Broadbeach gets boost from Good Charlotte’s Benji Madden

By Georgie Ziedan

The appeal of Broadbeach and the wider Gold Coast area is no secret in Australia – and recently the Queensland destination got a ringing endorsement from an international celebrity.

Benji Madden of Good Charlotte, in an interview with Fairfax, said that the holiday hot spot had a tonne of fun hangouts.

"I like Broadbeach and Surfers Paradise. I've got some friends down there, so I catch up with them. To be right by the beach where there's a ton of shops and restaurants, you're like, 'Oh, thank God, we're in a place where there's like a bar to go hang out at'," he said.

Performing at the Gold Coast V8 supercar event this month, Madden said that he's glad he's in a part of the world where he can do so many things.

On Friday the 19th, Broadbeach will get a dose of adrenaline when the Armor All Gold Coast 600 comes to town. The race, which weaves itself through the streets of the Gold Coast, can be seen from the higher floors of apartments in Broadbeach.

Broadbeach and the wider Gold Coast will be humming to the sound of horsepower this weekend which proves something interesting is always happening in Broadbeach.
