Broadbeach is a suburb of the Gold Coast. It wasn't until the construction of Lennon's Broadbeach Hotel (now the site of the Oasis Hotel and Shopping Centre) in 1955 that development in the area began to increase.
Development in the area today mostly incorporates low rise structures, consisting of single bedroom houses and apartment blocks.
Broadbeach is home to Queensland's largest shopping centre, Pacific Fair, which serves as the regional public transport hub. The area is also home to the Conrad Jupiters Casino, the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre and the Oasis Shopping Centre. Well known apartment blocks include Beach Haven, Niecon Plaza, the Hi-Ho Motel, Belle Maison, Bel Air and Air on Broadbeach.
A monorail connects the Oasis Shopping Centre with Conrad Jupiters Casino, however the system is strictly privatised.
The Gold Coast Oceanway provides pedestrians and cyclists access along the beaches of Broadbeach.
