Surfers Paradise Beachfront Markets

Located on Surfers Paradise’s Esplanade, the Surfers Paradise Beachfront Markets are a place for locals and tourists to gather. Taking place on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday night, the market features over 100 stalls that visitors can peruse while enjoying live entertainment and street food bites. Plus, there are plenty of fun things for kids to pick up at the stalls and lots of souvenirs to choose from either to give to their friends at school or to take home and remember their holiday by.

Our tip: Be sure to ask a friendly passer-by to take your family photo under the iconic ‘Surfers Paradise’ sign, keeping the memory of your fun family holiday paused in time to reminisce on when you’re home again.
