Yay for summer! One of our favourite things to do here on the sunny heaven that is the Gold Coast during the best season of the year is spending evenings meandering along The Esplanade in the heat enjoying some of the best local foods and designs that the region has to offer at the Surfers Paradise Beachfront Markets.

Every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday night, treasure hunters, bargain spotters and after-dinner strollers make their way along the coastal stretch of more than 100 market stalls while live entertainers set the mood.

Surfers Paradise market stalls feature a variety of premium products, including fashion, jewellery, accessories, artworks, photographs, beauty products and homewares. If you’re looking for an unusual gift or one-off piece, the Surfers Paradise Beachfront Markets are your one-stop-shop, with friendly stallholders always on hand to chat about the ‘how’, ‘what’ and ‘why’ of their wares.

So next time you find yourself wrapped up in our warm, loving and rather sandy embrace, take a short detour down to the streets and take in some of the local goods!

The Surfers Paradise Beachfront Markets are located along the Surfers Paradise Foreshore (north and south of Cavill Mall).
