5 Top Picnic Spots on the Gold Coast
It's Summer! Grab the family or that special someone and head out for a picnic!
Here's 5 of our favourite picnic spots on the the Gold Coast.
1. Kurrawa Park, Broadbeach
The Broadbeach parkland offers the perfect spot for a picnic, sprawl out on the grass with the beach just metres away for a post picnic swim. There's also a great all-abilities playground where the kids will have hours of fun while you watch on from under the shade of a tree. All of the cafes and restaurants of Broadbeach are also just a short walk away, so you can grab a coffee for that sunrise breakfast picnic.
2. Burleigh Headland
For a picnic with a view, find a spot on the headland and watch the surfers while you eat. During the whale season (May to November) it's also a good vantage point for whale watching. If you're looking to work up a hunger or work off that feast ... then take the scenic coastal walk that winds around from Burleigh Headland to Tallebudgeera Creek and back. There's also plenty of playgrounds, BBQ facilities and shops on hand for a hot coffee or cold ice-cream.
3. Gold Coast Regional Botanic Gardens
Open all year from 5am to 7pm, this free entry garden is a wonderful place to explore nature and unwind with a picnic. There are beautiful gardens to discover including The Butterfly Garden, Rose Garden and The Sensory Garden, there's also a children's playground and plenty of shady areas to spread out and enjoy your day.
4. Evandale Park, Gold Coast Arts Centre
Located just behind Surfers Paradise at the Gold Coast Arts Centre, this park offers tranquil views over the Nerang River and a popular swimming lagoon that's perfect for a dip in the summer.
