Surfers Paradise has long held a reputation as the ultimate playground for those seeking fun in the sun. What many visitors are now discovering is that Surfers also offers first-class facilities, many culinary delights, shopping havens and adventures aplenty. Whether you’re looking for a romantic interlude, a weekend with friends, a rejuvenating break, or action-packed adventure, this shining star of the Gold Coast has you covered.
Both Main Beach and Broadbeach in Surfers Paradise offer not only glorious stretches of golden sand, and rolling surf, but also a chance to mix things up back from the beachfront. Main Beach abounds with café-lined boulevards, boutique shopping, and fine dining restaurants, particularly along Tedder Avenue. And Broadbeach is another place to head for holiday shopping, restaurants, bars and entertainment venues that will keep you having fun day and night.
Most visitors to Surfers Paradise never miss the theme parks: Sea World, Dreamworld and Warner Bros. Movie World. Further afield, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is a fascinating destination for those looking for an animal encounter. And there’s a range of tours of the natural variety. Explore hinterland national parks, sample a drop or two on a winery tour, or experience a bird’s eye view of the region with a hot-air ballooning adventure. Closer to town, the Q1 Tower observation deck in the heart of Surfers Paradise affords incredible far-reaching views, and is not to be missed.
There are plenty of creative types who have made Surfers Paradise their home. Discover the work of local artists at any number of great galleries, and don’t miss an evening browsing the waterfront markets to stock up on a range of local handicrafts. Surfers Paradise Beachfront Markets are held on Wednesday and Friday nights, and feature stalls laden with clothing, jewellery, arts and crafts, and live entertainment.
