COVID-19 Pandemic & This Website
The COVID-19 Pandemic has had a huge impact on local Gold Coast businesses, which rely heavily on visitors from Queensland, interstate and overseas.
During this time, it is hard to keep the website fully up to date with all the changes. In the meantime here are some resources for visitors. Our main booking partners for hotels and for tours, tickets, theme parks and activities are keeping everything up to date, so please use those resources in the meantime.
Travel Information for Queensland Visitors - Queensland Tourist Safety Information - regularly updated, official website.
Thank you for your understanding and patience at this really difficult time.

Collection of Budds Beach Photos
Please note this page may load slowly because I have tried to keep the photos taken at Budds Beach as large as possible for your enjoyment.
I've put them right at the bottom of the page, but I also seem to get a creative urge whenever I am taking Budds Beach photos.
I call this shot Budds beach umbrella. This photo looks like I set it up - I didn't!
We arrived to have a coffee one day to find this kindly set up for us!
This picture really says it all about the relaxed atmosphere on this beach.
Don't worry if you forget your beach umbrella...
This shot is to show you that there are palm trees at Budds that you can use for shade.

Budds Beach at low tide, looking towards Cronin Island and Paradise Waters
These are two exclusive residential Gold Coast areas with
large houses, waterfront and often a rather nice boat moored on the jetty.
Ah this is the life!
Budds Beach jetty.
Paradise Waters houses.
Bumbles Cafe at Budds Beach is definitely worth a visit.
Inside Bumbles at Budds Beach - the atmosphere is so friendly and inviting, you can't help but linger here. No need to worry there is plenty of inside seating.
Plenty of seating inside and out. There needs to be it is a
popular spot for breakfasts, lunches and coffee and cake.
I know this photo is not very professional with our reflection in it,
but these cakes are just something else!
I share the carrot cake with my husband.
It's enough for us both! So delicious. We are trying to discipline
ourselves to work through the cakes - but the carrot cake keeps calling.
This streescape is looking from Bumbles past SuGa SuGa.
It feels like a perfect mix between Australian and European.
The day I took this we had an Italian couple sitting chatting
on the next table, we could have been almost anywhere.
SuGa SuGa has some lovely items from both Australia and around the world - you might find a really novel souvenir to take home.

nice car parked underneath!
I can almost not believe I took this shot.
I really could only photograph a rubbish bin
when I am feeling really creative! Must be
something in the air at Budds!
And with a rubbish bin I finish off my Budds Beach photos. I hope you
have enjoyed them. Don't forget to share
this page with your friends if you enjoyed it.
