GRANT BROWN Mermaid Beach SLSC
Which suburb do you call home? Varsity Lakes.
What makes that suburb the best on the GC? It’s close to everything: Burleigh for a swim, easy to get into the hills to ride my bike and quick access to the M1 if I want to head to Cooly or across the border.
Fave place to stop, relax for 20 mins and enjoy a morning cuppa? And what treat is on the plate beside your hot bevvie? The Parlour Coffee shop at Burleigh West is my usual stop on my Saturday morning rides. I usually just have a coffee but when I do go back for brekkie I always go for the bacon and eggs.
Fave Gold Coast casual dining location? What’s on the menu? Mermaid Beach Surf Club is my pick for good quality meal - either the grilled Barramundi or a chicken parmi.
You’re planning a fun, local night out with your mates? Which three locations top your list and why? Mermaid Beach Surf Club for a meal and a few beers. Metricon Stadium to watch a game especially when a team from Adelaide visits. Otherwise a backyard barbie with a few Coopers Sparkling.
Best local spot for family hangs and why? We like to head up to Mt Tamborine for an early morning walk followed by breakfast the Spice of Life Café. Otherwise we head down to Cooly or Rainbow Bay.
Fave Gold Coast shopping destination? Robina Town Centre - easy to get in and out, has everything you need and close to home.
