The Surfers Paradise Beachfront Markets have been operating on the Esplanade at the end of Cavill Mall, Surfers Paradise since April 1995. During this time the Beachfront Markets have become a Surfers Paradise icon that provides a unique shopping and cultural experience.
Each Wednesday, Friday and Sunday night, locals, holiday-makers and bargain-hunters make their way to the Surfers Paradise foreshore to wander along the coastal stretch of more than 100 market stalls, while live entertainment sets a cheerful mood in the gentle ocean breezes.
One of the largest markets on the Gold Coast, the Surfers Paradise Beachfront Markets feature a variety of premium and unique products, including fashion, jewellery, accessories, artworks, photographs, beauty products, home wares and services.
If you're looking for an unusual gift or one-off piece, the Beachfront Markets are your one-stop-shop, with friendly stallholders always on hand to chat about the 'how', 'what' and 'why' of their wares.
We also have a number of artisans-at-work and attraction stalls, adding to the unique variety and distinctive vibe that is the Beachfront Markets.
Make a night of it and head into Surfers Paradise for a Markets and Dinner Combo! Visit one of our many restaurants and cafes, and have a truly magical markets night. Call in to the Beachfront Markets marquee to pick up your market night dinner special vouchers as well as special offers for things to do around town!
