Surfers Paradise

About Surfers Paradise

Surfers Paradise’s sand, sun and surfing lifestyle is iconic. “Surfers”, as it’s colloquially referred to, is a premier international tourist and entertainment destination that hosts 20,000 visitors per day.

In 1959, the first high-rise building was constructed in Surfers which was a historically significant moment that ignited what’s now considered to be a world-renowned skyline.

In addition to the great beach, Surfers Paradise hosts a series of great events including prestigious Surf Life Saving competitions and artistic and cultural community events throughout the precinct. The Surfers Paradise Beachfront Markets operate 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.
