The thriving beachside metropolis of the Gold Coast is crammed full of restaurants, clubs, shops and hotels making it Australia's most popular holiday destination. At the centre of all the action is Surfers Paradise, with its dazzling skyline and beautiful beaches, where you can splash in the sea, soak up the sun, dine in style and shop till you drop.
Known as Australia's adventure playground, there are so many things to see and do in and around Surfers Paradise, and something for everyone young and old. Serious thrill seekers should head to the famous theme parks, especially to the white-knuckle rides of Dreamworld and Wet N Wild. Children will love the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and Infinity interactive maze, as well as the incredible shows and entertainment at Sea World.
Parents can book a babysitter through the resort and hit the town to discover all the action of Surfers Paradise at night. Cavill Avenue has many clubs and restaurants if you feel like wining and dining and then dancing the night away. If that's not really your thing then head down to Broadbeach and try your luck at Jupiters Casino, or take a stroll along Surfers Paradise beachfront on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday nights and discover the arts, crafts and entertainment at the night markets.
