The Gold Coast is Australia’s adventure playground where you can have the ultimate vacation experience.

Energetic, enthusiastic, electric, eclectic! These are just some of the words that sum up the social scene that Surfers Paradise was built on. Since the days of the original Surfers Paradise Hotel, Surfers has always been an entertainment playground famous for its world-class nightlife venues, international events and pumping atmosphere.

Annually, Surfers Paradise hosts a series of great events including prestigious Surf Life Saving competitions, the Castrol Gold Coast 600 V8 Supercars race and free artistic and cultural community events throughout the precinct, including the Surfers Paradise Beachfront Markets operating every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday night between 3:00pm and 8:00pm.

The new foreshore is bustling throughout the day with walkers, cyclists and skateboarders taking advantage of this beachfront boulevard vista overlooking the surf and sand. Like the Surfers Paradise of yesteryear, beachside shopping, dining, bars and clubs continually offer the complete holiday experience all in one compact destination package.

Surfers Paradise comfortably maintains its position as the good-times hub of the Gold Coast, so there’s no better time than now to rediscover this icon.
