Just 10km inland from the Pacific ocean, the coastal scenery transforms into a scenic hinterland of forest-clad mountains and towering waterfalls. Drive through rural plantations and vineyards, or take a nocturnal tour into the caves in search of glow worms.
At Crowne Plaza Surfers Paradise you're just 6.5km from Sea World, which houses the world's largest man-made lagoon for sharks. Watch fearsome bull whalers through the huge underwater windows, or head for safer waters to watch the friendly dolphins perform at Dolphin Cove.
Ask our dedicated Concierge about the new attractions and shows at theme parks near Surfers Paradise. The latest white-knuckle rides at Warner Bros Movie World include the Arkham Asylum, a rollercoaster that reaches speeds of up to 85km and will see you pull 4.2Gs on this not to be missed coaster.
Don't Go Home Without
Taking a surf lesson on the sun-soaked beaches of Surfers Paradise. On calm summer days the waves are perfect for beginners and, even if you do take one too many tumbles, you can always retreat back to the two pools at Crowne Plaza Surfers Paradise.
Ask our Concierge to point the way to Broadbeach's Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, a riverside mall eschewing Surfers Paradise's well-trodden high-street names. Stroll along the beach to Surfers Paradise or Broadbeach and take in the local markets.
