Sense the true spirit of a beachside community at Tugun, one of the Gold Coast’s original villages.
Known for its enduring character and sense of community, Tugun has long been a popular choice for Gold Coast holidaymakers and is now home to a busy retail and business precinct. Accommodation is mostly beachfront low-rise apartments and holiday flats, all of which are family friendly and affordable.
Tugun is only a few minutes’ drive from Gold Coast Airport. Its beach stretches between Bilinga to the south and Currumbin in the North, separated by Flat Rock Creek and its beautiful beachside park. This is one of the locals’ favourite spots for family picnics, a game of beach cricket and is often the venue for weddings.
Families with young children find the convenience of having everything on their doorstep an added attraction of this relaxed and casual beachside location. Regular public transport is available throughout the Southern Gold Coast, and organised shuttles can take holidaymakers to theme parks and other Gold Coast attractions if required.
Like most Southern Gold Coast villages, it has its own beachfront surf club and patrolled beach, plus an extensive strip of shops, restaurants, hotels and retail stores.
Tugun is the location of one of the Gold Coast’s largest private hospitals, John Flynn Private Hospital. It offers a comprehensive range of health care services, including 24 hour emergency clinic.
Extensive parkland and open spaces are highly regarded features of this friendly village. There are sporting clubs located at Tugun, including Rugby League, and the Tugun skateboard bowl is a popular spot for young locals.
