Our great mate Laird lives in Main Beach on the Gold Coast and we always drop in for a visit when in town.
Laird took us on a cruise up the Broadwater in his beautiful boat for a picnic on the western side of Wave Break Island (maplink). We were joined by his daughter Steph and her boyfriend, Brayden, along with their 2 dogs Ommie & Mr Bikk. A great spot well frequented by heaps of people.
Wave Break Island was created in 1985 as part of the Gold Coast Seaway construction. It was established to protect the western foreshore of the Broadwater from waves that might penetrate the new, permanently stabilised “seaway” entrance between the Nerang River and the ocean.
