Easter and the school holidays are fast approaching! Why not book an escape to Scarborough Beach Resort and enjoy a break with your family or friends.
Scarborough Beach Resort is located directly across from the beach and parklands fringing the shoreline with one of the best parks around! The kids will have hours of fun climbing the gnarled and twisted branches of the Cottonwood Trees and playing in the large themed (Pirate Place and Train Place) playground!
At Scarborough Beach Resort we offer a lap pool, large heated hydro spa, gym and free wifi. For something really unique, hire on of our Brum pedal cars to explore the local area.
Our location is only 35 minutes from Brisbane Airport and surrounded with an array of restaurants and coffee shops. It’s also the perfect base to explore Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast regions.
