Sports & Recreation

Enjoying the outdoors is a part of life on the Southern Gold Coast. With beautiful weather year round, ample beachfront and spacious parklands, the Southern Gold Coast is the ideal destination for sport and recreation. There is so much to do – from watersports and beach activities, to walking trails, bike riding, golf and sporting clubs.  

With some of the best point breaks in Australia, and home of the Quiksilver & Roxy Pro's, the Southern Gold Coast is a surfing mecca. Many past and current world champions have their home breaks at Kirra, Coolangatta and Snapper Rocks, and there are consistent waves to be found all the way from Currumbin to Rainbow Bay for all skill levels.  

Southern Gold Coast beaches and waterways are also perfect for swimming, body boarding, standup paddle boarding, kayaking and fishing – and there is plenty of sand to play a game of beach cricket or touch football.   

For a nature walk or a challenging bike ride, head out to the Currumbin Valley, or alternatively take the relaxing stretch along the paved Oceanway from Bilinga to Coolangatta. View the Walks and Lookouts guide for more ideas.
