Surfers Paradise – Mix Cancun & Las Vegas With A Little Huntington Beach

Surfers Paradise Beach
The beach in Surfers Paradise

Surfers Paradise in the Gold Coast of Australia is a city for tourists. Comprised of mostly bars, clubs, restaurants, hotels, and apartments, the city caters to all types of travelers. If you plan on visiting around November / December, know that the city tends to be taken over by schoolies – students on break who party non stop. This may not be the best time to visit if thats not what you’re looking for, however, for some of you maybe it is?

Surfers Paradise is not the type of city that has anything unique to offer. The things you’ll be doing here are more traditional types of tourism. You may find yourself on a boat cruise through the canals, taking surf lessons, realxing on the beach, kayaking, or visiting one of the many theme parks. This isn’t to say it’s not worth a visit, especially if you’re around Southern Queensland (Brisbane area). Surfers Paradise is a little more than an hour long train from Brisbane, costing about $14 each way.

Tip: If you’re looking for a party, take the hour long bus down to Byron Bay for a few days
