Sun, Sand and Surf – Where to Stay in Australia

One of the many great attractions of Australia is the ability to surf and enjoy beaches in the sun at most times of the year. But there is more to any visit to Australia than just surfing - you need the nightlife too. So where are the best places to go to surf and enjoy the sun whilst remaining close enough to the cities to enjoy them at night?


The first choice of course has to be Queensland. Queensland is renowned worldwide for its surfing. With surfing events are a regular feature on the beaches, and more surf schools than you would care to count, Queensland is the place to be for a surfing holiday. Gold Coast apartments are plentiful and will offer you the pleasure of the beaches and the sea whilst being situated in the heart of one of the most vibrant areas of Australia.

What is within reach?

Surfers Paradise: With a name like Surfers Paradise it is clear to all that this is the place to go for good waves in the sun. This stretch of 3 kilometres of golden sand faces onto the Pacific Ocean and offers thrillseekers some of the best waves available. The beach is patrolled by Surf Lifesavers who will ensure that you are safe at all times.

Gold Coast nightlife: The Gold Coast has a vibrant and exciting nightlife full of people relaxing after a hard day of surfing. Whether you want to find yourself some fine dining or chow down on a kangaroo burger before hitting the bars, you’ll be spoilt for choice on the Gold Coast.

The Great Barrier Reef: No trip to Australia can neglect a journey to the Great Barrier Reef. It is the largest structure made by living organisms on the planet and you can even see it from space!


Sydney boasts a vast number of fantastic beaches where you can enjoy the surf of Australia. Stretching golden sands can be found all along the coast of Sydney and there are endless places to learn to surf and hit the big waves. Sydney has a fantastic city life so finding a good serviced apartment in Sydney will enable you to experience the best of both worlds. Whether you want to spend your time on the beach or enjoy the views over Sydney from the top of the Harbour Bridge, you will never be bored in Sydney.

What is within reach?

Sydney nightlife: Darling Harbour, Oxford Street, Kings Cross, George Street and Circular Quay are but a few of the many locations in Sydney where you can have a fantastic night out. There will never be an end to night time entertainment in Sydney.

The Blue Mountains: If you should find that you’ve had enough surfing for the week, a trip to the Blue Mountains is essential. The views that await you at the peak of 1,215 metre high sandstone plateaus are indescribable.

The Opera House: No visit to Sydney is complete without a visit to the Opera House. It is iconic and impressive from the outside but just wait until you see a sell-out show in this phenomenal building.
