Fitzgibbons Hotels & Leisure, Robina Pavilion

Accommodation, Cafes and Restaurants

Alphonsus and Lily Fitzgibbons bought their first pub, the Kirabelle Hotel (now Coolangatta Sands Hotel) in Coolangatta in the 1930s, the first of four generations of local publicans. The Fitzgibbons family has owned the Robina Pavilion, proudly serving the local community and employing hundreds of locals since the 1990s. Following extensive renovations, the family was thrilled the Robina Pavilion was voted the #1 pub on the Gold Coast, as voted by the community in the Gold Coast Bulletin, in 2021. In addition to the Robina Pavilion, the Fitzgibbons family owns and operates pubs in South East Queensland and South Australia.
