Deliver or host an event on the Gold Coast

Event organisers must complete a brief application for events being delivered on public land. Our team of event specialists will assist in coordinating various stakeholders within the city to ensure you can seamlessly deliver a fantastic event.

Please note:

  1. In order to secure your preferred event location and date, you are encouraged to submit your online application many months prior to the event. Processing times will vary from two weeks for a smaller event to significantly more for larger events.
  2. You must attach a site plan to your application showing the placement of infrastructure. Site maps of various parks are available for download from our Park Finder - search by park name and download the relevant map.
  3. Please see the fee structure below for free community events in parks. For other City events fees refer to the Register of fees and charges.
  4. A refundable bond may also apply to your event. Bonds vary based on the size and nature of the event, the extent of infrastructure and the types of vehicles required onsite. Standard bonds range from $1000 to $5000, while events with greater impact will incur a larger bond.
Description Fee Conditions
Application fee $100 per application
Low impact event or community activity $41 per day
Medium impact event or community activity $154 per day
High impact event or community activity $308 per day
