When considering the best surfing spots around the Globe, the first destination that pops up is Australia. Its literally perfect beaches are always inviting and the wind conditions and faultless waves count as the most suitable ones. One of the most famous destinations lies in Queensland, Australia and for its unbeatable qualities it is called Surfers Paradise. However surfing is not the only adventure the tourists happily enjoy here.


Eager students, energetic surfers, fun-loving families – all possible kinds of visitors gather here in the peak season between October and March. This place is magical. With nearly 70km of heavenly beaches and several hundred kilometers of tidal rivers and basins, Surfers Paradise (or Surfers’ as the locals call it) is a haven for water sport enthusiasts.


The rather strange blend of city and beach lifestyle works out perfectly well for this place. The all-night action around the town is infamous; night-clubs, discos, exciting bars, cabaret restaurants, Gold Coast theaters…the list simply goes on and on. In the heart of the town, Orchid and Cavill Avenues are the ideal places to start with.


Those visitors who suffer from shopping mania will get lost here. The opportunities are vast; this modern city is swarming with a variety of both top-end designers and outlet bargains, or the charming beachfront markets.


In case the tourists have some energy left in the morning, they should go for beach volleyball, bungee jumping, mini golf or even visit local stylish golf courses. Art lovers will enjoy the numerous art galleries featuring both local artists and Aboriginal exhibitions.


A trip to the nearby Green Mountains is a great option for families or anyone wishing to relax in a different environment. There are several tourist packages, which include wine tasting, or trips to Mount Tamborine.
