||Surfer's Paradise on the Gold Coast of Australia is known for its raucous nightlife. Casinos, discos, and the bright lights of the big city glow all night long. When the sun rises and the day begins the surf takes center stage. Burrliegh Heads, Snapper Rocks, Duranbah and a host of other spots become fast, hollow, tube riding waves. The Barrel is the ultimate payoff and hoards of surfers hang in the region waiting for the surf to go off.
