An AFL Adventure: Football in Paradise

If you love your footy, you know there’s nothing quite like rugging up and heading to the field to cheer your team on, beer in one hand and pie in the other. Well, actually now there is. Footy and freezing need not go hand in hand. You may be surprised to discover that the Gold Coast not only abounds in gorgeous beaches, a stunning skyline, fabulous theme parks and restaurants galore, it also has its very own AFL team, the Gold Coast Suns. This winter, the Suns will be playing host to several premier teams at their brand new home, the state of the art $144.2 million Metricon Stadium.

Between 9th July and 20th of August, Sydney, Collingwood and Adelaide, to name a few, will be heading north to take on the Suns. Why not join them? What better way to give yourself a short break than combining the thrill of watching your favourite club, with the chance to experience everything the Gold Coast has on offer. There are theme parks for the kids, shopping and restaurants and maybe even a trip to the nearby Hinterland for nature trails, wineries and lunch at one of the many small villages.

Ready to trade in your scarf for sunscreen?  Pick your weekend (games are listed below) and browse our site for a range of affordable yet luxurious resorts, apartments and holiday homes.
