Surf club dining North Burleigh – May June Burleigh Special Accommodation

There is still time to book an Easter holiday on the Gold Coast. Why not spend the holiday lazing by the beach, getting your adrenaline fix at a local theme park, explore the hinterland or just relax and eat your way through the local restaurants these the local holidays.

Gemini Court Easter EggsDid you know that Easter Eggs come from early traditions where chicken eggs (or even ostrich eggs) were painted? We have since grown accustomed to the foil wrapped chocolate eggs.

The egg has always been a symbol of fertility and rebirth, and in Christianity is it used to symbolise the empty tomb from Jesus’ rebirth.  There is also a legend that Mary Magdalene was making eggs when she went to visit the tomb, and those eggs turned bright red when she saw that Jesus had risen – which is why they now come in such a variety of colours when you’re at the supermarket.

Gold Coast SUNS v St Kilda, Metricon Stadium – The Kokoda Challenge – Sydney Comedy Festival Showcase

Ah, the gorgeous Gold Coast! From happening hipster hangouts to sandy golden beaches and a distinctly chilled coastal Queensland vibe, it’s the holiday haven you’ve been waiting for!

Case in point: Burleigh Heads – home to Gemini Court Holiday Apartments – a vibrant beachside mecca, boasting some of the best surf in Australia, a friendly local atmosphere, and pristine views to boot.

The best views on the coast - Gemini Court Holiday ApartmentsPlus, this July there’s a bunch of interesting events happening within a short drive of our stellar location, including the inspirational Kokoda Challenge and acclaimed Sydney Comedy Festival Showcase. You’ll also have the opportunity to catch an AFL match at Metricon Stadium, as our hometown heroes, Gold Coast SUNS, take on St Kilda on July 2.

Firstly, starting a short drive up the road from Burleigh Heads at Mudgeeraba, The Kokoda Challenge will storm into the city on July 16, from 7am.  Hailed as Australia’s toughest team endurance event, it measures in at more than 96km and is often recognised as Australia’s toughest team endurance event. The challenge is a gruelling, cross country team hike over 96km – but with a 39 hour time limit.

Organiser say these numbers hold special significance in Kokoda history, as 96km is the exact length of the Kokoda Track in PNG and the time limit of 39 hours stands in honour of the 39th Militia, who were the first Australian force to engage with the Japanese in Papua New Guinea in World War Two.

Each team of four participants (with a Support Crew) trek the course along fire trails, crossing 12 creeks and climbing summits of 5000m of vertical elevation. The goal is to finish as a complete team of four in honour of the spirit forged on the Kokoda Track in 1942: courage, endurance, mateship and sacrifice.The Kokoda Challenge

Money raised by the challenge goes towards The Kokoda Challenge Youth Program, which helps disenfranchised teenagers improve their lot in life, while giving back to their communities.

To register for the life-changing event, visit

Meanwhile, if you’re staying locally later in the month, the Sydney Comedy Festival Showcase will be performing at Paradise Showroom, at The Arts Centre Gold Coast on July 31.

This will be the fourth year in a row the festival will be bringing the ‘crème de la crème’ of the Festival right to the Gold Coast, and it’s looking like the most exciting showing yet.Comedy Festival Showcase at The Arts Centre Gold Coast

Organisers say the Comedy Festival Showcase will boast a line-up of the best local and international comics, while also showcasing some of the freshest emerging talents. The 2015 Showcase Tour put smiles on the faces of 20,000 people in more than 45 regional and metro centres over a huge five month tour, performing many sold out shows.

To book your tickets, ranging from $32 to $35, visit

Early in July, on the 2nd, local AFL fans will take some time out to enjoy a match-up between Gold Coast SUNS and St Kilda. Top tip: You should too, footy fan or not.

Even if you’ve only got a passing interest in the sport, our great local facilities make spectating a pretty pleasurable experience. The buzzing atmosphere alone is enough to encourage a visit.

Fan reviews for Metricon Stadium stand at about 4/5 on Ticketmaster, indicating a viewing experience well above average, and a perfect spot to experience your first taste of the Australian game.
