Australia Day on the Gold Coast

Australia Day Celebrations 2019

Be part of the festivities at the Gold Coast’s 2019 Australia Day Celebrations on 26 January at Broadwater Parklands, Southport.

Headlined by Mason Rack Band, the winners of the Gold Coast Music Award’s 2018 Best Live Act, and supported by an impressive line-up of local talent.

This FREE event kicks off at 4pm and concludes at 8pm with a spectacular fireworks display set to rival New Year’s Eve events.

With fun for the whole family, the night will also boast delicious food vendors and the JJ Richards ‘Aussie Activities Zone’. Relive the fun of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games and give beach volleyball a try down by the Broadwater. The little athletes of the family will love the ‘Mini-Commonwealth-Games’.

Support our drought-stricken farmers - don’t forget to head to the Rural Aid Australia stand and donate a gold coin or purchase merchandise.

So pack your picnic rug and gather your family and friends for a wonderful afternoon of food, fun and fireworks; the only place to be on Australia Day is the Broadwater Parklands.

Register your interest today on the Australia Day Celebrations Facebook event page and tag your friends!
