Christmas in Surfers Paradise
Christmas and surfing probably isn’t something you would generally put together however, the Gold Coast’s leading tourist attraction offers a few things to do this festive season from the Christmas lights at Cavill Mall, to Santa and his surfboard-pulling kangaroos to Surfer’s Paradise transforming into a sunny Christmas venue for all the family. Christmas Carols also join in the fun on the 22nd of December with Carols on the Beach, kicking off at 6:30 – 8:00pm.
