Backpacker Gold Coast Holiday Guide

Surfers Paradise is renowned as one of Australia's premier party destinations for backpackers and travellers offering a hub of accommodation, dining, shopping and nightlife, and is where the majority of the backpackers are located on the Gold Coast.

The Gold Coast offers backpackers a wealth of activities, and an array of dining and shopping options. For the adventurous, there are extreme watersports, theme parks, nightclubs and Jupiter's Casino. For those wanting a more relaxed experience, they can enjoy alfresco dining, hinterland wineries, a picnic in one of the many National Parks, visit the Currumbin Wildlife Bird Sanctuary, cruise to Stradbroke Island or simply laze the day away on a beautiful white sandy beach.

Backpacker resorts on the Gold Coast offer comfortable, friendly, affordable accommodation, and most are located within walking distance to the best beaches, local shopping, bars, clubs and restaurants.
