Get your calendar ready - the following events, attractions and things to do are COVID Safe and simply not to be missed!
Beyond the Sand Arts Festival
Kicking things off in March is Beyond the Sand Gold Coast, previously called Sand Safari Arts Festival.

Easter Saturday Raceday
Lay your bets and dine in style at the Carbine Club Raceday at Gold Coast Turf Club. This special Easter Saturday Raceday offers a full day of trackside horse racing action, not to be missed for eager punters on April 3.
Relax on the Beach Over Easter
Not a fan of horse racing? Spend the Easter weekend soaking up the sunshine on the beach! The Gold Coast boasts Queensland’s best beaches, with just some of these including Surfers Paradise Beach, Burleigh Heads Beach, Kurrawa Beach and Main Beach Gold Coast, to name a few.
Sunbathing, beach picnics, beachfront dining and, of course, surfing offer all the best ways to make the most of the long Easter weekend.
Family Attractions Gold Coast
There is also a host of attractions to explore on the Gold Coast, perfect for spoiling the kids this Easter or during the April school holiday!
Visit theme parks Dreamworld or Movie World, Wet’n’Wild Water Park, or Surfers Paradise attractions such as SkyPoint, Timezone, Gold Coast Wax Museum, Sling Shot Fun Park, INFINITY, King Tutts Putt Putt and Ripley’s Believe It or Not.
In Main Beach, enjoy the ultimate family day out at Sea World Gold Coast, the region’s largest marine life park.
Gold Coast Film Festival 2021
During the autumn school holiday itself, Gold Coast Film Festival returns to take over the coast with family-friendly outdoor film showings, filmmaking workshops, special panel events, movie location tours and more.
