Mother's Day Classic Gold Coast


Mother's Day Classic, Gold Coast 2021

As avid sunrise chasers we headed down the M1 to Surfers Paradise at the golden hour that beach walkers, fisherman, surfers, joggers and runners all take advantage of the gorgeous Pacific Ocean sunrise and glassy waves.

Our favourite location to head is the calm and protected waters of Budds Beach, which is perfect for paddle boarding and kayaking. There’s a lovely tree lined park area where you can take a stroll, kick a ball or just lie and rest while sinking into a good book. Kids can have fun on the playground in the park and there are well maintained public toilet and BBQ facilities available. The beach is a hidden gem in the heart of Surfers Paradise tucked away to the west of the glitter strip of the Gold Coast Highway along the banks of the Nerang River. Located at the end of Palm Avenue, less than 1km from the cypress avenue light rail station and Surfers Paradise hotels. What a lot of people don’t realise is that the western side of Surfers Paradise offers its own unique blend of accommodation, cafes and experiences albeit at a much slower pace.

Just opposite Budds Beach is Bumbles Café, which is all about your pooch.  It has a full outdoor area overlooking the stunning canal so your pooch can sit and rest after your leisurely morning walk, while you enjoy a coffee and brekkie. The staff at Bumbles Café will even supply your pooch with water and ample room to rest their weary legs, such a tough life they lead. 

Bumbles Café is one of our favourites for breakfast when where’re down the coast. The building consists of a number of different rooms, all decked out with pretty tables, feature artwork, comfortable chairs and period pieces. Poached eggs were nice and runny, and the bacon not too salty. Kim couldn’t leave before grabbing a couple of cakes in the display case, which looked amazing.


Listen ... if you are tired of the hotel prices and other average offerings around town do yourself a big favour and go looking for 'bumbles' ... you will be very pleasantly surprised.


Go here for:

- Peace from the Surfers crowd

- Unique decor.. Something different

- Great food and terrific coffee

- Value for money pricing.. You don't pay more for excellence

- caring professional smiling staff.


Breakfast all done we headed to Fishermans Lawn, Southport for the Mother’s Day Classic supporting a world without breast cancer. Located just north of the bustling Surfers Paradise, the Broadwater Parklands has a range of fun activities perfect for the whole family. Centrally located and spanning three kilometres along the beautiful Broadwater in Southport, the Parklands not only offer fantastic views of the Surfers Paradise skyline but also offer numerous wide open spaces for enjoyment.

The pandemic couldn’t get in the way of the incredible Mother's Day Classic community with 2021 having tens of thousands of participants at locations across Australia to promote awareness, to support loved ones and raise funds for breast cancer research, which Kim has done for the last 15+ years.

 While this year looked a little different because this was our first time at the Gold Coast Event.  Everyone still was able to dress up, bring their pup, complete a walk/run and honour those touched by breast cancer. To help reduce the risk of transmission of COVID 19 participants, waves set off half an hour between each other. We have penciled in the Gold Coast event next year.
