Positioned right in the heart of Surfers Paradise, just 160m from the beach, the Conference venue Mantra on View Hotel is ideally located within walking distance of most Surfers Paradise accommodation, restaurants and shopping precincts.

Facilities and services for people with disabilities are available.

At night, the Mantra will transform for our unmissable Canapé Welcome Function and official Conference Gala Dinner.

Surfers Paradise

Surfers Paradise’s sand, sun and surfing lifestyle is iconic. “Surfers”, as it’s colloquially referred to, is a premier international tourist and entertainment destination that hosts 20,000 visitors per day. The area has wide selection of accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets and is perfectly located for delegates attending the Agricultural Shows of Australian Conference at the Mantra on View.

Staying in Surfers Paradise means you can take advantage of everything the Gold Coast has to offer. The theme parks are here – Dreamworld, Movieworld, Seaworld, Wet ’n’ Wild, WhiteWater World as well as Outback Aussie Spectacular. You’ve got The Star Gold Coast if you’re feeling lucky and of course the famous Gold Coast beaches. There’s fun to be had throughout Surfers Paradise, from the golden beaches, to great shopping and excellent dining.

Talk to the Mantra tour desk about the wide choice of activities. Take a day trip to Mount Tamborine in the hinterland, visit a winery, or simply browse the nearby shops and sample the food at local restaurants. Hire a jetski and take in the waters from a new perspective or soar majestically over it all in a hot air balloon. There are Segways, Aquaduck Tours, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and a great mixture of art and craft markets.

You can spend a day at the races at Kingston Park or get another type of adrenalin rush going while you’re there with a thrilling bungy jump. Depending on the time of year you visit the Gold Coast you’ll find all types of exciting events from the Gold Coast 600 to Coolangatta Gold Festival of Surf.

Eating’s always a pleasure at the many Gold Coast surf clubs dotted along the coast line or you can watch a whale if the season is right.

In the mood to be a little amazed – visit Ripley’s Believe It or Not or go all out and spend a night at Draculas. Putt Putt Golf is available for a little family fun. You’ve got food and wine trails, farmers markets and fresh seafood to be bought straight off the boats. You can’t go past the Gold Coast for all round entertainment and Mantra on View Hotel is in the centre of it all.
