Slip into holiday mode when you spend a day exploring Queen Street Village in Southport

We’d love nothing more than to jet off overseas somewhere to eat exceptional food and spend our day in spas or shopping, but the reality is that it’s not always possible to escape from our busy lives. Fortunately for us Gold Coasters, there are pockets of paradise right on our doorstep. Nestled in the heart of Southport lies Queen Street Village, an unassuming oasis brimming with possibilities from dawn until dusk. Savour life’s simple joys by taking a journey through this vibrant haunt.

Kick off your Queen Street Village journey with a guaranteed mood lifter – a little retail therapy – and explore the village boutiques, each offering a unique treasure trove of delights. At Dollie, discover charming attire for you and your little ones from leading brands like Walnut and Quincy Mae. Then, immerse yourself in luxury at Freedom Suites, a premier hair, beauty and wellness hub on the Gold Coast, boasting more than 20 independent freelancers offering their expert services within private suites where pampering takes centre stage. Or if you are keen to keep your mane maintained, look no further than Barber Bros. This espresso-bar-meets-barber has become a hit with locals and tourists alike.

As hunger beckons, let your taste buds embark on a culinary journey at Krish, crowned as Gold Coast’s best Indian restaurant by locals. Here, flavours dance on your palate as each dish tells a story steeped in tradition. Savour every bite of everyone’s go-to dish, butter chicken, or heat things up with a spicy lamb vindaloo as you sink into the cosy ambiance of this Gold Coast favourite.

If the fresh flavours of Vietnam are what you’re craving, hop over to Bun Bun Bao. Using fresh local produce and no MSG or additives, Bun Bun Bao claims to serve up Vietnamese eats just like Mama would make – but better. The banh mi is a must-try – picture yourself biting into a freshly baked, warm, crispy Vietnamese baguette stuffed with the likes of Mama’s Famous Crispy Roast Pork, grilled lemongrass chicken, sticky grilled Vietnamese pork meatballs or tofu and mushroom, plus house-made mayo, pate, and pickled and fresh veggies. 

After a leisurely meal, lose yourself in the magic of the silver screen at Dendy Cinemas. With 11 stylish cinemas and the most recent released movies screening, there’s bound to be a blockbuster that suits everyone’s tastes. 

When the stars fill up the sky, fill up on a sumptuous dinner at Queens Arms, where warmth and hospitality greet you at every turn. Tuck in to barbecue pork ribs with house slaw and chips, or try one of the Queens Arms’ signature share platters piled high with oysters, chicken wings, lamb ribs, calamari, pulled pork, seasoned chips and dipping sauces. 

Keen to explore more? You can find Queen Street Village at 129 Queen Street in Southport.
