There isn’t tonnes I can say about this place, as the majority of my time here was spent in the hostel (Bunk) or outside of Surferes Paradise. Unless you have the money to go to the water parks and theme parks, there isn’t a lot to do here in the day. But, it’s not all bad! Some of my favourite memories were made here. On our first night in the hostel, we met a lovely couple Helena and Harris – who we have actually ended up spending the rest of our time up the east coast with.

The days were pretty chill, spent lounging on the beach or wandering the streets; lined with incredible skyscrapers. The nights were definitely the highlight. Surfers Paradise is renowned for being the ‘party stop’ on the east coast – living up to its name as the Miami of Australia. Most evenings were spent playing numerous drinking games and drinking too much goon, which usually resulted in a midnight dip in the hot tub!

Away from the built up area of Surfers, we found paradise at Tallebudgera Creek in Burliegh Heads; a secluded haven, just a short tram ride away that provided breathtaking views of the Gold Coast skyline. The creek had the clearest water I had ever seen, full of schools of shimmering fish. This little title adventure was the perfect way to end such a lovely trip.
