Surfers Paradise Gold Coast Queensland Australia
Surfers Paradise, population 11 965, located 80 kilometres, 50 miles from Brisbane, is the heart of the Gold Coast and where party-goers can find numerous night-clubs, restaurants, shops, hotels and entertainment. Rows of high-rise development characterise the beachfront, to cater for the massive tourism industry.
Today Surfers Paradise is a place for young people. The hoards of students who arrive from New South Wales and Victoria after the completion of examinations, and the surfers who hang around the promenade waiting for a good wave, are today's clientele for the town.
