Kirra Surf Life Saving Club Date of visit 13th September 2011
Kirra is an iconic surf club at the southern end of Kirra Beach, just north of Coolangatta. Part of the old pavilion style building is a Pizza Hut restaurant, but we went to the Kirra Surf Life Saving Supporters Club upstairs above the surf club itself.
The club is expecting to be in a position to install a lift to facilitate disabled accessibility; they already have a toilet for disabled people.
We dined on the elevated verandah which has a retractable canvas roof which was not necessary on the beautiful day that we went and we were able to enjoy the excellent views of Kirra Beach and the coastline north to Runaway Bay.
The menu described the meal as:
Steak Burger – Turkish Bread with bacon, cheese, salad, BBQ sauce and chips. $16.50
The meal was promptly served and was well presented – the bread was toasted on the outside, but not the inside and it was buttered. The steak was gristle free sirloin cooked to medium, the salad was tomato, mixed lettuce and (yeah) beetroot. Overall it was pretty good and I liked the atmosphere of the place (basic and nostalgic, but clean and comfortable).
My business associate Jon had a grilled chicken burger at $16.00 and my friend and colleague Bill had Beer Battered Fish of the Day with salad and chips at $16.90. Jon praised his meal with the comment “very good – quite flavoursome”, but Bill was less enthusiastic about his meal – he thought that it was OK, but nothing special.
This club is well worth a visit and we will be back.
I welcome your feedback and if you want to cast a vote for Kirra, please go ahead.

When we first came to live on the Gold Coast we decided with our friends Peter & Fennis (who live in Brisbane) that we would have lunch at every one of the 17 surf clubs on the Gold Coast with dining facilities. Well, it didn't happen and we probably have only done three of them together, but since deciding to produce a blog, I thought that I would resurrect the plan of having a regular lunch at different clubs.
