Surfers Paradise is the most frequented of the Gold Coast suburbs and symbolises what most people would associate with the region. Magnificent high rise apartment towers, outdoor dining, the beach and fun.
A concentration of high rise towers dominate the skyline making the other Gold Coast towns look well and truly under developed. This is one of the fastest growing regions in Australia and it is not surprising that one of, if not the World's tallest residential towers, Q1 is currently under construction at 'Surfers'. It will soon stand 80 stories high offering views to as far as Brisbane.
At the heart of Surfers Paradise is the bustling, always busy Cavill Mall. This is a pedestrianised precinct running between The Esplanade, on the breachfront, and The Gold Coast Highway. Cavill Mall is lined by fast food outlets, outdoor cafes, bars and restaurants and is the location for buskers and street entertainers, amusement arcades, Ripleys Believe It Or Not, the Hard Rock Cafe and shopping malls.
