If a coastal getaway to soak up some sunshine and recharge your batteries sounds like just the thing, and you love to celebrate Christmas in a big way, then you’re going to love every second of your Gold Coast stay. There are so many Christmas events on that getting into the holiday spirit will be a complete joy!
Surfers Paradise Christmas
The streets of Surfers will light up over the Christmas season. From the 20th to the 24th of December you can step into a Christmas wonderland with roving carolers, the streets decorated for the festivities, and Santa in his beach bungalow in Cavill Mall! Get a family photo, play in the life-sized snow globe, and find the perfect gifts for loved ones.
The culmination of the celebrations is, of course, the Surfers Paradise Carols on the Beach. With all your favourite Christmas music, dance, performances, and fireworks it’s hard to look past this magical evening under the Summer stars. Carols on the beach with sand between your toes? Now that’s an Aussie Christmas celebration to remember. Find out more here.
Christmas Day at The Star Gold Coast
While many of us will happily embrace the Gold Coast tradition of spending Christmas Day at the beach if you’re looking for something a little more special you might want to check out what’s on at The Star Gold Coast on the big day. There are a number of Christmas Day dining packages available, including the ever-popular Harvest Buffet Christmas lunch - a feast paired with a three-hour drinks package and entertainment.
In the lead up to Christmas, you might want to kickstart getting into the holiday spirit with the Not So Silent Night Christmas Ball. Dinner, drinks, and live entertainment from Stafford Brothers and Lisa Hunt, all in the themed ballroom! You can find out more about what’s on at The Star here.
White Christmas at Movie World
From the 6th to the 22nd of December you can enjoy a white Christmas despite the tropical temperatures when you visit Warner Bros. Movie World. The kids will be thrilled walking down Main Street as they soak up the views of fairy lights, see ‘snowflake’ bubbles falling from the sky, and meet their favourite Christmas characters.
The Christmas Parade is a sight to behold, with a convoy of floats carrying Warner Bros. favourites as well as Santa. We dare you to resist dancing and singing along! You’ll also love Christmas Storytime with Mrs Claus, and all the best Movie World rides to enjoy!
However you choose to celebrate this year, you’ll love coming home to your self-contained holiday apartment in Surfers Paradise after a big day. Check our rates and availability here.
