Which suburb do you call home?
What makes that suburb the best on the GC?
Mermaid is so central to everything my life is based around! Kurrawa Surf Club is just down the road, Pacific Fair is a two-minute car trip, and there’s coffee shops and restaurants every 100m. I’m just a short drive away from the endless options of beaches for whatever the surf conditions are. Most of all it’s the neighbours and friendly faces I see every day that make Mermaid Beach the best on the GC.
Fave place to stop, relax for 20 mins and enjoy a morning cuppa? And what treat is on the plate beside your hot bevvie?
Ocean 4218 in Mermaid Beach. They are all about saving the ocean, one coffee at a time. They have delicious healthy and well-priced options all day long. I can’t go past their acai smoothie with a chocolate almond protein ball.

Pacific Fair, everything in the one stop with plenty of parking.
