WATCH: Surfers Paradise decked out for Christmas celebrations

Head into Surfers Paradise this festive season and you will see that it has been transformed into a summertime wonderland in the lead-up to Christmas!

Santa has arrived at his new home in Cavill Mall –  a beach shack decked out with surfboards, a thong Christmas tree and a giant advent calendar with loads of prizes for visitors to win.

For his stay in the precinct, the jolly man is also rocking a much more casual look, with boardshorts replacing his standard red pants.


The countdown has also begun to the annual Carols on the Beach event which will hit the sand on Sunday, December 23 from 6:30pm. The event will see a host of seasoned performers take to the stage to perform an array of traditional and modern carols and will conclude with a fireworks spectacular at 8pm.

Prior to the carols, there will also be a meet and greet with everyone’s favourite Looney Tunes characters on the foreshore from 3pm with Bugs Bunny, Tweety, Daffy Duck, and Sylvester all to make an appearance.
