SURFERS PARADISE

GET TO KNOW
THE AREA

There’s a reason this beachfront strip attracts an incredible number of visitors each day. Its well-earned reputation for being the Gold Coast’s premier party town, combined with the sun-drenched beach, makes Surfers Paradise one of Queensland’s top destinations. But stop for a moment and you will see that Surfers Paradise works as well for families as it does for 20-somethings.  

Lifestyle

Sun-up to sun-down, Surfers Paradise loves to show off. Its towering skyline hugs the famed stretch of beach and the streets offer a profusion of eateries, cafés, bars and nightclubs. Needless to say, Surfers Paradise has a hectic social calendar, but it does little to detract from its laid-back vibe which comes with a hint of cosmopolitan glamour. 

Cavill Avenue, Surfers Paradise Boulevard and the surrounding streets cater well to holidaymakers, from high-end retailers to beachfront markets, and fine dining establishments to hole-in-the-wall eateries. When it comes to entertainment venues and activities, the choices are endless. But no place draws a crowd quite like the beach, with its incredible stretch of sand, surf culture and annual events.

Although the area is heavily geared towards out-towners, locals enjoy the respite of their waterfront homes, parklands and neighbourhood shops. When they really want to escape the hordes, the lush surroundings of the Gold Coast Hinterland region are only moments away.

BEACHES

Surfers Paradise Beach is the area’s star attraction. Running between Main Beach and Broadbeach, this wide sandy stretch with impressive surf conditions has garnered world-wide attention, especially with its line-up of annual events.
