About Surfers Paradise

The iconic Surfers Paradise is located in the south east corner of Queensland and is the central hub of the Gold Coast. “Surfers” as it is colloquially known is approximately 70 km’s from Brisbane.
Renowned as the State’s playground with award winning beaches and golden white sand, Surfers Paradise is squeezed with towering apartment blocks and high rise buildings that sit on the foreshore as if they’ve risen from the sea.
The heart of town is Cavill Mall, which stretches through to the ocean and hosts as the backbone of the shopping, entertainment and dining precinct and is a hive of activity buzzing continuously day and night. Cavill Avenue, named after Jim Cavill, one of the first hoteliers to the area, is where the glitter erupts after dark and the lights go on as Australia’s capital of nightlife awakens attracting up to 20,000 visitors daily.
Surfers Paradise foreshore is fronted by a newly rejuvenated public space that features contemporary street-scaping, incorporating 95 Pandanus trees and vegetation, beach showers and numerous places to sit and reflect at the spectacular view. This is the setting for the Surfers Paradise Festival held in March and April annually, the weekly markets that spring up every Wednesday and Friday night and the Australian Sand Sculpting Championships plus a variety of other free events.
The district houses 40% of the Gold Coast’s accommodation, business facilities, and is serviced by Surfside bus-links, and light rail GLink trams.
Major events held in Surfers are the Gold Coast 600, the annual V8 supercar carnival held at the Surfers Paradise Street Circuit, and Schoolies Week, which attracts thousands of school leavers from around the country who descend on the Coast for a week of fun, partying and entertainment. Renowned icons to Surfers Paradise are the famous Meter Maids introduced in 1965 who sport a gold lycra bikini and an Akubra Hat as their attire and keep tourists happy by filling their car meters and posing for photos.
