Roads to be closed as 30,000 people flock to Surfers for firework spectacular

GOLD Coasters heading into Surfers Paradise for the annual Seafire spectacular are being urged to plan their travel with roads to be closed in the entertainment precinct.

An estimated 30,000 people are expected to swoop on Surfers tonight to watch the world’s greatest pyrotechnicians battle it out in the skies above the foreshore.

While the free main 90-minute event will start at 6:30pm, entertainment will kick off from 2pm involving a preshow with displays from the Royal Australian Navy, live music, and activity on the beach.


Police are urging the public to be patient and avoid this area for non-essential travel during the evening.

Anyone attending the event is encouraged to use public transport where possible and plan for traffic delays.

The Esplanade will be closed between the Soul building roundabout and Hanlan Street from 6pm to 9pm, along with Beach Road and Hanlan Street and Surfers Paradise Boulevard southbound.
