03 Feb The Culture of the Gold Coast – It’s more than meets the eye!
When people think of the Gold Coast, they naturally visualise gorgeous summer days, stunning coastline, a subtropical beachy lifestyle and world-class theme parks. While these attributes are true and totally appealing, the Gold Coast also boasts an amazing eclectic culture, enticing holidaymakers yearning for a relaxing beachside holiday blended with the offerings of an upbeat, sophisticated city.
In less than two months the Gold Coast is set to take the world stage as the city plays host to the XXI Commonwealth Games in April. In conjunction with the Games, a stunning new cultural destination is being developed. The Gold Coast Cultural Precinct is set to be the heart of arts, culture and creative enterprise for locals and visitors alike.
As the sixth-largest city in Australia, attracting over 13 million visitors per year, you can rest assured we certainly know how to entertain, providing a variety of cultural experiences for the whole family.
The Goldie is a-buzz day and night so why not dust the sand off your feet and experience some of our popular cultural activities. The Arts Centre Gold Coast features visual and performing arts, including ballet, musicals, film and comedy.
Enjoy our plethora of culinary culture, spanning the beachside suburbs of the Gold Coast with money can’t buy views, iconic surf clubs, trendy rooftop bars, 5-star fine dining, alfresco eateries and expresso café bars. After dinner experience our vibrant nightlife or perhaps take in a show at Star Casino and Entertainment Complex, Broadbeach.
By nature we love to spend time outdoors and the ‘Goldie’ makes great use of its beaches and parklands for cultural activities including annual events such as Swell Sculpture Festival, Big Day Out, the Blues on Broadbeach Festival, Cooly Rocks 1950s-1960s nostalgia festival, Opera on the Beach, farmers markets, food & wine festivals to name a few.
As you can see the Gold Coast has all the offerings for a beautiful holiday, and what better way to enjoy it than to live like a local and fully immerse yourself in its unique beachside culture.
