The Wax Museum

Surfers Paradise, Gold Coast Area

The Gold Coast Wax Museum in Surfers Paradise is Australia's largest Museum of its kind, featuring more than 110 life-size wax effigies, copies of the British Crown Jewels and dioramas of Australian history.

Come face to face with Presidents and former Prime Ministers, Entertainers, members of the Royal Family, Dictators, and many others whose lives have all left an indelible mark on our world. You will find dozens of others from the Arts, Politics, Entertainments, Science, Medicine, and the Military.

The Wax Museum is listed as a Great Wax Museum of the World. The figures have been crafted by leading overseas sculptors to international standards, equal in quality to the world's best.

The incredibly intricate detail includes hair applied one strand at a time, requiring many working hours, and the eyes are so real they seem to follow you around.

In the Famous People section, wander through at your leisure viewing the people who have been authentically reproduced.

The Chamber of Horrors (set in its own medieval dungeon) is a guided tour covering the grim, staggering record of Human Cruelty throughout the ages. More spine chilling than fiction, it is the only display of its kind in the world.

Surfers Paradise Beach

Surfers Paradise, Gold Coast Area
Free Entry
Australia's famous Surfers Paradise Beach lies at the heart of the Queensland Gold Coast. The two kilometre stretch of golden sand and rolling surf is patrolled by three lifeguard towers, all keeping watch over designated swimming and surfing areas. Riding a wave here sits highly on the bucket list of holiday makers and made simple with hire boards and surf lessons available and beach breaks extending the full length of the beach. The best conditions for more experienced surfers are on the outer bar with moderate swell and offshore winds, or at the Nerang entrance wall where fisherman also try their luck catching the perfect one. The beach itself is backed by a fenced fore-dune with plenty of signed access tracks from the esplanade to the sand and lined in seating areas and barbecues with ocean views for those wanting to just take it all in. The adjacent foreshore precinct is a hive of energy and home to towering beachside accommodation, alfresco dining and night markets.
