WATCH: Celebration planned for the Gold Coast Light Rail Stage 2 Launch

Gold Coast families are invited to a celebration to help launch the Gold Coast Light Rail Stage 2 this Sunday!

The brand new Helensvale G:link station will be a hive of activity from 9am with loads of family fun on offer at the official opening event. Watch the video to find out more:


Gold Coasters will be able to enjoy live entertainment, kids activities, facepainting and 1029 Hot Tomato broadcasting live from 9am to 12noon.

There will also be food trucks offering an array of tasty delights, plus NightQuarter is hosting a Sundae Ice Cream Social festival that will definitely be worth checking out!

The G:Link will also be offering free travel between Broadbeach South station and the Helensvale station all day, so it’s a perfect time to experience the new Helensvale, Parkwood and Parkwood East stations for free.

The Free travel will only be valid on trams from 5am Sunday 17 December to last passenger service (1am Monday 18 December). Travel outside these times, or on other Translink services, will still require a valid ticket.
