Gold Coast Events

Australia’s Gold Coast has grown over the years to become a strong presence in Australia's events landscape. Spectacular venues, including the Gold Coast Convention Centre, and ideal weather conditions provide promoters and visitors with the perfect backdrop for events, exhibitions and festivals.

The region plays host to annual national and international events, complemented by professionally planned activities which enhance the experience for visitors and locals alike.  It is this level of professionalism that consistently attracts tens of thousands of visitors each year.

Calendar mainstays including the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, annual V8 Supercar motorsports festival, Gold Coast Marathon, Magic Millions horse racing extravaganza and Ladies Masters Golf have successfully created peak visitation times for the region.

There’s now also seasonal events with the advent of the Gold Coast’s national sporting teams in rugby league and basketball plus the entry of the city’s soccer and AFL teams into their respective elite competitions.  Metricon Stadium, home of the Gold Coast Suns, is only 2.9km (5 minutes drive) from Royal Woods.
