Broadbeach 4218, QLD
Broadbeach Beach (1591E) is a further 1.5 km to the south. Here the beachfront is given over to a reserve, that contains the Broadbeach Surf Life Saving Club, founded in 1935, a large car park and other public amenities (Fig. 4.146 & 4.147).
The eight surf lifesaving clubs and sixteen lifeguard towers attest to the potential hazards along this long beach. Rips are present whenever waves are breaking and deep rip channels may run out from the shoreline. Swim only in patrolled areas and avoid the rip holes and outer trough. Stay close inshore and on the attached portion of the bar.
