The Hotel: The Shore Holiday Apartments
A stone’s throw away from the sand and surf of Surfers Paradise beach, The Shore Holiday Apartments marries the laid-back Queensland vibe with a close proximity to the bustling city centre. Guests can take a dip in the heated outdoor swimming pool or spa before tackling the BBQ. The café on the ground floor is open from 7.30am to 8.30pm 7 days, otherwise, the dining and entertainment precinct of Surfers Paradise is a short walk away with countless culinary and shopping options.
One car parking spot is included for Groupies who are keen to explore outside the city or take a trip to the theme parks, or guests can consult the tour desk for sightseeing suggestions to fill their days. Public transport, including a light rail station 100 metres away, is readily available. Guests can put up their feet and relax in front of a TV with Foxtel iQ2 box in the One-Bedroom Apartment which features kitchen facilities to cook up a storm.

The Area: Surfers Paradise and Gold Coast, QLD
The Gold Coast is a magnificent sprawl of sandy beaches sandwiched between gleaming modern skyscrapers and glorious rolling waves. Just south of the hustle and bustle of Surfers Paradise is Broadbeach with glamorous shopping malls and easy access to the Star Casino.
Head straight to Surfers Paradise beach, where folks can take a surfing lesson, embark on a soft-sand run or just have a good old-fashioned splash in the blue waters. Walk up to the Esplanade, where food can be found in every form under the sun and trendy boutiques offer up clothing, gifts and homewares at a range of price points or move through to Elkhorn Avenue for designer stores including Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Prada. Try the foot of Chevron Renaissance or the DFS store on Orchid Avenue for fashion chains, or wander the leafy beachside boulevards for a relaxed high street shopping experience.
Whole days can be spent at any number of famous Gold Coast theme parks like Dreamworld, Seaworld, Wet ‘n’ Wild, Warner Bros Movie World and even Tropical Fruit World. Slightly further afield is the “green behind the gold” Hinterland, which can be explored on a day trip to Tamborine Mountain or Currumbin Valley. By night, put dancing shoes on and hit the myriad of bars, pubs and clubs within close reach.
