Bustling nightlife, great shopping and a legendary surfing beach make this avenue the exciting centre of Surfer’s Paradise on the Gold Coast.

find fun and entertainment along the way.

Shop at the stores that line this pedestrian-only mall to find well-known surf brands, luxury goods or bargain fashion accessories.

Show off your new beachwear at the world-famous Surfers Paradise Beach that is located at the end of the avenue. Swim, surf or laze on the golden sand and watch the locals compete in a game of beach volleyball.

See the meter maids strut past in their golden bikinis as they go about their mission of topping up expired parking meters. This quirky local tradition began in the 1960s as a publicity stunt and quickly became a classic fixture of Surfers Paradise life.

Dine at one of the many restaurants on the avenue and choose from an astonishing array of cuisines from all over the globe. Finish your meal with dessert at one of the gelatarias and an evening stroll among the palm trees. Look for street performers and free music acts at the mall stage.

Sip a tropical fruit cocktail or have a night out dancing at the bars and nightclubs. Pamper yourself with a stay in one of the luxurious hotels that are located within easy walking distance. Book in for a day of indulgence at the resort spas. A range of accommodation styles can be found around the mall to suit all budgets.
