About Surfers Paradise

Surfers Paradise is the heart of the Gold Coast and continues to be one of the most popular tourist spots in Australia. Known for its beautiful beaches and breathtaking skyline, Surfers Paradise is indeed a must-see destination.

Surfers Paradise is full of restaurants, clubs, hotels and shops making it the thriving metropolis of the Gold Coast. Tourists are welcomed by locals in the thousands each year and are treated to an adventure playground. You can have an early morning dip in the surf then head beachside for a hearty breakfast. Later browse the hundreds of shops from discount outlets to boutique stores.

In the evening head to Cavill Avenue, the main strip in Surfers which boasts pubs, clubs and fine dining restaurants. Feast on dishes like succulent steak or sumptuous seafood, any number of options are available, each providing you with the fuel to take on the nightlife in Surfers Paradise.

Along the Cavill Avenue strip and surrounding streets, all within a two kilometre radius you will find a huge range of pubs and clubs from which to dance the night away. If clubs aren't for you don't despair, head to the beachfront where the street comes alive on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday nights with street markets which sell handmade items, anything from jewellery to beauty products.
