There are many events on the Gold Coast all year round, many are free. It’s not often that the sky isn’t being lit up by fireworks or there isn’t some festival we are celebrating.
Why not check out the Gold Coast City Councils Events page and see what is on when you are coming to visit.
At Surfers Rent A Car we’ve put together just a few events that are popular with tourists and locals.
Gatorade Queensland Triathlon Series
Is your new year’s resolution to get fit? Why not kick start the year with the Gatorade Queensland Triathlon Series. It’s a great chance for young and old to challenge themselves.
We love fireworks here on the Gold Coast and to celebrate our love for pyrotechnics we put on quite a show with SeaFire. An amazing aerial firework display that provides a world class show that you won’t want to miss.
