About Us

The Chill Out Zone is a project of the Gold Coast Youth Service, and funded by the Queensland Government through the Department of Communities.

The Chill Out Zone service is the first of its kind in the world. The Chill Out Zone is an immediate care service located in Surfers Paradise, Queensland. The service is staffed by professionals in various fields, and works to minimize harm to individuals who come to our late night precinct in Surfers.

The Chill Out Zone service operates each Friday and Saturday night from 10.30 pm to 4.30 am, from a purpose-built van located in Victoria Park (Opposite Surf Parade and East Nightclub). We operate patrols in and around the Broadbeach precinct and are happy for you to contact us on Friday and Saturday nights during 10:30 pm to 4:00 am on 0410 716 561. Note that this number is non-operational outside these times!
