Cheap Fakes

Be part of the celebrations that unite our nation at the Gold Coast Australia Day event at Broadwater Parklands.

Spend the day soaking up the sun then head to the Broadwater Parklands from 4pm and fill up from the all-nations food truck feast.

The event will feature a bunch of local music talent including sets from The Twine, Sunset City and Cheap Fakes, and the kids are sure to enjoy the JJ Richards Adventure Zone.

This free event kicks off at 4pm and concludes at 8pm with a spectacular fireworks display, set to rival New Year's Eve. The colourful presentation will feature new live performance components not seen before at this event. Crowds will be wowed by fly boards, jet skis and jetpacks, while the fantastic fireworks light up across the Broadwater.

Pack your picnic rug and gather your family and friends for a wonderful afternoon of food, fun and spectacular fireworks.
