The Gold Coast Show

The Gold Coast is one of the busiest regions you will ever be in Australia. However, during the Gold Coast Show everyone takes the time to head to the public arena and enjoy the activities that the festival can offer.

What the Festival Is All About

The festival is one of the best ways to celebrate the Gold Coast. It is usually held on the last week of August. This 2010, it will be from August 27 to August 29. The first day is actually a public holiday in the region. Gates will be open from 9 in the morning until 9 in the evening, except on Sunday when it closes early at 6:30 p.m. It will be held at Parklands Showgrounds.

Tickets can be quite hefty, but most of the activities are already covered with the admission fees. Pre-school children are free while adults pay $20. Families have to shell out $45. Parking costs $7.

What to Do

The Gold Coast Show happens in more than 200 sites, both indoors and outdoors. You can hop from one exhibit to another and get to know more about the businesses and tourism in the area.

You can head to the animal pavilion and catch the poultry competition, as well as dog show. Children are in for a treat when they watch the circus acts, which come for free. There will also be horse show-jumping, goat competitions, rides, roving entertainment, lots of music and food, and wood-chopping contests. You can also catch the search for Ms. Gold Coast Showgirl and Teen. Exhibits are also abundant, from plants to vintage cars.

Gold Coast is huge, and despite the towering skyscrapers, it offers plenty of attractions to tourists. There is whale watching, balloon riding, Aquaduck, bungy-jump, museums, art galleries, national parks, as well as yacht charters.
