Surfers Paradise

Vibrant, Alive & Legendary

Without doubt one of Australia’s most popular holiday destinations, Surfers Paradise offers a multitude of world-class attractions and miles of stunning coastline. From relaxed beachside cinema and beachfront markets, to the local New Year’s Eve celebrations, there’s something for everyone on this glitter strip.

For lovers of the finer things in life, Surfers is a major shopping and dining precinct, with exclusive fashion labels sitting alongside duty-free shopping outlets and souvenir stores. The new Circle on Cavill shopping and leisure precinct offers an incredible range of boutique shopping, gourmet fresh food and dining, bowling, and a big screen so you don’t miss out on the sporting action while you shop and dine.

If you’d prefer to be at the beach, head down to the beachfront night markets on Friday evenings, or enjoy Surfers’ late-night shopping every day of the week. Surfers Paradise is a place where you can truly enjoy the outdoors: watch bronzed Aussie surfers wander with their surfboards down the main street, families frolicking in the surf and couples sitting at alfresco cafes at any time of day. When the sun goes down, put on your glad rags and burn the candle at both ends, with a selection of more than 31 nightclubs, bars and pubs open late each night.
