Fancy yourself a tour of Surfers Paradise? Start your day right and break your fast in the Isle of Capri. This tiny island is situated along the Nerang River a little north of Chevron Island and between Bundall and Surfer’s Paradise—it acts a bridge for these two bustling suburbs.
Having the best breakfast in Gold Coast will centre you for the many activities you have planned for the day. This riverside suburb is mostly inhabited by well-to-do locals so you won’t get that touristy vibe you get from Surfers Paradise.
Before heading to Surfers’ Paradise, you can also check out the quaint cafes and a small selection of shops.
What to Do in Surfers’ Paradise
Surfers’ Paradise is right smack in the heart of Gold Coast and is one of the most popular destinations in all of Australia. It caters to a wide variety of clientele and offers all kinds of accommodation options ranging from luxury hotels, giant resorts, hostels, and even campsites. There is no shortage of things to do in this lively suburb—surfing, swimming, bungee jumping, seaplane flights, hot air balloon rides, cruises, and bike tours to name a few.
You can take a dip in the Main Beach, Budds Beach, or MacIntosh Island to enjoy the clear water and fine sands Gold Coast is famous for. You can also take a tour of the Nerang River and chance a peek at Chevron Island, a more residential isle much like Isle of Capri, on your downtime.
You will need energy come the night, so you can walk around and choose from a wide variety of restaurants offering plenty of multicultural food choices. For the party person in you, you can check out Cavill Avenue with its assortment of clubs, themed venues, and adult bars.
Bundall Side Trip
For some art, you can squeeze in some time at nearby Bundall and head to the Arts Centre Gold Coast, which houses a theatre, arts café, and the Gold Coast City Art Gallery, one of the country’s most famous public art galleries.
Surfers’ Paradise is one of the best attractions in this area. What would you expect of it, given its name?
