There is perhaps no other name befitting of this splendid vacation spot than Surfers’ Paradise. Aptly named, the Gold Coast’s Surfers’ Paradise in Australia is a great destination for beach bums and surfing enthusiasts. Not only does this vacation spot provide the waves for surfing, it also provides shopping, nightlife, and other attractions. It’s not all sand in Surfers’ Paradise. The area along Gold Coast’s Cavill Avenue is the Cavill Mall which is one of the main attractions of the central business district. It is considered to be one of the most visited shopping strips in the Queensland area. It is also where night owls converge to listen to music and dancing. It also has a very beautiful skyline.

The architectural beauty of the huge skyscrapers serves as the background for the lively beach scene that this modern town is known for. At the beachfront are cafes and restaurants where visitors could get the refreshments and sustenance they need for all the energy-draining water activities. As most of the beaches in Surfers’ Paradise are patrolled, visitors generally feel safe and free to enjoy the attractions without worries. You can indulge the water lover in you with the great variety of water sport options available at the Surfers’ Paradise.

Water boards for surfing, wakeboarding, and body surfing are available for rent at the Main Beach. If you want to Jet Ski, you can rent one at the Broadwater. You can also go on a fishing charter or a whale watching cruise if you want something that’s less active. For a different vista, you can go on a 30-minute Gold Coast Seaplane Scenic Flight and regale at the view of the water from high above. Off the beach, there are other activities that await you such as bungee jumping and golf.

After the day’s activities at the beach, you can head on down the Cavill Mall for some indoor fun. Have a delightful meal at one of the Paradise Center’s restaurants and cafés. Then stroll down Orchid Avenue for a glimpse of the nightlife. You can choose from the variety of nocturnal activities offered by this commercial center. There are live bands, circus performances, balloon art, street art, and living statues to name a few. Theater performances are also available for those who would rather have a relatively quiet but eventful evening. As the Surfers’ Paradise is just a stone’s throw away from Queensland’s’ theme parks, you can even go intercity for a change in scenery.
