Hilton Surfers Paradise has introduced a new kind of indulgence to one of Queensland’s most vibrant cities and has become the venue of choice for those celebrating a special occasion.

An unrivalled level of events expertise combines with a spectacular range of unique event spaces to offer the ideal destination for weddings, social gatherings, parties, and special events of all kinds.

The ballroom, on level one, caters for up to 220 for a sit down dinner or up to 350 for a cocktail party. Featuring a brilliant feature ceiling, timber panels and toned metallic fabric accents, the ballroom offers an inspiring contemporary setting and is a terrific backdrop for events. A versatile, pillar-less space, the  ballroom splits into two for more those intimate occasions. Built in sound and wide format drop down screens, also cater for presentations, live music and entertainment with ease.

On the same level as the ballroom, a pre-function lobby features floor-to-ceiling glass windows looking over the popular High Street retail precinct. Two small boardrooms are additional spaces on this level, and can easily serve as dressing rooms, storage, preparation areas, or mini meeting rooms, and the business centre puts technology rights at your fingertips.

The Deck on Level 2 is our most popular area for social events, in particular weddings. This 1500 square metres outdoor space, decorated with stylish pools, landscapes gardens, water features and manicured lawns oozes a modern sophistication, unique to Hilton Surfers Paradise. The Deck is made up of four smaller spaces which each have their own unique characteristics and offer individual privacy.

The Podium is located adjacent to undercover Deck Bar, The Pavilion is an exclusive grassed area complete with its own BBQ Huts, The Outdoor Terrace is a stylish space with a built in Cabana and modern alfresco seating, and the Poolside event space, offers a spectacular outlook over the hotel’s 40m feature swimming pool and glistening waterfall.

Indoors, the Hilton Executive Lounge on Level 15, and FIX Bar and Salt grill restaurant on Level 1, are all equally well designed and suited to private functions and events, and with celebrity Chef Luke Mangan’s restaurant quality menus available regardless of what space you choose, you really can’t go wrong.

Best of all, because the hotel is in the heart of exciting Surfers Paradise, when your event is over, the city and its the city and its world-famous attractions – including the beloved Surfers Paradise beach –are right on your doorstep.
