Holiday Accommodation in Kirra
Kirra is part of the Gold Coast and is situated in the southern part of Queensland. Kirra is actually Queensland's most south eastern town. The beachside town is known as ‘Surf Central’ where the first Queensland club for surfboard riders was established in 1962. The surf breaks at Kirra Point are renowned for providing excellent waves for well seasoned surfers and have been the training point for many surfing greats.
Have a dip in the water or be sky high!
For water lovers, Kirra is a great place to enjoy swimming at the beach, surfing, snorkelling or scuba diving. North Kirra is a good beach to go swimming as it is calm and gentle there. Otherwise, if you wish to go surfing, take a surf lesson closer to shore or if you are an experienced surfer, go surfing at the world famous Kirra Point which produces high quality barrels. Rent a holiday apartment with a balcony view and watch the ferocity of the waves crash against the rocks.
Rocky outcrops are located just off Kirra Beach where you can discover the different marine life hiding amongst the rocks whilst scuba diving. There are a variety of lessons you can take from snorkelling, a Master Scuba Diving course or an underwater photography course.
For holiday makers seeking an adrenalin rush, book yourself in to do tandem skydiving and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Gold Coast. Alternatively, you can treat your partner to a hot air balloon ride where you can see the sun rise over the horizon and enjoy the scenic views of the ocean below. Enjoy a champagne breakfast on terra firma afterwards.
Staying in Kirra, you will find most of the holiday accommodation offered includes self-contained accommodation with budget accommodation available as well.
Taking it easy
During your downtime, enjoy a walk or cycle along the track that stretches from North Kirra to Kirra Surf Life Surfing Club. Take a walk around Kirra Point to the historic ‘shed' and journey up to the top of Kirra Hill where a sculpture of an iron eagle stands. Share a view of the waves crashing upon Kirra Beach. Parks and picnics spots are scattered along the beachfront so you can enjoy a family BBQ and play frisbee and ball games on the grass all day long. One or two bedroom holiday apartments are good accommodation options for families who wish to stay in Kirra.
Have a romantic evening and enjoy a nice meal at one of the beachfront restaurants or have a few drinks from the balcony of your hotel accommodation and watch the beautiful sunset and waves crashing over the beach.
