Main Beach

Main Beach, situated at the northern end of the Gold Coast, was named in quite a literal sense as the main beach to the town of Southport. For a slice of history of the area, visit the Heritage-Listed bathing pavilion built in 1934. It still stands today, retaining its historical charm but converted into a casual beach cafe, with retro touches everywhere you look. Away from the beach, Tedder Avenue boasts the glitz and glamour of Gold Coast life with exclusive restaurants, bars, and upmarket boutiques. Southport Spit to the north hosts even more shopping, style, luxury hotels, and the Southport Yacht Club.
