Nearby Amenities

Villa La Salle is located in Southport which is the central business district of the Gold Coast and has one of the city’s largest communities. The area of coast facing Southport is known as the Broadwater and is used for fishing, boating and water sports. Southport is 6 minutes from Surfers Paradise and is bordered by the Nerang River.

History

A settlement was first surveyed in 1874 and the name Southport decided the following year. Southport was once the site of timber mills along with a port which was established to ship logs to Brisbane. Cutting timber opened up the area for settlement. Early rural industries included sugar growing and livestock grazing.

By 1901 Southport had become a tourist seaside spot and had a permanent population of 1,230. The railway from Beenleigh to Southport opened in 1889 and closed in 1964. A ferry service transported passengers to Main Beach and a horse and buggy service linked the area to Surfers Paradise. The construction of the Jubilee Bridge in 1925 between Southport and Main Beach replaced the ferry service and facilitated further growth. The Southport cement jetty was built in 1914.

On 25 April 1922, the Southport War Memorial was dedicated by the Member of the Queensland Legislative Assembly for Albert, John Appel. In 1927, the Pier Theatre which included a cafe and indoor golf course was built on the jetty. A fire destroyed the structure in 1932 but it was rebuilt and open to the public for nearly forty years. By the 1950s, Southport was the central entertainment location of the Gold Coast.
