Gold Coast 600 – Opera in the park – Coolangatta Night Life



The Australian motorsport community is raring and ready to go for the annual Vodafone Gold Coast 600 supercar event. The world’s best drivers will battle a 2.96km circuit around the Broadwater precinct as the crowd battles to roar over the sound of the engines.

This year will mark the first inclusion of the Super Utes segment, replacing the traditional V8 Utes with dual-cab, turbo diesel machines including Holden Colorado, Toyota Hilux, Ford Ranger, Mitsibushi Triton, Mazda BT-50 and Isuzu D-Max contenders.

Meanwhile, the Speed Energy Stadium Super Trucks, which can race on virtually any surface, will bring the high-octane sport of off-road racing to the main stage.

The Porsche Wilson Security Carrera Cup Australia will also be a major drawcard, with the introduction of the new Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car, which is faster, safer and more affordable than its predecessors.

Boasting a 1.2 litre, 125bhp, twin-cam, 16 valve engine that revs to 11500rpm, the Aussie Racing Cars ll are set to prove that good things come in small packages, with speeds in excess of 200kph.

Don’t miss The ShowTime Freestyle Moto X, featuring Matt Mingay’s notorious Hot Wheels Stunt Team, for an adrenaline-filled display of dangerous motorbike stunts and aerial antics.

Stock up on your favourite team merchandise, enjoy a drink at the Coopers Roll Bar and grab a bite to eat. Book your stay at Kirra Beach Apartments NOW to join the action! Visit for more information on this exciting event.



It’s that time of year again… time to dig out your dancing shoes and spare change (no, seriously) for a trip down to Winders Park in Currumbin for the annual Buskers By The Creek festival.

Enjoy the sounds of samba, Afro-Brazilian drums, award winning musicians, talented teens and swing – there’s something for music lovers of every genre!. The

Byron Bay Bluesfest Busking Champions will also make an appearance and you might even discover the next ‘big thing’ as a profusion of emerging singer/songwriters vie to fill their violin cases.

Fight the ennui as you revel in the work of eclectic performance artists and painters, or delight in the food masterpieces on offer from top local chefs and brewmasters.

Parking is available at Currumbin Primary School for only $5 and Gold Coast Cabs will be on constant rotation, kindly offering $2 fares (from specific locations).

This is a family-friendly event and Karma Kids will provide a variety of workshops, crafts, circus activities and music for the kids. Due to popular demand, a child minding service will also be available. For further information or to book, phone Skye on 0407 400 518.
