Surfers Paradise is a tremendously popular tourist haunt with long stretches of beach, many hotels (including the Palazzo Versace), restaurants and a variety of shops.
Unfortunately we were there during "Schoolies" where high school leavers from all over Australia group up in Surfers Paradise, go rowdy and cause a lot of havoc.
Best be avoiding Surfers Paradise during November and December.
