There are lots of things to do in Surfers Paradise that are perfect for entertaining the little ones in the family. If you have lived on the Gold Coast for a long time (or forever) but you haven’t ticked off this list, then you need to take some time to enjoy our tourist hub through the eyes of a child and take your little ones to enjoy a day in the sun discovering why Surfers Paradise is No.1 on the list of overseas tourists (and Australia is No.2 ! )

Are you visiting and have a few days to create some fun family memories while buring some energy? Pick one (or two of these quintessential ‘Surfers Paradise’ experiences and make a day of it. Have lunch and be back at your hotel in time for an afternoon walk or play on the beach.
