Surfers Paradise
One of the Gold Coast's many theme parks, Sea World, is located on The Spit at Main Beach and has dolphin, shark and sea lion shows, thrill-a minute ski shows, the exhilarating Bermuda Triangle ride and more.

From nearby Fisherman's Wharf you can cruise across the Broadwater and out to sea for a day of game fishing or enjoy a host of watersports including jetskiing and parasailing. For a real adrenalin rush, dive off a platform suspended high above the water at Bungee Downunder. Marina Mirage, also on The Spit, is the home of stylish boutiques and waterfront restaurants and cafes. Surfers Paradise is renowned for resort shopping, restaurants, bars and nightclubs. Sit back and watch buskers, calypso bands and magicians get up to tricks in Cavill Mall.

Conrad Jupiters at Broadbeach offers an oasis of restaurants, bars, nightclub and authentic English pub, plus a live stage show and 24-hour action and excitement at Jupiters Casino. Linking the casino-resort complex and the casual shopping and dining precincts of Broadbeach is a modern monorail operating daily from 7am to midnight.

Every shopper's fantasy comes alive at Pacific Fair, Queensland's largest shopping complex. Spend a day wandering through cobbled streets, dazzling arcades and department stores.

The beaches are long and wide with texture and colour of fine demerara sugar, extending for miles in both directions. Surfing needs high seas and breakers, so swimming can be dangerous and lots of people get into trouble here. Follow the safety code indicated by flags and ensure a lifeguard is on duty. Water sports other than surfing are best practised in the calmer waters of the intracoastal waterway to the W of the resort.
