Southport Sharks is a premier dining and entertainment precinct located on the Gold Coast.
Hosting one million visitors annually, Southport Sharks is one of the largest clubs in Queensland and one of the Gold Coast’s leading clubs with over 55,000 members. Our facility offer a multi-purpose events centre, two restaurants, a café, five bars, two AFL grade ovals, sports facilities, modern 24/7 fitness centre, kids club, gaming facilities and free weekly entertainment, plus a 120-room hotel (due for completion in early 2018).
Southport Sharks has a strong commitment to the local community and while we are a not-for-profit community club, we have a commercial focus. Sharks understands that the harder we work, the more the community benefits – from our football team, to our front line team members, we know that results count both on and off the field.
When a spirited Australian rules football team of 22 players takes to the field, they are supported by around one thousand individuals – including team members, junior players and administration personnel – who proudly wear the Sharks colours.
Southport Sharks is located within the Gold Coast Health and Knowledge Precinct, just 10 minutes from Surfers Paradise and five minutes from the stunning Gold Coast Broadwater. From humble beginnings at Owen Park in 1961 to becoming a community leader in sport, leisure and entertainment today, we take pride in entertaining our members. Whilst we have grown in stature, we’re ingrained locally. As a key stakeholder within the Gold Coast Health and Knowledge Precinct, health, fitness and education are a priority to Southport Sharks.
We’re proud to be part of the Gold Coast community and proud to be your club.
