Surfers Paradise really is a sight to behold. The beachfront hub of Queensland's Gold Coast, it symbolises the aspirations of generations of Australian holiday-makers. Hosting major events such as the IndyCar Grand Prix, "Surfers" is used to the hustle and bustle.
If you travel inland, the delightful Mount Tamborine and Gold Coast Hinterland awaits to greet you with cool rainforest air. (see our "Hinterlands" section for more on the inland areas away from the beaches).
