Australia’s holiday capital is gearing up for summer

Wow! Southeast Queensland has already had its hottest September on record and early spring is rapidly turning into early summer. Here on the Goldie, we are enjoying beautiful warm days—mostly in the mid to high twenties; the beaches are already packed and the surf lifesavers have resumed their beach patrols. Of an evening, holidaymakers are taking advantage of the balmy weather to dine al fresco at their favourite restaurants. What a contrast this is from the chilly days still being recorded in the southern part of the country!

The recent Labour Day long weekend showed the Gold Coast at its finest as visitors and locals alike enjoyed their holiday break. From the beaches to the theme parks to the restaurants—every place up and down the Coast was ready to enjoy some quality vacation time.

The Labour Day weekend really marks the start of the holiday season here—though many believe that life on the Gold Coast is one perpetual holiday. And there are plenty of events scheduled for coming weeks beginning with the Gold Coast Rugby Sevens at Skilled Park in Robina over the weekend of 12–13 October. The following weekend, the centre of action shifts to the southern part of the Gold Coast with the Coolangatta Gold Festival incorporating the famous Coolangatta Gold Ironman Race.

Then on 25–27 October, hot from Bathurst, we see the return of the V8 supercars for the Amor All Gold Coast 600. That not-to-be-missed event promises to be one non-stop party.

So if you have not yet booked your ‘great escape’ to the Coast and are looking for some holiday ideas to build around, why not come and experience one or more of these fine events? But you had better be fast as our luxury resort apartments are being snapped up very quickly. Don’t forget that when you book with HRSP you will be staying at one or other of the finest resorts in Surfers Paradise. This means you can set your own pace in terms of being ‘part of the action’. Step outside and be part of the great carnival atmosphere and when you have had enough of the excitement, relax and unwind around the pool of your luxury resort. And of course, for the ultimate peace and quiet, you can retreat into your fully-equipped apartment and watch more of the action on your widescreen TV. Naturally, every apartment we manage has Foxtel included in the rental price for your complete entertainment—whether it be movies or sports!

The October program is just the curtain-raiser to a complete summer full of entertainment, fun and events for the whole family to enjoy. So what are you waiting for? Go online today to and book the holiday of a lifetime on Australia’s fabulous Gold Coast. Remember that with HRSP ‘what you see is what you get’ and we have just made our website a whole lot easier for you to find your perfect holiday apartment.
