7 Things You Have To Do This Winter
Well, Winter is here. Say goodbye to the long days and short nights, the warm weather and bright, sunny skies. We're lucky enough that we only really experience cold weather for a few weeks out of the whole three months (thanks Gold Coast!), but unless you plan on being a recluse for the entire season it's a good idea to seek out some Winter alternatives to keep you occupied.
Tunes, Tastes & Top Golf!
In the famous words of David Bowie... Make the best of every moment. The coast is full of new tastes, shows and venues to explore, with something for everyone popping up around every corner. We've got delicious new menus, explosive new theatre, exciting new festivals and an Australian-first Theme Park popping up this week... So what are you waiting for?
Play, Paint, Create!
Unleash your arty side... We're celebrating all things creative, and Blues on Broadbeach is back to kick it all off! Start your weekend off at the Coast's biggest free music festival (yes, I said free!), then make your way to the Home of the Arts to experience their newest Art Exhibition, showcasing all the best of the Coast. Get inspired by the sights and sounds of the Coast, then grab your girlfriends and unleash your creative talent in The Craft Parlour's latest pillow painting session. Looking for something different this weekend? The Gold Coast has it all!
Southern BBQ's, Sweatathlons and Splendour 2018!
The Easter holidays may be over, but we're still being totally spoiled with choice when it comes to things to do. We've got Southern BBQ's, we've got Sweatathlons, and we've got the official lineup for Splendour 2018! (Cue cheering). Foodies, health nuts and festival-goers unite... This week is for you guys!
Music, Masterclasses & Rooftop Markets!
If you haven't caught on yet, the Coast is in the middle of its biggest party ever. We've got sporting feats in every major sporting center, concerts running on every Beach and roving entertainment right up and down the Coast! There's dance-off's, masterclasses and rooftop markets, and enough music and entertainment to fill every corner of the Coast. We've got 99 problems, but this week boredom isn't one of them.
Art Fests, Sunday Sesh & Chevron Fest!
Between the Commonwealth Games, Festival 2018 and the many pop-up food and arts festivals, we're spoiled for options this weekend. Whether you're in Coomera, Surfers, Robina or anywhere in between, rest and relax and enjoy everything that the Coast has to offer. Watch as street artists transform Robina Town Centre or escape the games with Sanctuary Cove's chill Sunday Sesh. When it comes to food, music and fun, some things are worth travelling for.
Food, Film and Festivals Galore!
Bring your wallet and party pants - The Easter long weekend is here, and we're totally ready to party! With exclusive new rooftop bars set to open up as well as two huge festivals coming to the Coast in the upcoming weeks (film buffs and festival-goers, this one's for you!), there's plenty to do - The only question is, where will you go first?
Fantasy, Food & Festival 2018!
We're stepping out of reality, dining in Gotham City and cracking open Dragon Eggs straight out of Game of Thrones. The opening of Gotham Grill and the reveal of Dragonfly's deluxe new dessert has shrouded the Coast in mystery, with Festival 2018 topping it all off in a month of fantasy, festivals and fun. Exciting new things are coming - The only question is... Where will you go first?
Malaysian, Music & Vegan Markets!
Don't look now, it's already March! The weather may be cooling down but the Coast's social sphere is heating up, with big festivals and new foodie spaces ready to keep the cold weather away! Dance the night away at the Coast's annual Bleach Festival or eat your heart out with PappaRich's new Malaysian breakfast menu sure to make a bang down in Surfers. If you're looking for animal-friendly food, Love Child Market Place is also due to open in the next few weeks, and if the rumours are true, it's not something you want to miss.
For The Artists
This week is all about art. From Film Festivals to Photography and with a new art studio popping up right in the centre of Surfers, this week's flavour is creativity. Whether you're a film buff, a photography critic or just wanting to dabble in art, there's something going on for you - But if you're just looking for good food, Steampunk and Hennessy Lounge Bar are the places for you!
Gold Coast Nightlife
The Gold Coast is all about its nightlife, and with new bars opening up all over the coast, you’re sure to find somewhere to party! From dark and dangerous to fun and fluorescent, the Gold Coast’s variety is endless. Not into bars and clubs? Laugh your heart out at the Arts Centre or stuff yourself silly at a Street Party!
The best food and fashion that the Brickworks has to offer
The weather's getting warmer, the days are getting longer and Gold Coast festivals are back in full swing. From food and fashion to health and beauty, the Coast is alive and buzzing with a variety of festivals and events to welcome in Spring. Hosted every year in early September (this year it was on the 10th), the Brickwork's Inside Out event was certainly no exception - Showcasing the best of the Brickworks' food, fashion, health and beauty, it certainly wasn't a day to miss!
Ocean breeze, salty beats and statued streets.
Now a part of Gold Coast identity, SWELL is turning it up a notch this year for its 15th annual festival. The much-loved sculpture celebration returns with popular SWELL Sounds. Over the festival weekends – running from September 9th to September 17th – a huge line up of musicians will lure art-lovers to The Green Stage. It’s a full sensory experience.
Salt, sand, swell!
The coast is kicking off another week of weird and wonderful events, from soda-making to live skating. Pack your car with all your wackiest mates and drift down to see some local talent. They might just teach you something new. Show ‘em how to party.
