Come to ‘Paradise’ and Surf All Day

Surfers Paradise must be the best known beach in the entire world. Three kilometers of golden sand on the coast of the Pacific Ocean, this is where Australians, and people from all over the world, come to hang loose and play in the surf. This is one of the most iconic beaches on the planet and it’s set against the backdrop of skyscrapers on the Gold Coast of Queensland, Australia.

What to Do Here

Surfers Paradise is the perfect fusion of a relaxed beach life but right next to all the things a vibrant city can offer. Holiday accommodation is plentiful and there are theme parks for family oriented holidays, and nature trails for all the family to enjoy.

Try out the Aquaduck safari along the any waterways in this area and let the kids have a go at driving the vehicle. They will love this bus, painted up like a giant duck, which picks up people along the way, drives onto the sand and ends up traversing the water just like a boat! See Millionaires Row and all the other fascinating sights along the way before getting back to dry land.

Culture vultures are not left out either and the area around Surfers Paradise has an awful lot on offer. There is never a bad time to visit since there is always something going on. If it is glamour that is needed, visit the Hats & High Tea event in January to rub shoulders with the rich and famous.

At the Cavill Mall Stage in January also, the Coast Acoustics Showcase will have enough live entertainment to satisfy even the most fussiest of tastes. Or, for those who love sport, the National Beach Volleyball Series takes place right on the beach of course. Kitty O’Sheas is the place to be for the open mic night where everyone who can sing or play an instrument is invited to get up on the stage and do their thing!

Now, everyone and his mother must have heard of Ripley’s Believe it or Not programme. Well, Ripley has a museum right here. Called ‘From Here to Maternity’ the place is filled with fertility symbols from all over the world. This one may be a little x-rated for the kids to go see. It is expected that the museum will open in 2012 and it has to be seen to be believed, or not as the case may be! For the whole family there are art museums and wax museums to visit so it is just down to personal taste as to which ones are the most interesting and suitable.

Of course, as one would expect in this part of the world, there is a Sea World, Dreamworld – where people can ride on the fastest and tallest ride in the world, Movie World – where ‘magic happens every day’, or so the advertising says, and many more attractions that will keep the adrenalin pumping.

Where to Stay

Australia has a whole array of different accommodation to suit the international and local holiday maker. From self-contained accommodation in Surfers Paradise to some lovely holiday houses and holiday villas a little further back from the beach itself. Holiday rentals are diverse for sure and even those who want to stay in caravans or on a camping site will still be catered for.

Getting There

The nearest International Airport to Surfers Paradise is Brisbane. From Brisbane it is only an hour or so to the centre of Surfers Paradise. The shuttles or transfers to holiday house accommodations can be arranged from your homebase when the booking is made and it may be a good idea to buy tickets for the attractions through travel agents as well to get some good tourist discounts. There is no really bad weather to be concerned about so just go when you feel like it!

The staff were very friendly and helpful and the facilities are second to none and with Coles right down stairs really made things easy. Great holiday already working out when to book our next holiday with Stays at the Chevron.

The rooms were perfect when we arrived and the woman who serviced us on arrival was very kind and attentive to any questions we had and didn't leave until she was sure we were happy. The view was amazing on the 26th floor, you get the sunset every morning (pending weather conditions). The shops are literally on the bottom floor, a couple of minutes walk away or 5 minutes walk if you want the main strip shops.
