What you need to know

Those in search of Surfers Paradise's best possible spot to buy souvenirs should be sure to attend the Surfers Paradise Beachfront Markets, which take place weekly on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays in the evening from 4:00pm to 9:00pm. Featuring over 120 stalls selling all sorts of goods including trinkets, jewellery, opals, and other handcrafted wares, the variety on offer here is impressive for shoppers looking to snag a unique bargain. The markets feature an ever-changing lineup of exhibitors so that no two visits are ever quite the same, and offer very reasonable prices for souvenirs as opposed to many of the nearby commercial Surfers Paradise retail stores.

The markets bring with them a buzzing, upbeat atmosphere and are nearly always busy, while live entertainment and street performances typically take place and add to the vibrancy. The Surfers Paradise Beachfront Markets thus make for a great place to enjoy a walk at the end of the day, and when coupled with the absolute waterfront location and the often beautiful sunsets, are a great capper to any busy morning. In addition, while no food is sold at the stalls themselves, their location just across the road from a huge number of restaurants and fast food outlets helps negate this somewhat. Even if you're just perusing without aiming to buy anything, visiting the Surfers Paradise Beachfront Markets is an easily accessible and leisurely activity for visitors to the city.
