Surfers Paradise, Gold Coast (QLD)

Surfers Paradise in Gold Coast is out to show it’s no longer just for the night owls with its plentiful choices for young and old.

The jewel in the Gold Coast crown is unquestionably Surfers Paradise, one of the most recognised destinations in the country. Since the 1920s, when Brisbane hotelier Jim Cavill purchased 10 hectares of land in the then named Elston, the surfside suburb has been a hot spot on tourism. Also named the much more fitting Surfers Paradise, the area is fringed by pristine beaches and steady surf, but it is best known for the skyline-dominating skyscrapers and the even more prominent bikini-clad metre maids.

Surfers Paradise is no stranger to a highrise, but in some parts not all tall buildings are produced equal. A trip to Q1 is a non-negotiable one-the building is one of the world’s highest residential buildings at just under 333 metres in height. The SkyPoint Observation Deck is perched at its very top and boasts 360 degree views of the surrounding Gold Coast.

While night owls may tend to explore after sunset-Surfers Paradise has long boasted its nightlife reputation. Late-night entertainment here is thriving, with the main drag Cavill Avenue and its surroundings home to some of the most lively businesses in the region, from clubs to specialty bars. Take a tipple with a view at The Island Rooftop, or revel, among others, in a night of indulgence on Hyde Paradiso’s likes.

We ensure families are equally well catered for. Eager surfers would be tempted to try on the long sandy stretch nestling in the skyscrapers to navigate the waves out front. Especially welcoming beginners, want tobe wave chasers can join one of the many surf schools that call home Surfers Paradise. Besides its variety of water sports, the area also provides a plethora of activities for the children to enjoy, from Ripley’s Believe it or Not! Odditorium to Mini Golf Course Military, and even a 7D Cinema.
