Think you know Surfers Paradise? Think again. The Gold Coast’s original epicentre of fun has been rejuvenated, and is now overflowing with a renewed energy you’ll fall in love with. 

Stay in beachside accommodation and ease into your trip with an emerging café and restaurant scene, explore the revitalised foreshore precinct, then later on, be swept away by the spectacular range of after-dark entertainment. 

When you add these with the world-famous beaches, 7-day late night shopping, family favourite attractions, and the new light-rail network connecting neighbouring precincts, now’s the perfect time to rediscover an icon - Surfers Paradise.

Just 30 minutes from Gold Coast Airport, you'll discover that Surfers Paradise is a must see, must stay destination experience.

Featuring world-class developments, attractions, events, business facilities and unique shopping experiences, Surfers Paradise encapsulates all of the energy and excitement that only a unique and evolving location by the sea can offer.

Surfers Paradise services 41% of all accommodation on the Gold Coast, making it the best place to be based when exploring the region. There is an accommodation option to suit every budget.

There are 14 shopping centres and arcades in Surfers Paradise, so make sure you put on your walking shoes, explore them all and discover the hidden gems within the precinct.

For that unique Surfers Paradise gift, head down to the Surfers Paradise Beachfront markets every Wednesday and Friday night between 5:30pm and 10:00pm.

Explore more than 120 market stalls which stretch across half a kilometre of beachfront promenade, offering a selection of locally made gift ideas ranging from accessories, crafts, artworks, beauty products, homewares, jewellery and music.

With a variety of late night and 24 hour dining options, you'll be able to plan a full day's entertainment.

Surfers Paradise is the entertainment capital of Queensland with an array of nightclubs, pubs, bars and clubs, all within a two kilometre range and most operating into the early hours.
