Gold Coast Broadwaterway

If you thought the Oceanway was the only coastal path worth exploring, think again!

The Gold Coast Broadwaterway is a 22-kilometre network of pathways around the foreshores of the Gold Coast Broadwater.

The Broadwaterway incorporates:

The Spit

Where the Broadwater meets the Pacific Ocean, visit one of the Coast's most popular off leash dog beaches or go for a sail between Wave Break Island and South Stradbroke Island.

Marine Stadium

Take a dip in this calm cove and marvel at the houseboats dotted across the water.

Pelican Beach at Main Beach

Bring a kayak or stand up paddle board down to explore these calm waters and enjoy the view of all the superyachts in the marina.

Southport Broadwater Parklands

Explore everything this large community park has to offer, from a marine-themed water park to walking trails and eateries.


Marvel at the Surfers Paradise skyline or enjoy the calm still waters with the backdrop of sandy islands along this scenic path.

Harley Park & Biggera Waters

Grab some fish and chips and soak up the serenity of calm waters in this relaxed part of the Gold Coast.

Runaway Bay & Hollywell

Pick a broadwater esplanade to visit for a quiet swim and sunbathe.

Paradise Point

Choose a park along the Esplanade for a spot of picnicking or dine in one of the many cafes and restaurants along the boulevard.

For the anglers, great fishing spots include the Gold Coast Seaway, Loders Creek, Biggera Creek, the Runaway Bay canal entrances and the Anne Jackson Park frontage of the Coomera River.
