Palm Beach is a suburb on the Gold Coast in Queensland. It sits between the idyllic Tallebudgera Creek and Currumbin Creek. Streets along the highway are named from first to twenty-eighth starting at the Southern end of the area and each one terminates at the highway.
Palm Beach is unique for its proximity to the Pacific M1 Motorway, and is predominately residential and tourist accommodation with some of the Gold Coast’s most prestigious homes lining the Jefferson Lane strip along the shore.
The area has become popular in recent years due to the number of trendy cafés and restaurants that have popped up, including scattered fashionable boutique and home ware stores. Palm Beach is patrolled by the Palm Beach Surf Life Saving Club, a local haunt and popular place for residents. One of the Gold Coasts few Centrelinks is housed here and the suburb has numerous local conveniences.
There are a number of family friendly parks in the suburb, Elizabeth Slopper Gardens Park situated on Laguna Lake, featuring a large children’s area with play equipment, picnic and BBQ facilities and the Pirate Park, a renowned favourite spot, sitting on Currumbin Creek, with a cafe and large expanses of green along the inlet to relax.
Located at the northern end of Palm Beach on Tallebudgera Creek is Tallebudgera Recreational Camp, a national fitness camp visited by children throughout Queensland, which also houses the Tallebudgera Beach School, an outdoor education centre and the largest Surf Education School in Queensland. Delivering camps, day programs, farm campus programs, and a registered Training Organisation, the school tackles aquatic and surf safety, personal development, problem solving, team building and leadership together with Indigineous cultural activities.
