About Narrowneck

Narrowneck is the slender stretch of sand that separates the Nerang River from the southern end of Main Beach to the northern end of Surfers Paradise beach.

In 1920, the highway connecting Sydney to Brisbane was constructed at Narrowneck. A year later the Gold Coast’s first seawall was built at Narrowneck out of timber to protect this narrow stretch of foreshore from erosion.

Behind the beach is the beautiful Macintosh Island Park accessed by a modern bridge.
