The Beach and Pavilion 34
The beach itself contains many hidden delights and overlooked sights dotted up and down the Spit, such as the old bathing pavilion, Pavilion 34 which has been refitted as a casual beach cafe. The pavilion sells chikko rolls, potato scallops, pineapple fritters and good ole’ fish and chips while the interior boasts retro photos of the Main Beach of yesteryear. Snacks can subsequently be devoured in the adjacent Southport Surf Pavilion, dating back to 1936, and a sprawling park for oceanfront picnics.
Watch out for: tasty chikko rolls
