If you’re planning on heading to the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, it’s time to start getting organised. It may be a year away, but tickets and accomodation will book up quickly. And while you’re booking in, why not check out the rest of what the coast has to offer? With the Sanctuary Cove Boat Show coming up quickly, plus the gorgeous beaches and hinterland, it really is the perfect place for your next holiday.
The Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show is almost here. Held on the 25th-29th of May it’ll be open 9am-5pm daily. Whether you are already out on the water regularly or just want to dream and admire the luxury and fun, it’s the perfect day out for the whole family.
There are over 200 exhibitors on display showcasing luxury and super yachts, fishing equipment, boat builders and sellers, jetties, inflatables and every piece of marine equipment you would ever need – all in one place.
For the fishing fans there is even a Live Bream Shootout, where the winner takes all and the fish are released at the end. There is $3,000 up for grab for the team who catches the most in fish weight over the two days.
The Gold Coast Commonwealth Games are just over a year away, but tickets are already available and going fast. With the opening ceremony being held on the 4th of April and the closing ceremony on the 15th, it’s going to be an action packed 11 days. Over 6,600 International athletes are expected from 70 nations and territories so you know that tickets and accomodation options won’t last.
So, if you’re planning on attending – it’s best to start organising now. With sports like athletics, basketball, boxing, cycling, diving, gymnastics, lawn bowls, shooting, swimming and weight lifting on display – you’re bound to find something you love so you can support our incredible athletes.
While the games are held primarily on the Gold Coast, a few select events will be held in Brisbane and Townsville, so make sure you check event dates and locations carefully when selecting your accommodation and booking flights.
The Gold Coast is the perfect place for your next family getaway. Whether you want to explore the hinterland, go for a walk or a hike and explore the local rainforest, spend your day lazing on the beach, kicking a ball around and playing in the surf, or check out the range of entertainment options – the coast has it all.
If you (and the kids) want a little more action you can head to any of the local theme parks, or check out Infinity or the Escape Rooms to boggle your brains and challenge your perceptions with optical illusions and puzzles to solve. Plus, there are so many dining options your biggest problem will be deciding where to go first!
If you’re lucky enough to be on the Gold Coast this month hopefully you were lucky enough to check out the Film Festival, the Supa Nova Pop Culture Expo and the Australian Street Extravaganza. The coast is lucky to have such a variety of events, and to have the hinterland and picture perfect beaches at our doorstep.
