IT DOESN’T GET MUCH MORE ‘QUEENS­LAND’ THAN SUN­DAY ARVO AT YOUR LO­CAL SURF CLUB – IT’S PRAC­TI­CALLY TRA­DI­TION. AND WHY NOT? CHEAP MEALS, COLDIES AND GOOD VIBES ALL ‘ROUND, PLUS PROFITS GO DI­RECTLY TO SURF LIFE­SAV­ING SER­VICES. ACE. MER­MAID BEACH SLSC

Seen as ‘the lo­cals club’, Mer­maid Beach boasts a panoramic, glass-en­closed bal­cony over­look­ing Hedges Av­enue (oth­er­wise known as ‘mil­lion­aire’s row’) and the Pa­cific Ocean. En­joy an icy cold beer from their im­pres­sive se­lec­tion while watch­ing pass­ing whales, or let the kids run ram­pant in the kids’ room – which comes com­plete with free Playsta­tions and a jun­gle gym – or hit the Bal­cony for live en­ter­tain­ment ev­ery Sun­day arvo. And while you’re tuck­ing into their fa­mous coconut bar­ra­mundi or salt and pep­per cala­mari, you can feel con­fi­dent that you’re sup­port­ing your lo­cal com­mu­nity, too.

“Profits gen­er­ated from the Mer­maid Beach Sup­port­ers Club go di­rectly into the day to day run­ning of the Life Sav­ing busi­ness on the beach,” says Leigh Mc­conkey, Sup­port­ers Club GM. “So eat, drink and cel­e­brate know­ing you are help­ing our life­savers save lives and pro­vide a valu­able ser­vice to this com­mu­nity.” If it’s ca­sual, re­laxed and fam­ily-friendly food you’re af­ter, North Burleigh Sup­port­ers’ Club has to be your first port of call. Perched on the ab­so­lute beach­front with views from Mi­ami Hill right down to Burleigh Head­land and Snap­per Rocks, their al­fresco beer gar­den – the only one at a Gold Coast surf club – is the per­fect place to watch the surf or en­joy the live mu­sic of their Sun­day Sesh. On the menu, ex­pect your clas­sic club favourites – fish and chips, chicken parmys and hearty roasts – as well as some raved-about sig­na­ture dishes, like their macadamia and spiced chicken salad or seafood, fresh from the trawler. All this, washed down with a se­lec­tion of lo­cal and im­ported beers and a care­fully cu­rated wine list in­clud­ing on tap ‘bar­rel­fresh’ pre­mium wine, means there’s never been a more ap­petis­ing way to pro­vide vi­tal sup­port to the North Burleigh surf com­mu­nity. Funds raised from food and bev­er­ages sold at the Sup­port­ers’ Club go to­wards vol­un­teer train­ing, life­sav­ing equip­ment and the beach pa­trollers who watch over the near 200,000 North Burleigh beach-go­ers ev­ery sum­mer.
