Surfer’s Paradise is found on the Gold Coast along the east coast of Queensland, Australia, and as the name says it is pure tourist gold. If you love the beach, this is the place for you.
Surfer’s Paradise beach regularly tops the list of the best beaches in the world, and this is not a surprise, the beach is pure white sand and crystal blue waters as far as the eye can see.
The weather is sunny year round, making it a perfect holiday destination. Summer temperatures average between 19 to 29 degrees Celsius, while in winter there are only slightly cooler temperatures averaging 9 to 21 degrees Celsius.
The coast is bathed in golden sunshine and besides spending the day at the beach or surfing, you can also take a boat trip and if you’re lucky you may see a Humpback Whale flapping its tail in the water.
On the inland side of Surfer’s Paradise there are many canals that can be explored by speed boat with houses right on the water’s edge, but don’t jump in for a swim because some of the canals have sharks roaming around.
Besides all the beach activities there are many world class shops and restaurants, and great nightlife. It is a place to forget your daily life and just relax and have fun!
Many people come for a holiday and end up staying for a lifetime. Along the canals away from the main beach and bustle of Surfer’s Paradise Boulevard, there are many homes. Holiday beach houses, as well as permanent homes some more lavish than others.
Having a boat is actually a luxurious necessity in Surfer’s paradise as it is a fantastic way to get around the canals and explore the area.
Brisbane, the capital city of Queensland is approximately an hour and a half away, and many come from the city on the weekends to get away and enjoy the fun in Surfer’s Paradise.
Buying a property here can be a great investment as Surfer’s Paradise is a year-round destination and renting out your beach house or apartment to tourists can provide a very good supplemental income.
I have enjoyed reminiscing my own wonderful experience of visiting Surfer’s Paradise, my excitement at running on the beach to dip my feet in the Pacific Ocean for the first time is one of my favorite memories.
Surfer’s Paradise feels as good as it looks, and the beach seems to go on much longer than its 3km length.
It is a place where unforgettable memories are made.
