Green and Gold in Surfers Paradise

Green and Gold in Surfers Paradise

It feels like just moments ago we were scrubbing off the remnants of Australian flag tattoos, and now suddenly we’re searching for the green and gold zinc again. Australia Day, in all its sizzling, flag-flying, esky-filling glory, is back. But this year in Surfers Paradise, it’s spanning over five days, fair...

Tinsel and tipple – Christmas Day dining

One second we’re wrapped in woollens and complaining about southerly winds. The next, we’re salty, sunburnt and planning for an enormous Christmas lunch. Each year – somehow – Christmas time creeps around with its summer accomplice, greeting us unawares with a face full of tinsel. We’ve barely undug the cossie before...

Schoolies and Saint Nic

The beginning of summer marks a time of remarkable diversity in Surfers Paradise. While the year flows with the energy of eclectic travellers, party-loving locals and relaxed families, it’s December that holds the starkest variation in visitors: Schoolies and Santa.
