Miami Accommodation, Hotels, Tours & Information

Miami

For 69 years, this relaxed Gold Coast suburb was home to Miami Ice, an iconic ice factory built from two recycled army huts which were demolished in 2013. Even Australian singer John Farnham used this venue to film his Two Strong Hearts film clip.

But while the controversy over the demolition of this cultural icon has since melted, Miami remains an uber cool place to visit with its burgeoning caf? culture. A highlight of a visit here is Miami Marketta, where Miami bursts alive with an outdoor dining experience seating 450 people and serving food from around the globe. Edgy local watering holes such as The Cargo Bar and The Shed Bar serve boutique wine and locally-brewed beer, while the main stage is a hot bed of local blues, jazz, roots and independent artists.

Blessed with a beautiful beach, a wide range of accommodation, and a host of beach shacks which remind you of the Gold Coast of old, you could be forgiven for thinking you were in that other Miami. Yes, Florida. White suits optional.
