Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Our 6yo and 8yo girls loved it. We are going back today for the 100mins session. Great value for the whole family.

    This place is the best. We got there early for the kids to play on the new peninsula playground. Such a great play ground with so much to do. My 4 and 6 year old loved it.
    We then headed to the splash park for the kids to cool down before walking down further to the jumping pillow and another play ground.
    Before we headed home the kids built sand castles and dipped their feet in the water.
    Such a beautiful spot, def recommend for a family day out.

    I would totally recommend this experience. We played the VR game OUTBREAK. The virtual effects were great, very realistic and intense at times. Lots of fun.

    They have a lot of spare bowels and good ones you can play with. I think the food could be improved on at lunch time

    Lots of family history in here being a Ryder. Disappointed they moved it from the top of the hill by the pool. The pine still stands there though

    Great little theatre tucked away in Southport. Saw a fantastic production 'Bye Bye Birdie' last week. Great cast, eye-popping set design and wonderfully choregraphed. Great to see venues like this embraced. Park in vacant block next door for $4. Download the easy park app before you go to make your life easier...it's a pink square with a lower case e on it. Enjoy the culture.

    Modern building with great pools. Has a canteen where you can grab a quick meal if you are waiting to pick someone up. Cool inside area, friendly lobby staff and life guards.

    This is a high end one stop shop. The range and quality of shops in a small area is excellent. Particularly like the lunch options at Reef Seafood, the range in the deli/green grocer, and Merl coffee
    Never had an issue with parking though the skills of some drivers leaves a bit to be desired

    A lot of construction work being done so didn’t get the best visibility of the place. However the food court was extremely messy, not cleaned or looked like it was being maintained. Not the best variety of shops either

    With some cafe And a library. The school ground is big and open to all. Some time there will be events hosted by the students and it’s nice to just relive the school days.

    The green-grocers here has always been wonderful, always had a great range of first class fruit, veg, and wide range of deli items from Mid-East, Europe and Asia.
    The store is linked has been linked with those in Helensvale, Runaway Bay, Harbour Town and around Mermaid Beach (I think).
    Now there's even more exciting news! The old team from Runaway Bay Fruitabella are here in Southport!! So you know it's extra good service, and you can get almost anything you need if you ask (just be patient).
    A revamp of the shop, quick turnover of stock ensuring super fresh quality, and big welcoming smiles. Honestly, what more do you need apart from rain to keep the farmers happy?
