Our Location

Our Main Beach Apartments are located only 5 minutes North of the hustle and bustle of the glitter strip, Surfers Paradise and 5 minutes South of the Southport CBD. We are also within close proximity to one of the Gold Coast’s Major Theme Parks Sea World, Marina Mirage and The Spit.

The Crest is ideally positioned on the track of the Gold Coast 600 with prime viewing of the Breaker Street corner from majority of our balconies and from the concourse. The Crest’s location meets every motor sport enthusiast desires.

The Gold Coast Marathon is also held only minutes away from The Crest Resort, with the Start and Finish lines occurring in Southport. The Crest is convenient for all participants and spectators alike that will be attending the major event.


The Crest is approximately 40 minutes from Coolangatta Airport and 20 minutes from Helensvale Station, which directly connects onto the Brisbane Airport – Varsity Lakes AirTrain.

We are conveniently located only an easy 5 minute walk from the G: Link Tram. The TX buses to and from Movie World, SeaWorld, Wet n Wild and Dream World and Harbour town are also at our front door step. The Crest also has Tourist Go Cards available for purchase at Reception.



The Crest is perfectly positioned between the beach and the heart and soul of Main Beach, Tedder Avenue. Tedder Avenue is the cosmopolitan heart of the Gold Coast which hosts a number of international alfresco restaurants and cafes, boutique shops and convenience stores to cater to every holiday makers dream.


The Spit is located North of Main Beach, which is prime for boating, fishing and diving enthusiasts. The Spit is located only 10 minutes from The Crest, and is the ideal spot to take the family for the weekend. The Spit is also home to the annual Power Boat Championships in October.


The Marina Mirage is located adjacent to the Palazzo Versace and the Sheraton Grand Mirage Resort, and holds a number of prestigious restaurants and boutique shops. The Marina Mirage also holds a weekly Saturday Farmers Market and is home to live music at Fisherman’s Wharf or The Southport Yacht Club on a Friday, Saturday and Sunday night.

    I stayed at the Crest Apartments as I had to be on the Gold Coast for a conference. I found the staff to be very welcoming, the room clean and tidy, and it was in a great location with many restaurants and cafes only a short walk away.

    Our stay at The Crest Apartments was wonderful! With 2 young kids we were in the outdoor and indoor pool everyday during our 5 night stay. The location was perfect - short walk to the beach, short drive to Cavill Ave but quiet enough for us to relax and enjoy our holiday. The apartment was clean and provided everything we needed. We will be back!

    My partner and I stayed here for a weekend for a break, so glad we chose this place. The apartment was perfect, clean, had everything we needed and wanted, great view and it is nestled in the really nice area of main beach. The staff were really friendly and helpful and the price was great, very reasonable for what you get. Highly recommend this to all

    We have stayed at many apartments on the GC and after 2 nights at the Crest, it is my favourite. The staff are lovely and helpful and very efficient. Great location and facilities for all ages. This may sound weird to mention but I couldn't believe how fast the lifts were. Can't wait to come back for a longer stay!
