"Surfers Paradise" State of Queensland Things to Do Tip by Yasmi

State of Queensland Things to Do: 315 reviews and 681 photos


Surfers Paradise is a place just as cheezy as it's name! It is not really that popular with surfers because there are really a lot better places to surf along the coast. Its popularity is based on the proximity to the major theme parks around Brisbane and its shopping opportunities. Surfers Paradise is filled with huge hotels and holiday apartment houses lining on the beach. Well, our hotel room was so high up that we barely dared to go to our balcony. The place must be a lot of fun for those who like this type of places, but it was way too touristy for me.
