'Celebrate Gold Coast' highlights what makes our city great.  

Whether it is our envious beach culture, the luxurious green behind the gold, or the Gold Coast’s distinctive village and cultural lifestyle, Celebrate Gold Coast showcases the unique attributes of the city.  

In 2017, Celebrate Gold Coast will turn its focus to the city’s sporting achievements in the lead up to the 2018 Commonwealth Games and will showcase why the Gold Coast is evolving as a leading sporting and active lifestyle destination.

The event will be hosted at the newly developed Gold Coast Sports and Leisure Centre at Carrara from 11am. The day will feature interactive sporting events, an array of active and healthy activities, a Ninja Warrior-style obstacle course, a line-up of food trucks and plenty of features to wear the kids out!

Before the day is over, the National Basketball League returns to the Gold Coast with an official game of the 2017-18 season – a sneak peek into what the Commonwealth Games will offer (tickets for the NBL game will be available at Ticketek).  Gold Coasters have been rewarded a discount to the NBL game – visit and use code: BULLETSGC.

Also, attend the event and go into the draw to win a car, thanks to Von Bibra Auto Village. T&Cs apply.
