Gold Coast Suburb Profile - Runaway Bay

Runaway Bay is primarily a waterfront suburb, with most homes having canal access. The homes along the canal vary from large mansions to more less imposing one story, family friendly pads.

The eastern boundary is the Broadwater and these beaches are protected from the Ocean by South Stradbroke Island.

All of these factors make Runaway Bay a prestigious area for boaties. Where else on the Gold Coast can you access the Broadwater and the Seaway in just 3 minutes?

The area is not only popular with boating enthusiasts as it is also located to major shopping centres, great restaurants and pretty parkland.
