Surfer's Paradise


A trip to the Gold Coast isn't complete without spending time at Surfer's Paradise.

World-class waves

Surfer's Paradise, located on the Gold Coast of Queensland, Australia, is a vibrant coastal hub renowned for its golden beaches, the waves, and lively atmosphere. It offers a perfect blend of sun-soaked sands, bustling nightlife, and a laid-back surf culture that attracts surfers and travelers from around the globe.

Easily accessible

The tram system in Surfer's Paradise is called the "G:link."

It's a light rail network that connects various locations along the Gold Coast, including Surfer's Paradise, making it a convenient mode of transportation for both locals and tourists to explore the area's attractions, beaches, and urban centers.

If you're staying in the area for an extended period of time, I recommend you purchase a card to make your transportation more convenient.

Getting a G:link card for the tram at Surfer's Paradise is a simple process and allows you to "tap on, tap off" quickly.
