Runaway Bay

Protected from rough ocean seas by South Stradbroke Island to the east, and surrounded by deep canals to the west, Runaway Bay is a popular destination for keen fishermen and boaties alike.

By boat, Runaway Bay is just three minutes from the Southport Broadwater and Seaway, taking in spectacular views the towering Gold Coast skyline.

Runaway Bay: Where To Go / Sightseeing

The local marina is a great place for lunch and to admire the yachts and luxury cruisers at berth. For anglers, this is also the spot to step on board a fishing charter for a day on the water. Choose from deep sea reef and game fishing or fishing in the calm water estuary. With luck you might find yourself dining on fresh local snapper, kingfish, pearl perch, tuna, wahoo or mackerel. Deep sea fishermen can pit their strength and will against a mighty marlin or sailfish.

Explore the beautiful waterways at your own leisure by embarking on a houseboat holiday. Houseboats are available for hire at Runaway Bay and make for a novel and budget-friendly getaway with family or friends.

Runaway Bay: Shopping

Away from the water, Runaway Bay has a large shopping village, aquatic centre and sports centre and is just five minutes’ drive from one of the state’s biggest brand direct outlet shopping centres.
