Surfers Paradise Vision

As the celebrated heart of the Gold Coast, Surfers Paradise plays a vital role in helping to create a Bold Future for the city.

Surfers Paradise has been an iconic tourist destination since the 1950s and continues to attract nearly 15,000 overnight visitors a day. It is home to more than 20,000 permanent residents and 3,700 businesses, with the residential population set to swell to 38,700 by 2031.

In February 2011, City of Gold Coast invited residents, businesses, visitors and stakeholders to share their vision for Surfers Paradise to 2040.


Surfers Paradise is the heart of the Gold Coast and an international tourist destination where people come to visit and live, to discover a relaxed urban lifestyle that is fun and entertaining, stylish and cultured on the shores of a world famous beach.
