7 ideas for a fab ladies’ day out

One of life’s greatest pleasures is organising a day out with the ladies. And when the sun shines 300 days a year as it does on the Gold Coast (most of the time), you want to make the most of it. From boutique shopping under the breezy white sails to the award-winning waterfront restaurants, there is no better place to enjoy a fabulous ladies’ day out than Marina Mirage.

But before you step off the Hopo ferry and onto the marina boardwalk, check out our favourite ways to have a truly lavish day.

Getting here

A few obligatory cocktails are granted on a lavish ladies’ day out, so be sure to jump aboard the Hopo ferry and arrive at the Marina Mirage boardwalk in style.


A fabulous ladies’ day out demands a delicious and healthy brunch to kick off the fun. And if you haven’t yet booked a table at Marina Mirage’s newest foodie hot-spot, The Patio by Sunset, then you’ll want to check it out. Think plant-based dishes, perfectly brewed coffee, and Cocowhip to cool you down on those extra warm days. Energy in equals energy out after all, and you’ll want plenty of it for the amount of shopping your girlfriends can accomplish in a few short hours!

An indulgent treatment

No ladies’ day out would be complete without an indulgent spa treatment from Esteem Medispa, with their combo of an extensive range of treatments to target every concern plus the high-quality expertise you’ve come to expect from the friendly team.

Browse the boutiques

If the past couple of years has taught us anything, it’s to appreciate time spent with loved ones and to support local wherever possible. And when you shop at the many boutiques of Marina Mirage, not only will you discover extraordinary, one-off fashion pieces and exquisite accessories, you’ll be helping a local to continue doing what they love.

Sips and petit fours

With the sparkling celestial blue water as your backdrop and the good company of your girlfriends, it’d be remiss of you not to organise a high tea from Café Mirage. Whether you choose to enjoy your petit fours under the sails in the courtyard of the café or take your high tea waterside, there’s no denying the bites here are incredibly delicious. A great option if you’re also celebrating a special occasion on your ladies’ day out!

Stop by the salon

When one of the Gold Coast’s premier hair salons is but a stroll away, you don’t miss the opportunity to have them blow-wave your hair. With plenty of seats to accommodate you and your girlfriends and the option to have your blow-wave done on dry or freshly washed locks, you’ll be walking out of Trendz feeling confident and ready for the last stop on your ladies’ day out – a delicious dinner by the marina!

Waterfront dining

There is no event more anticipated than a day out with your closest girlfriends. So, make sure you round it out by dining at one of the leading seafood restaurants on the coast – Omeros Brothers. Did we mention they have seating so close to the marina’s edge that you can spot the fish cruising around beneath you? Offering a fresh Australian seafood menu complemented by an extensive wine list and incredibly warm and friendly service, an evening of sips and seafood with your girlfriends at Omeros will create some of the best memories of 2022.
