Experience the Gold Coast's Epic Eats and Emerging Art Culture

Culture

The Gold Coast City Art Gallery features 20 local, national and international exhibitions each year and is a great place to get inspired. Make sure you also consider the Jellurgal Aboriginal Cultural Centre to experience the amazing culture of the Yumambeh people. But if ‘sun, sand and surf’ is your true culture and religion, head straight to Queensland’s only surfing museum, Surf World. It boasts the largest collection of surfboards, incredible photography capturing the early surf scene, changing beach culture and awesome surfing memorabilia and artwork. Stoked! Another Gold Coast landmark worth a look is the Captain Cook Memorial and Lighthouse at Coolangatta.

From beach culture to art culture

Eat & Drink

For the ultimate night of entertainment, Dracula’s Cabaret Restaurant is a Gold Coast institution while Australian Outback Spectacular Dinner and Show is a whip-cracking good time. The Star Gold Coast Casino has a wealth of dining options and happening night-spots including local favourite The Garden. For Epic steaks, hit Moo Moo at Broadbeach; Glenelg Public House; Harry’s Steak Bistro or Hurricanes in Surfers Paradise. For breaky or a chilled bite, try BSKT Café; Sparrow Eating House; Elk Espresso; Bumbles Café in Surfers or Providore at Marina Mirage. Feeling thirsty? The Burleigh Brewing Company is your go-to or hit the newcomer making waves - Balter in Currumbin. It’s the brainchild and baby of surfing superstar Mick Fanning and his fellow circuit legends Joel Parkinson, Bede Durbidge and Josh Kerr.

Local hot spots on the Gold Coast ‘it’ scene also include The Collective; Burleigh Social; Hellenikas; Koi; Cambus Wallace Cocktail Bar and Feather and Docks but if your looking up the anti, go all out and really impress; you can’t go past the incredibly stunning Rick Shores at Burleigh Heads, the chilled and hip Justin Lane Pizzeria and Bar, the sophisticated Fellini’s at Main Beach and seafood dreamboats - Omeros Brothers at Marina Mirage and The Fish House, Burleigh Heads.
