    Surfers Paradise is a delightful place for family outings under the sun. Conveniently located across the road are numerous restaurants, complete with underground parking. It's a wonderful spot for beach walks and water fun with the kids. Highly recommended for a family hangout.

    Macintosh Island Park is a wonderful oasis of a park close to Main Beach, Narrowneck and Surfers Paradise. With plenty of shade amongst the trees, there is a lake, plenty of birdlife (such as peacocks), a play area, picnic tables, all in a peaceful and tranquil location just a short walk from the hustle and bustle of Main Beach and Surfers Paradise. A wonderful place to escape the crowds for an hour or two.

    There were a large number of stalls with a lot of variety.
    Nice when it's a bit cooler in the evening.
    We found some nice jewelry.

    Part of the surfers paradise precinct, just off cavill mall, nice place to hang out watching the world go by, plenty of eateries, to enjoy, larger than life electric dinosaurs and other varieties for kids to enjoy, beware they can get a little out of control.

    Fun for the whole family! Been a few times over the years and it’s good to see some new additions to keep things fresh. Didn’t think the 7D movie would be good, but it was probably the highlight!

    This shopping centre has been fully renovated and is much improved from the past.

    Its the largest and most well known mall in Surfers Paradise.

    As a child I use to visit to play games ion the amusement centre.

    There appears to have been an addition with some new tenants like El Camino Mexican, Thai Restaurant, and ice cream shops and more.

    On the first floor where the eateries are located you get great views of Surfers Paradise Beach.

    It was amazing! The puzzles were really fun to do as it is tricky and cool at the same time. The entire game is very well made with every step being something that can lead us to achieving our goal. Our gamemaster, Trent was very nice to us and was friendly too. I would definitely recommend to go here!

    Visiting from UK, it was raining in Australia so we wanted something easy, fun and indoors and this place does all that. My teenage sons had fun, smiled and were entertained for an hour or so.
