Day Tripping at Kirra

Southern Gold Coast

Home to iconic surf breaks, a relaxed seaside lifestyle and small village vibes, summer is the perfect time to spend the day at Kirra on the Southern Gold Coast.

With so much to see and do, check out our top picks for a day in the seaside suburb.

Kick start your morning with a feast at the local favourite, Kirramisu. From freshly-brewed coffee to in-house baked goodies, small snacks or big breakys, sit back and relax as you watch the waves roll in.

Thrillseekers can have their boxes ticked in Kirra on a jump with Gold Coast Skydive. Take the ultimate leap and freefall up to 200km/h with views of the Gold Coast and beyond before landing on the soft sands of the stunning and iconic Kirra Beach.

Learn to surf with Go Ride A Wave at Kirra Point, one of the Gold Coast’s safest sheltered beaches. Whether you’re a first timer or looking to brush up on some existing skills, there is something for all members of the family… and there is no better place to do it!

After you've worked up your hunger from a morning of fun, walk across to Kirra Village where you'll find some great options for the whole family - including the health conscious Hi Poke or a freshly-baked pie or pastry from Kirra Beach Bakery.

Take a short and easy walk through well-kept gardens to Kirra Hill. You will not only find the iconic Eagle sculpture but sweeping views of the world-class surf beaches to the south and the entire Gold Coast coastline to the north.

Stroll along the base of the headland on the Oceanway Walk and visit the historic Kirra Shelter at Kirra Point.

Top off the day with a famous stone-baked pizza from Bread N Butter, the foodie hotspot that uses only the best locally-sourced ingredients - and make sure you check out their stunning mural. Head across the road for a sunset picnic on the beach... what a perfect way to end a great day of exploring.
