Stretching from the iconic Surfers Paradise sign on the Esplanade down through an array of restaurants, shops and fast food outlets is Cavill Avenue - the beating heart of Surfers Paradise. Arguably one of the most popular tourist destinations on the coast with a three-kilometre strip of golden sand at the doorstep, Cavill’s pedestrian lined mall is open both day and night drawing crowds from buskers, street performers and live events. Whether you're after a long lunch or something to grab and go, you can't go past Paradise Centre on Cavill Mall.
Pitch up at a table at Kitty O'Shea's for a schnitty and a side of people watching or see the bustling crowds of beach-goers shift to steady streams of nightlife lovers from the balcony of Surfers Paradise Beer Garden. Grab a burger at Grill'd or hit the beach with a burrito from Guzman y Gomez. Check out the loaded chilli cheese fries from Lord of the Fries or experience some Filipino cuisine at USOK Grill.
Cradle a cappuccino from Starbucks and an original glazed from Krispy Kreme Doughnuts as you cruise through Cavill Avenue or soak in the sunshine as you slurp up a Mango Magic from Boost Juice. Grab your midday fix at Gotcha Tea and gulp down a signature bubble tea or try a pearl milk tea at Gong Cha while you take a gander through the shops.
Check out the future of fast food at Shiba Wings, Australia's first crypto diner, or wolf down a Whopper at Hungry Jack's. For a leisurely lunch transport yourself to an intimate table at Love Italy. End the evening at Surfers Pizza and Kebab or grab a famous waffle cone ice cream at Royal Copenhagen for the walk home.
For an endless list of cuisines that will transport you to all corners of the world and satisfy your tastebuds no matter the time of day, you can’t go past the dining options on Cavill Avenue and what is undoubtedly the centre of attraction at Paradise Centre.
