Mirage Boat Hire

B Jetty, 60 Sea World Drive, Gold Coast Mc QLD 4217

MIRAGE BOAT HIRE has been established for over 25 years, the longest period any boat hire company has been on the Gold Coast. It was originally two companies, one named POPEYE’S BOAT HIRE and the other CAPTAIN BARB E BOAT HIRE, which was appropriate in the good old days when Crocodile Dundee visited the Gold Coast. Today, however, with the tremendous growth and numerous entertainment attractions on the Gold Coast, the modern tourist rightfully expects a better quality boat and service excellence. The names were changed to MIRAGE BOAT HIRE to reflect the upmarket quality of the boats and service we provide to our clients. No expense was spared to provide you with the LARGEST and MOST LUXURIOUS fleet to choose from. Our boats are all maintained to the highest mechanical and safety standards and offer you the best quality possible, to ensure that you have a wonderful day cruising the beautiful Nerang River and Broadwater. Our boats are all fully upholstered, including the half cabin area for your comfort, as well as full covers to protect you from the elements. Our large fleet of 22 boats caters for every need, from the mini speedboats, various size half cabins from 15’ to 20’, Sweetwater Party Pontoons, BBQ Pontoons onto the large 33’ BBQ Party Pontoon, Four Winns Bowrider and a 45 person party cruiser.
BBQ Pontoons are full day hire only ex for weekdays from May to Sept, surcharges apply on Public Hols and some weekends.

Hinze Dam

Advancetown Road, Advancetown, Gold Coast Mc QLD 4217
South East Queensland's AUD395 Million Hinze Dam was originally constructed in 1976, later raised 15 metres in 1989 and recently upgraded in 2011. The large embankment and un-gated spillway across the Nerang River provides water security and flood mitigation to the Gold Coast. The catchment area of 207 square kilometres includes the Numinbah Valley and Springbrook Plateau, which pools into a 3700 acre reservoir called Advancetown Lake. This lake provides recreational users with walking and horse riding trails and is a popular stop off for lycra-clad cyclists passing through the Gold Coast Hinterland. For anglers with a permit and electric outboard motor (sail or paddle craft) this is a playground for hooking golden and silver perch, saratoga, Mary River cod and Australian bass from either The Western (Nerang Murwillumbah Road) or Eastern Boat Ramp (Little Nerang and Range Roads). There are four picnic and barbecue areas with nearby playgrounds for the kids and onlookers, plus a state-of-the-art educational interpretive centre perched above the parklands and lake.

Gold Coast Oceanway

The Spit, Seaworld Drive, Gold Coast Mc QLD 4217
Even die-hard Gold Coast fans may not realise this but there is an official section of the coast known as the Gold Coast Oceanway, a 36-kilometre network of pathways which connects The Spit at the north to Point Danger in the south. This innovative initiative is actually a series of sections which range up to four kilometres long and are popular with walkers and cyclists. There's accessible viewing platforms for people with disabilities and the entire route is serviced by the local Surfside Buses. With salt in your hair enjoy blue ocean waves, golden sandy beaches and green dunes. You'll encounter birds, dolphins, fish and whales along this award-winning route popular with those who like to swim, fish, sail and sunbake. There's also plenty of public facilities such as barbecues and toilets along the way. So take your time, breathe, relax and enjoy as you connect the dots between the Gold Coast Seaway and Coolangatta.

Palm Beach Reef Dive Site

Palm Beach, Gold Coast Mc QLD 4217
Palm Beach Reef, located close to its namesake beach on the Gold Coast, is a large reef of varying depths, perfect for any diver. With sections of the area as shallow as five metres, and other sections dropping to depths of 24 metres, there are lots of different environments here to explore. Rocky outcrops and several large bommies are covered in a wide variety of soft corals and sponges, inhabited by an abundance of sea life - larger creatures such as stingrays, wobbegongs and spotted eagle rays are often seen, with leopard sharks common in summer. Smaller critters darting throughout the coral include blue wrasse, parrotfish, painted wrasse and a variety of reef fish, with large schools the norm.

Cook Island Dive Site

Coolangatta, Gold Coast Mc QLD 4217
Cook Island, a short boat trip from the Gold Coast, is an accessible and appealing dive site for all experience levels. Hard and soft corals cover the bottom in some areas, with boulders forming walls and caves descending to the sandy sea floor in others. A colourful and interesting mix of reef and pelagic fish call Cook Island home: pufferfish, gropers, surgeonfish, clown fish, leatherjackets, parrotfish, trevally, bullseyes and sweetlips are some of the most common residents. Photographers will find plenty of photogenic subjects, with nudibranchs, stingrays, turtles, wobbegongs and even leopard sharks over summer.
