If you've ever spent a day on your towel at the beach, wished you had something comfier to sit on and dreamed of getting a drink from a bar right there on the shore, you definitely aren't alone — and, on the Gold Coast this summer, your fantasy has just become a reality.

Meet Kurrawa Beach Club, which has set up shop on Kurrawa Terrace in Broadbeach until Sunday, January 30. First announced back in November, and now open and welcoming in beach-lovers, it's serving up all the things that its moniker promises. Think: cabanas, daybeds, volleyball nets, cocktails, live tunes, seafood and salads, and just generally having a cruisy yet still luxe trip to the seaside, all while surrounded by oh-so-much sand, Queensland's dazzling sun and plenty of blue salty water.

The venue is the latest venture by Australian Venue Co, who've been awarded the opportunity to host a trial beach club run over the summer. At this stage, it has settled in for a two-month stretch — and whether it could lead to a permanent beach club hasn't yet been revealed.

Across its test stint, Broadbeach's European-style stint of lounging, sipping and relaxing by the ocean is pairing cocktails and brews — including margarita slushies, plus sips from Black Hops Brewing, Wheel & Spoon and Hard Fizz — with a food menu from its container kitchen. So, you'll be tucking into prawn and Moreton Bay bug rolls, fried haloumi with watermelon, seafood skewers, salads, burgers, and other summer-friendly snacks made using local and seasonal produce.

Grab one of those prawn and bug rolls on a Sunday, and you'll also be helping Albatross Nippers, a Gold Coast-based nipper program for children with special needs — with a dollar from each sale going to the initiative.

Also on the agenda: live tunes from Gold Coast locals, pilates brunches and beach volleyball games, as well as hanging out on those aforementioned daybeds and in the VIP cabanas. The space is family-friendly, too, so you might have pint-sized company while you're getting comfy and getting drinks from the bar.

Kurrawa Beach Club's opening dates and hours varying each week, so head to its website for further details.
