A thriving modern urban area occupying a shoreline that is among the most spectacular in the world, Surfers Paradise holidays have long been the archetypal Australian beach escape. Despite its rapid modernisation and development, the main attraction of Surfers Paradise, its world class beach, remains spectacular and accessible and the shops, bars, cafes and restaurants nearby simply add to its enjoyability.
The easiest way to begin Surfers Paradise holidays is via Gold Coast International Airport which is connected to the town by a 30-minute shuttle bus. The airport receives flights from all around Australia, New Zealand and major Asian cities. Surfers Paradise holidays in summer are legendary within Australia, marked by scorching days and vibrant throngs of happy holidaymakers. However, throughout winter temperatures are unlikely to dip below 20 degrees celsius and it is an ideal time to enjoy the beach free of crowds. Surfers Paradise is in the Australian Eastern Standard Time zone (GMT+10).
With pristine sand stretching as far as the eye can see, the beach really is the centre of life in Surfers Paradise. Regardless of your level of surfing proficiency Surfers Paradise holidays are an ideal opportunity to hit the waves. For experts there are many challenging breaks, while for the absolute novice there are a large number of quality surf schools. For a break from the beach, a visit to Australia's tallest building, Q1, gives a phenomenal view of the surrounding landscape. Australia's largest and most famous nightlife district, the bars and nightclubs of the Gold Coast Nightlife Precinct, near Cavill Avenue, are the perfect location for a well-earned drink after some late night shopping at the Cavill Mall or Centro Surfers Paradise with its collection of designer boutiques.
