Local Guide

Although the accommodations at Phoenician Resort might be so wonderfully comfortable and luxurious you don’t want to leave your apartment, it would be a shame to stay inside the entire length of your stay and miss the local attractions.

Broadbeach has made a name for itself as a dining mecca, so if international cuisine is your thing, you can sample some of the culinary creations found at the numerous local  gourmet restaurants, cafès, bistros, delis and brasseries. No matter what whets your appetite and titillates your taste buds, you are sure to find it in this food lover’s dream.

Jupiter’s Casino will bewitch and bedazzle you 24/7 with its world class night clubs, cabarets and entertainment designed to captivate and enthrall. Don’t forget to see if Lady Luck is with you while you’re there! Who knows? You might hit the jackpot and go back home considerably richer than when you arrived.

Family entertainment isn’t lacking in Broadbeach; with roving entertainers, acrobats and musicians making the entire area one big street fair to be enjoyed by all ages. In addition, there are year round festivals, performances and community events that are fun for one and all.

Naturally, no listings of local attractions in the Broadbeach area would be complete without mentioning its incredible beaches. Immaculate, inviting and patrolled for your safety, the beaches around Phoenician Resort will enchant you with inviting, warm, white sand and the irresistible appeal of clear, sparkling blue water. Kurrawa Beach is a perennial favorite and hosts the Australian Surf Life Saving Championship, one of the nation’s largest competitions.
