We ate at a number of different places around Broadbeach - Thai, Italian, Indian and French (very nice!) - but of course, for views, the surf clubs can't be beaten. And the food is often quite good, too.
In this regard, we had lunch at the Tugun SLSC on one occasion, and dropped in again on the day of our departure for a coffee to fill in time on the way to the airport.
You could get used to life here. In fact, judging by some of the other patrons, there are a few seniors around who have done just that!
