After 13 months of construction, the brand new Kurrawa Surf Club is swinging open its doors at Broadbeach today!
The new world-class facility features a modern design with improved Surf Lifesaving training rooms and amenities, an expansive dining area and bar with 230-degree views of Kurrawa Beach and an all club multipurpose area.
Building Committee Chairman, Stewart Palmer, said it was a milestone project the whole community could be proud of.

“The Broadbeach precinct is a key destination for residents and visitors to the Gold Coast and Kurrawa Surf Club will continue to play a key role in providing a quality hospitality venue for its guests as well as continuing our long and rewarding history as a successful Surf Life Saving Club in a state-of-the-art facility” he said.
For the first time in the club’s 60 year history, the new facility allows for both the Surf Club and Supporters Club operations and administration to be housed in the same building, along with increased on-site storage capacity for surf lifesaving equipment and vehicles, ease of access to the beach, and training and recreation rooms for Nippers and Senior Life Savers.
Surf Club President Michael McSweeney said it was a dream come true to have the space and access now available with the new Club.
“We’re thrilled that Surf Lifesaving continues to be valued by residents with an increase in sign ups each year for the last few years. The new Club enables us to continue to serve the community and welcome new members each year.”
Both locals and visitors can make the most of the expansive open plan dining area with seating for over 400 people, including bar seating, with the bistro open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner as well as a buffet breakfast on weekends.
A new ground level café, Tower 28, will also provide beachgoers with a convenient option to stop for a takeaway coffee or a bite to eat in the spacious undercover forecourt area adjacent to the Oceanway.
The previous club building is due to be demolished to make way for green space and parklands, which will be known as Kurrawa Common.
