Australia Day Celebrations

Australians work hard and play harder. You will get the best idea if ever you happen to be in town for the Australia Day and you are in Gold Coast.

What the Festival Is All About

The Australia Day (or the birthday of the country) is one of the celebrated public holidays all throughout the year, and they do have fun and for free (virtually). It is just going to be a one-day event, so you better make sure you are around. There will be no entrance fee, no car parking tickets, and you can get free shuttle services at various points.

The event is celebrated on Australia Day, January 26 at Evandale Parklands found in Bundall Road, Surfers Paradise from 10 in the morning until 5 in the afternoon.

What to Do

There are so many things in store for you. You can participate in rodeo shows, which happen in two sessions: one in the morning and another in the afternoon. Proceed to the Big Top Precinct for the biggest food court in town. More than 10 countries will join in a cooking and dining showdown. Watch the guys flex their muscles during the wood-chopping championship. Win a whopping $5,000 worth of university gift courtesy of Gold Coast Griffith University in a footrace. For only $3, your children can already have access to the Billy Lids Playground, where they can engage in face painting, pony and carnival rides, and animal petting. There will also be puppet and snake shows, as well as pig races.

Aquatic enthusiasts can form teams and join the mad sports, where they compete in various activities such as ball sports and water games. You can ride camels, check out various booths and historical displays, buy souvenirs such as arts and crafts among the stalls, take oath in the Australian Citizenship Ceremony, and enjoy the free live performances of the best entertainers in the region.

Gold Coast is also a certified tourism hub. During your free time, you can go to any of the patrolled beaches in the area, such as Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach. Adventurers can try out bungy jumping, while the kids can have fun in national and theme parks, as well as several museums.
