We stay there for 5 weeks every year in the Christmas/New Year school holidays and the odd weekend through the year. Kim and Paul have improved the park and are great at organising FREE, pancake mornings, movie nights, food trucks and kids events. Amenities are always clean but could do with a bit of modernising. Two pools, jumping pillow, tennis,... More

The photos of Broadwater Tourist Park are misleading. The views of the beach are all misleading, the beach is now where near the park, there are no close ocean views from the Waterfront villas (as depicted in the interior photos of the villas). The final aerial shot is also misleading as the Council has resumed the beach and extended the... More

Hi Alex Thank you for taking the time to post your views on the park. The foreshore development has created a fantastic new grassed area between the east side of the park and the new beautiful beach area. There were no changes to the Loders Creek (Northern) side of the park so we do still have villa's right on the... More

Our first experience at the Southport Broadwater parklands was with or grandchildren. We took them there for the day during school holidays when we were on nanny child minding duties. The area is large, very well planned & provides for a very safe environment for children to enjoy themselves. There are tables at various parts of the parklands that make... More

Right on the Broadwater. Land reclamation work in my opinion hasn't improved the park or taken away from the amenity of it. Looks different but still enjoyable. Amenity blocks are tired-looking and reasonably clean - certainly not 5 star! Staff are efficient. Entertainment in the form of movies every few nights if that interests you. Good for the kids.

We do acknowledge that our 3 amenity blocks are aging however they have received recent cosmetic improvements which have been noted by guests as great improvements and our team works very hard to keep them clean.

There are always plenty to keep the kids occupied, two pools and a jumping castle, and all types of activities, movie nights, complete with food vans, free pancake breakfasts and lots more.

Great, clean and modern park. Loads of activities for the kids over Christmas holidays. Amenities were clean and modern. Two pools, jumping pillow, tennis, bikes for hire. Right on the water. Only negatives was noisy road but we got use to it. And all the pool chairs were broken. We will go back one day we loved it.
