The Gold Coast preparing to bring in the New Year with a bang

The Gold Coast is being promised a New Years fireworks display ‘like no other’ as final preparations are made ahead of the big night.

Surfers Paradise will host the Gold Coast’s largest display with three separate shows.

The beach will come alive at 8pm and again when the clock strikes midnight, while a special family show will be held in the riverside precinct at 10pm.


The foreshore will also host rides and other fun activities for kids between 3pm and 9pm.

This year’s theme is ‘Green and Gold’ with more than 50,000 pyrotechnic effects using five tonnes of fireworks.
