Where to stay in Surfers Paradise

A huge draw for international vacationers, Surfers Paradise is home to a varied selection of lodgings that include spacious rental apartments, high-rise hotels, and economical backpacker hostels.

  • Friendly Staff, lots of things to see. Amazing collection of weird stuff from around the world. Money well spent. Highly recommended for tourists
  • Was a good experience, the laserace was great fun. The kids had a blast. The last room was also a lot of fun. Service was great, staff were friendly. Little bit pricey but won't break the bank.
  • Really Interesting collection. Lots of weird and wonderful artifacts and plenty of interactive games. It is deceptively large with 5 or 6 big rooms filled with artifacts. We spent 1 and a half hours there. Could have been there all day and still found new artifacts. The laser maze was so much fun, but I think I bruised my knees leaping over them.
  • Spent nearly 2hr there. If you take the time to read and watch everything you could spend longer. Good laughs along the way. A good experience.
  • Interesting place to take the kids. Walked past it for over 10 years and never went in, just wish I had done it earlier!
