  • Magnificent 360 degree views of the Coast, Surfers Paradise and the Hinterland. Nothing more to add!  more »
  • Well worth a visit , we saw it on the tv show Travel Guides.We were not brave enough to do the climb but watched others.If you have a gold Entertainment card,you get a discount.  more »
  • Went up last Thursday, and was a little disappointed. The view was good, but for 25$ (sorta Eiffel Tower prices) you expect a little more. We went at dusk so we got to see it during the light and dark...  more »

  • An absolute MUST for anybody visiting the area, and an ever better spot to get your bearings! I bought the $36 annual membership and I highly recommend it, because it gets you unlimited entries (at any time of day) plus discounts in the cafe/restaurant as well as entry to the various live music events (which I haven't seen yet but am intending to). Make it your first stop on arriving (with the gorgeous beaches of course).
  • As a tourist in this city, this observation deck has been part of our "must see" list. And it was a great experience. The food served to our group was excellent, the deck is amazing. And the high speed elevator.... ⚡️💨
  • Views spectacular!! Sat to have a meal of wedges which I thought was reasonable and delicious. The milkshake was $8 which I thought a little steep but it was nice. However was deeply unhappy with the hot choclates and coffee. They were $5 each but came in a tacky little paper cup. Seriously people. If I'm dining I want a mug. Paper cups, what a disgrace.
  • Great attraction if you get tickets included with something else (I certainly wouldn't pay $25). Amazing views obviously, and lots of informative displays without it having a museum feel to it. The building is starting to date and lose some of its glamour.
  • We came over easter. We didn't have to wait long and the views are spectacular. Definitely worth checking out. Nice cafe up the top for coffee if desired.

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. Predictably, room prices rise significantly the closer you get to the water. To enjoy the best waterfront accommodations, stay at one of the area's luxury resorts, offering suites with sea views and every imaginable modern amenity.
