SurfersParadise,QLD Travel Guide

by our Australia expert Conrad Freethy
Conrad FreethyAmazingly enough, Surfers Paradise is a coastal resort which offers some of the very best surfing anywhere. In fact, it’s a resort suburb of Gold Coast City … which, again unsurprisingly, is located on Queensland’s Pacific Gold Coast. Warning:- 10 million visitors go there each year. Encouragement:- they go there for some very good reasons. “Surfers” was custom-built to offer every possible tourist attraction in an unsurpassed climate and beach environment. Some business developments followed plus a thriving film industry and these plus an immense choice of hotels created a unique skyscraper-on-the-beach landscape. There isn’t room to list all the beach/water/sport attractions – imagine it and it’s there. Cavill Avenue is the focus for shopping and nightlife … and a should-be-everywhere facility are the Meter Maids in gold bikinis who feed the meter on your behalf!
