The Broadwater region on the Gold Coast is one of the best and most versatile natural protected waterways in the country. The waters are calm, making it the ideal playground for all kinds of Watersports and water activities. Boaties love it, fishermen adore it and those seeking some thrills live for it.
This gorgeous body of water stretches from Southport all the way north beyond Paradise Point, where it eventually meets up with Moreton Bay. Some of the Gold Coast suburbs which have the pleasure of residing on the Broadwater include:
On the ocean side the Broadwater is protected by South Stradbroke Island and the Spit at Main Beach. These two major land masses ensure the ocean swells stay out at sea and don’t enter this calm and serene paradise. And with Wave Break Island blocking any swells from the passage of the Seaway, the Broadwater really is the place to be any time of the year.
It’s got something to offer everyone and is surrounded by some beautiful man-made parklands in Southport and Labrador, as well as the natural beauty offered up by the Spit and South Stradbroke Island. There is even some wildlife above the water, mainly birds, and there are tiny uninhabited islands you can visit where many birds like to flock to.
