Surfers Paradise Cavill Avenue

Named after Jim Cavill, the original hotellier who effectively gave birth to Surfers Paradise tourism, Cavill Avenue, and Cavill Mall are the focal point of the Gold Coast. Lined with shops, nightclubs, bars, and fast food outlets, the street has recently undergone some landscaping. The street stretches from the famous 'Surfers Paradise' sign next to the beach on The Esplanade, down through an array of restaurants, shops and nightclubs. There's lots of surf art and regular live music performances from buskers lining the street at night. The arcades and streets nearby are the real heart of Surfers Paradise, with fantastic (cheap) Asian food, surfboard shops, tattoo parlours, T-Shirt emporiums and secret nightclub doors.

In foreground of the photo you can see the famous guitar at the entrance of the popular Hard Rock Cafe. The venue is full of music memorabilia with both indoor and outdoor dining options. You can book your dining experience here.
