Gold Coast Breakfast Good Vibes Markets And Sunshine

 


Gold Coast – Breakfast - Good Vibes Markets @ Sunshine.

With an unmatched collection of award-winning beaches, world-heritage listed rainforests and many top-notch attractions and experiences for all, the Gold Coast is undoubtedly an incredible place to explore. And with so much fun to be had, we make sure our pup (Shari) doesn’t miss out on all the adventures. There are a number of off-leash dog beaches, parks, accommodation providers and even cafés that cater to both humans and our beloved canines on the Gold Coast.






Our first stop was breakfast at Bumbles, on Budd’s Beach, which is only a short walk from Surfers, but it feels like miles away. There’s a relaxed sleepy feel to this riverside suburb with the cars driving slower than the surf side hustle. Bumbles Cafe is a quaint cafe right on the water of Budd’s Beach. Built out of a refurbished house, the place makes you feel right at home with various rooms to sit and eat, each with their own unique design. While we were waiting for our meals local residents were arriving by jetski, boats, paddle boards and kayaks, parking on the beach and crossing the road to where they must religiously visit each morning, grab the morning paper, nod to the barista signaling “the usual”, and plant themselves in their favorite seat amongst other regulars.






One of the best breakfasts in Surfers Paradise, well Shari (pup) thought so. They also make a cracking cuppa and offer high tea on the weekend. You can have their homemade honey with dough breads are served for breakfast. They keep their own bees on the roof. 










The refurbished house, as previously stated, consists of several rooms. Each one has a totally different decoration and it makes you feel like you are visiting your friend’s house. One room is like a dining room which has been decorated elegantly, one is like a living room with a cozy vibe and another one is like your home library. What a lovely find with peaceful surroundings, beautiful interiors and friendly staff. The coffee was great and food delicious and such a nice change from the bustle of the beachfront just a few blocks away.

 







Our next stop was Pizzey Park, Miami. This off-leash area is our favourite because it has a great enclosed agility area which is safe for dogs of all sizes to play in. The lakeside area of this Miami dog park is also perfect for man’s best friend to have a scamper and sniff around and swim. The bonus is you can enjoy a walk around the lake, with the pine trees as a backdrop with your pup following you in and out of the water. Shari (pup) goes berserk as soon as she gets there and can't wait to jump out of the car. 




All those lovely smelling trees and shrubs she jumps out as soon as we open the door. Dog beaches are all very pleasant but Pizzey Park offers an alternative forested setting for doggie exercise sessions, complete with freshwater lake and a fully fenced agility area. It’s refreshing being around responsible dog owners keeping their dogs happy, healthy and socializing.






After a couple of hours letting our pup run around with other friendly dogs we drove down to our favourite markets at Burleigh Heads. The market scene is still thriving on the Gold Coast because the locals love to spend their weekends uncovering and searching for unique finds, chilling out listening to live music with a nice brew of coffee.









The Village Markets had their monthly ‘Rack Sale’ for pre-loved clothing. The Village Markets celebrates creative, foodies and small businesses from the local community. With a soft spot for start-ups, this is where you’ll discover the next best thing before anyone else. We were able to park the Ute under a shady tree just near main music tent where some good vibes were echoing over the markets. One of the nicest ways to start a lovely Sunday is by getting out bright and early and visiting a morning market. This is a great place to potter and find unique gifts.





Kim loved the Trevena & Co. Artisan Eco Activewear with watercolor designer patters on fabric which is better for the environment. Self taught artist Aimee Trevena Fergusson combines her passion for creativity and sustainability into artistic eco-friendly products.
