Surfers Paradise beach (1591C) is Queensland's best known beach. A lifesaving reel was placed on the beach in 1921 and the Surfers Paradise Surf Life Saving Club founded in 1924. Today it lies at the heart of the Gold Coast tourist trade and is frequently visited by hundreds of thousands of tourists from around the world. This 2 km section of beach is backed by a fenced foredune, with numerous access tracks, The Esplanade and the most highly developed section of the Australian coast. The surf club and three lifeguard towers watch over this rip dominated beach.
