The Gold Coast’s Best Christmas Celebrations

Santa is on his way and with Christmas just around the corner, what better way to celebrate the festive season than in true Gold Coast style?

From carols to parties and fireworks displays, there is something for every age to enjoy, making for an extra special pre-Christmas holiday.

We have found the ultimate silly season inspired events for you to add to the calendar this year.

Family Friendly Festivities

There is no better way to ring in the festive season in good cheer than with Christmas carols – and there is no shortage of sing-alongs to be had on the Gold Coast.

Mayor’s Christmas Carols

The Broadwater Parklands will come alive on Sunday 2 December with the annual Mayor’s Christmas Carols, featuring some of Australia’s biggest names in entertainment. On the southern end, the Coolangatta Christmas Carols on Sunday 10 December will not only entertain with free fun for the kids, market stalls and fireworks but will see skydiving Santa arrive in true Gold Coast style! Celebrate the festive season with an evening in Pratten Park for Broadbeach’s Christmas Carols on Saturday 9 December with all your favourite Christmas classics, fun for the kids from rock climbing to jumping castles and a stellar lineup of performers taking the stage.

Broadbeach’s Christmas Carols

Pack your picnic blanket for a night on the sand for Carols on the Beach in Surfers Paradise on 23 December, one of the Gold Coast’s biggest events. The fun doesn’t end there as the beachside city transforms into a hub of roving performers, cheerful carollers and decorations in celebration of the 12 days of Christmas from 13 – 24 December for Christmas in Paradise.

Grown up Fun

Tis’ the season to be jolly… and who says kids are the only ones who can have fun at Christmas?

If your idea of Christmas festivities is frocking up trackside with a drink in hand, the Rotary Corporate Christmas Race Day on 2 December is for you! Purchase a ticket and unlock an endless supply of premium beverages, a delicious buffet lunch and a day of live racing, sweeps and auctions at the Gold Coast Turf Club.

Christmas in the Clouds at Q1 SkyPoint

Christmas is already the most enchanting time of the year and it’s about to get a whole lot more magical at Christmas in the Clouds. Celebrate in style atop the Q1 SkyPoint Observation Deck with delicious foot, toe-tapping tunes, drinks flowing and 360-degree views of the Gold Coast and beyond from level 78. Due to its sell out success in 2016, 2017 will see two events on both the 9 and 15 December.
Jingle all the way to one of the Gold Coast’s most popular events, the Centre of Christmas party on 8 December. Held at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre, gift yourself the ultimate night out with a decadent seafood, Christmas and dessert buffet before dancing the night away.
