World's best water slide comes to the Gold Coast

We hope you've got your tickets because The City Slider is hitting the streets of Coolangatta this weekend and is definitely not one to be missed. If you're one of the fortunate souls who have secured a session to slip down Boundary Street this Saturday, you are in for a treat! Put it this way, The City Slider certainly knows what makes a good time into an amazing time and that is, a 325 metre temporary water slide that tours around Australia allowing locals to slip down their home streets. Regardless of whether you've secured a golden ticket for the event or not, head down to Coolangatta this weekend to catch this one-of-a-kind action.

We’ve found a bunch of restaurants and bars in the area that are perfect to enjoy a wholesome brekky, tasty lunch and succulent supper as well as few cheeky cocktails to top it all off. Check them out below!

Located on Musgrave Street, this quirky location is not far from the event and serves up an array of fantastic dishes all day long. Home to a menu specialising in vegetarian and vegan dishes, you can either experience something classic for breakfast such as smashed avocado on sourdough or choose a more unusual dish like the spinach and banana pancakes topped with seasonal fruit.

However, it doesn’t just stop at the breakfast menu when it comes to the Greenhouse Factory Restaurant and Bar as this location also sports a delicious selection of lunches and dinners that are perfect for the health-concious eater. Step inside this unique location and say hello to the friendly staff who run this place to perfection.

Regardless of the epic activities, if you find your weekend just isn’t complete without a succulent burger look no further than the Burger Lounge on Douglas Street. This gourmet restaurant is at the forefront of deliciously juicy burgers and is certainly not one to pass by when looking for somewhere to indulge this weekend. You’ve honestly never seen a burger menu like it; homing not only your classic beef patties, but also chicken, fish, lamb, vegetarian and pork, the only trouble you face at this joint is what to choose!

Take a seat in their chic roadside location as you browse over their modern menu while trying not to drool. Once you have finally picked what you fancy (the clock is ticking remember) take time to admire the trendy decor and super friendly service. Nothing beats a locally brewed beer with a burg, so get one of the crew at the Burger Lounge to fill a glass with one of Burleigh Brewery’s finest liquids. if you can stomach it alongside your beauty of a burger, we highly reccommend ordering something off the street food special board – everything tastes fantastic and is certainly worth a try!
