Surfers Paradise Beachfront Markets
These great markets are located on the foreshore of Surfers Paradise beach and run every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday evening. Great for an evening stroll through the markets with a variety of fashion, jewellery, accessories, artwork, home wares and much more.
Situated right in the heart of Surfers Paradise Cavill Mall it is a family friendly shopping and food mall. There are buskers and entertainment and great for an evening stroll through the shops or stop in at one of the many cafes and bars.
Macintosh Island Park
Great park situated to the north of Surfers Paradise before you get to Main Beach. The park has free parking, lots of seating and bbq areas to have a picnic or is just great for a walk. There is also a fenced playground for the kids with Bigfoot’s Cave and a walkway over a bridge to the beach. It takes around 30 minutes to complete a lap around the park. Keep your eyes out for the many birds and peacocks that call the park home.
Evandale Park is situated behind the Arts centre at Bundall (just a short drive from Surfers Paradise) and is a great hidden gem for the whole family to enjoy. Don’t miss the great Farmer’s Markets held every Sunday in the park with music and a great atmosphere. There is a play area for the kids and a lake for a swim or kayak, it also has a fantastic view of the Surfers Paradise skyline.
