The Crest Apartments, Main Beach, 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 Apartments are ideally positioned on the track of the Gold Coast 600 with prime viewing of the Breaker Street/ Serisier Avenue corner from the majority of our balconies and from the concourse. The Crest’s location meets every motor sport enthusiasts desires.
The Gold Coast Marathon is also held only minutes away from The Crest Apartments, with the Start and Finish lines occurring in Southport. The Crest Apartments are convenient for all participants and spectators alike that will be attending the major event.
The Crest Apartments are approximately 40 minutes drive from Coolangatta Airport and 20 minutes drive from Helensvale Train Station, (the train directly connects to Brisbane Airport). There is also a direct link at the train station onto The G:Link light rail which will bring you to Main Beach. The G:Link stop is a 2 block walk from The Crest Apartments.
From Coolangatta (OOL) and Brisbane (BNE) there are a number of public and private coach operators. You do not need to pre-book as they meet most flights and can be found just outside the arrivals area of each airport.
The TX (theme park express) buses to and from Movie World, SeaWorld, Wet n Wild, Dream World and Harbour town are close by. The G:Link will take you to Broadbeach in the South and Helensvale in the North. We have Tourist Go Cards available for purchase at Reception.
Tedder Avenue, The Spit and Marina Mirage
The Crest Apartments are 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 need.
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 Apartments 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 and the Magic Millions Polo matches in January.
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. Marina Mirage also holds a weekly Saturday Farmers Market and is home to live music at Fisherman’s Wharf or The Southport Yacht Club most weekends.
