of wildlife in their natural habitat. Delight in watching dolphins playing in the surf, and whales on their annual migration. Wallabies, possums, and dozens of bird species can be found in the bushland around the Gold Coast.
The Star Casino
The newly upgraded Gold Coast Star Casino is an absolute delight, with a huge range of restaurants to indulge in mouthwatering cuisine, your pick of bars to enjoy, live theatre, comedy, and music, and of course the casino itself. Make sure you stop by on your Gold Coast stay, it really is like stepping into another world! Thinking of booking a stay in Broadbeach or Surfers Paradise? Check out our apartments here.
