The Southport Sharks

Since it was founded in 1961, Southport Sharks has established itself as the biggest Australian Rules Football Club in Queensland, with a reputation for being fiercely competitive and successful.

Evolving from humble beginnings in a tin shed, today Sharks is regarded as one of the Gold Coast’s premier entertainment, dining and leisure venues.

Lending a hand in the local community is one of the club’s main priorities, with $2.45 million in cash and in kind donations contributed to various local organisations and charities last year.

A successful Patron Partnership with the Gold Coast SUNS proudly recognises Southport Sharks’ continued commitment to further the development of AFL in the region.

The Patron Partnership objectives are achieved through significant on-going financial contribution to the Gold Coast SUNS, contribution to club governance and strategic direction through their position on the Gold Coast SUNS board of directors and a working partnership to develop the sport of Australian Rules football across the region.

Carlton & United Breweries

Carlton Draught is Australia's number one tap beer and is proud to be the Gold Coast SUNS number 1 draught pick!

Carlton Draught is a traditional, full-strength lager that is crisp on the mid-palate with a good malt character and smooth full-bodied flavour. Clean hop bitterness gives the brew a slightly dry finish. Synonymous with the origins of the brewery itself, Carlton Draught is renowned for tasting as fresh as it did the day it was brewed. And it’s that kind of consistency in taste that’s been important to Australians for generations.

You can find Carlton Draught at venues all across Queensland. Keep an eye out for the latest innovation from Carlton Draught, Brewery Fresh Tank Beer, which is unpasteurised draught beer delivered direct from the brewery!

Zarraffa's Coffee

Zarraffa's Coffee, established in 1996, was originally a roasting house operating from the backstreets of Southport on the Gold Coast.

Back then customers would come in for their daily coffee and enjoy a fresh brew perched on a hessian bag full of green coffee beans yet to be roasted by founder and CEO, Kenton Campbell.

Kenton's dream was for Zarraffa's Coffee to become Australia’s premium coffee provider, knocking the competition out of the water with an exceptional product and service guarantee.

From one store, the proudly Australian-owned company has grown into a franchise operation that is synonymous with convenient, quality coffee that is tailor-made for each customer consistently across each store.

With a drink menu offering a delicious choice of hot or cold beverages, Zarraffa’s has also introduced a growing new range of scrumptious food options.

With over 70 stores across Queensland, northern NSW and Western Australia, customers can enjoy their favourite coffee, both dining in store or on-the-go at a drive thru.
