Surfers Paradise

Home to one of Australia’s most iconic beaches, Surfers Paradise will see our hoppers boarding sandy and salty, which is quite fine by us. Best known for its many nightclubs all within a short walk (or stumble), new visitors may be surprised to find a suite of daytime activities, many shops and enough dining options to fill a month-long holiday.

Things to Do

Play mini-golf, go ten pin bowling, try indoor skydiving, or take to the dodgem track at Time Zone
Have your photo snapped by the iconic Surfers Paradise sign before hitting the sand for a dip
Sip cocktails at a smorgasbord of bars, nightclubs, and rooftop venues
Take the elevator up 77 floors of the Q1 Center to the SkyPoint Observation deck and take in the stunning 360 degree view of the Gold Coast. Or if you’re feeling adventurous, climb to the top.
Stroll the Surfers Paradise Beachfront Markets and check out over 100 unique stalls. Running every Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday nights.
