Surfers Paradise, the home of Beyond the Sand, is centrally located on the Gold Coast and is easy to get to no matter where you are coming from. There are plenty of accommodation and dining options available to help make your experience one to remember.
The City of Gold Coast encourages all Gold Coast residents and visitors to leave the car at home and make active travel part of their daily routine. The program promotes and encourages active and healthy forms of transport including walking, cycling, carpooling and public transport. Walking, catching public transport and carpooling are great ways to actively travel in our city.
If you are travelling from the Southern end of the Coast, such as Coolangatta, you will need to catch the bus from the dry side of the highway and hop off at the Broadbeach South Tram Station Bus Interchange, then catch the tram to Cavill Avenue. If you are travelling from Southport or further north you can jump on the beachside and head on down to Surfers Paradise. Plan your Journey here.
The G:link Light Rail connects Broadbeach to Helensvale and back again in a 40 minute one-way trip. Surfers Paradise has several stations allowing easy access the precinct, but if you’re looking to get off and head straight to the beachfront to see the gallery of colour, movement and music we recommend Cavill Avenue. All stations cater for passengers of all mobility levels.
