With almost 100 years of history, 45 Nerang St – the Gold Coast’s first Ambulance station, is one of QLD’s rare architectural gems.


Originally built in 1922, this 2-storey architecturally award winning building boasts a rich history on the Gold Coast. Located on Nerang Street, the building is situated in the centre of Southport’s CBD and close to many key business landmarks. To the north of the site is the Southport Courthouse and to the west is the original Gold Coast Council Chambers.

Numerous alterations had been made during the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s. The final addition in the 1970’s included the removal of some of the street facade and the use of a split faced block and screen wall area to conceal the domestic scale Ambulance building behind.

In 2002, at the ripe old age of 80, the building was restored to its former glory by the Howe family, who enlisted Burling Brown Architects. The building is now a fully modernized office space with 1011 m2 of NLA which includes a lobby, 3 boardrooms, 2 kitchens, an outdoor entertainment area and a front balcony entertaining area plus car parking for 11 vehicles at the rear.
