At the northern end of the city, close to iconic Surfers Paradise and two minutes drive from Main Beach, Southport was officially the first settlement on the Gold Coast.

The Southport shoreline covers nearly three kilometres of parks, walkways and leafy suburbs that fringe the edges of the area, giving it that special holiday feel. Family activities, cultural events and recreation have become a key focus for residents of Southport, with many parks and outdoor recreational areas adding value to the community.​​​
