Holiday Lettings in Surfers Paradise, the Gem of the Gold Coast
The development of Surfers Paradise started in the 1950s and 1960s, with the beginnings of surf culture. If you want to be right on the beach, choose one of the many holiday apartments in the high-rise buildings along the beachfront, or head a few blocks inland for larger holiday lettings with their own pool. With Brisbane just a short drive to the north, Surfers Paradise is the perfect choice for a laid-back beach holiday with the kids, or action-packed watersports break with a group of friends.
Eating out in Surfers Paradise
Surfers Paradise boasts a wide range of places to eat, from beachfront cafés serving fast food to some of Australia's finest restaurants. One of the best places for family eating is Betty's Burgers, an American diner-style burger joint selling delicious, freshly cooked burgers, milkshakes, fries, and ice cream. If you prefer fine dining, try Seaduction, which has regularly changing menus based on local ingredients with a touch of molecular gastronomy magic.

Things to do with the kids in Surfers Paradise
Surfers Paradise is a family-friendly place, and there's plenty to do with kids of all ages. One of the best places for younger members of the family is Broadwater Parklands Rockpools in Southport, where the fountains, waterfalls, paddling areas, and shallow pools make for the perfect place for cooling off on a hot day. Older kids will also enjoy a day out at Ripley's Believe it or Not, a quirky attraction featuring weird and wonderful exhibits from around the world. At the Odditorium's fully interactive exhibits, kids can measure themselves against the world's tallest man or marvel at shrunken heads.
SeaWorld, to the north of Surfers Paradise, combines the theme park experience with wildlife encounters. The park's most popular ride is Jet Rescue, where riders are strapped into jetski seats to hurtle around a 560-metre track. In addition to trying out rides, visitors can take in dolphin shows and learn about conservation and environmental protection.

Surfers Paradise days out, both on and off the beach
Most people come to Surfers Paradise for the 3km stretch of golden sand. Although there's plenty of space for everyone, the central sections can get crowded. For a quieter experience, head south to part of the beach bordering Burleigh Head Park, or north beyond SeaWorld. If you want to get a little more active between lying on the sands or paddling in the waves, there are lots of watersports on offer, from high-adrenaline jet skiing or parasailing through to gentler pursuits such as kayaking and paddleboarding. And if you're a complete beginner, not to worry – tuition and equipment hire is widely available.
Away from the beach, there are plenty of other things to do in Surfers Paradise. Take a trip up to the 77th floor of Skypoint's observation deck, where you can enjoy 360-degree panoramas of Surfers Paradise. If you're feeling brave, book a space on the SkyPoint Climb experience to be roped onto the side of the building and climb up the exterior to 270m above ground. Get your breath back after your climb with a visit to the Gold Coast Botanic Gardens in Benowa to relax amid elegant rose gardens, local plants, and butterfly gardens.
