Map and Directions


If you are coming by bus, a national bus company will drop you off at Surfers Paradise Bus Station. You need to go in to the bus station and go to the backpacker's information desk. They will give you directions.
For after hours, head out of the transit centre to the Gold Coast Highway intersection, cross the intersection to Peninsular Drive. We are a block away from the roundabout.
Reception closes at 10.30pm, security will check in anyone that arrives after this time.

If you arrive after 6pm the backpacker's information desk will be closed. You can get Backpackers In Paradise brochure from the information desk and there is a map on the back.

If you are on foot, walk out of the bus station and turn left. Go to the end of the street and go straight across the traffic lights. Once you have crossed the road you are now on Peninsular Drive. We are on the right hand side of the road after the small round about.
