Situated on the southern most part of the British colony of Queensland, Southport still harbors the old world charm of Australia. Carrying on the tradition of being Gold Coast’s earliest and most fashionable seaside destinations, the place is home to one of the Gold Coast's largest shopping complexes, Australia Fair, as well as happening cafes and restaurants, Southport Yacht Club, exclusive Marina Mirage boutiques and buzzing nightlife. The place was originally called as Nerang Creek Heads, however, its name was changed to replicate the English resort of the same name. The region also nestles beautiful parklands bordered along the Broadwater, rendering immense opportunities for recreation and surfing. North to it lies the famous Surfers Paradise as Southport overlooks the shimmering Broadwater and the Southport Spit which divides the Broadwater from the Pacific Ocean.
This district in Gold Coast is a mélange of history, glamour, sea side activities and languid culture reflected in its parklands.
