New Year’s Eve Gold Coast

NYE party on the Gold CoastA New Year’s Eve Gold Coast experience is absolutely right for the party person in all of us. The Gold Coast is one of the fastest growing regions covering from Southport and Surfers Paradise down to Coolangatta.  A Gold Coast New Year’s Eve could easily be mistaken as just a young persons party town and targeted at the late teenagers to early twenty somethings.  But in reality there are a lot of older people that live on the Coast and hence there are many varied NYE Gold Coast events and venues.

It is Gold Coast summer time on the 31st December, so when NYE planning, it might be a good idea to think of venues and events that include some outside component!  There is plenty of new years eve accommodation on the Gold Coast too so you should make sure you are set in that area. But just note that normally at that time of year accommodation places may have minimum stay conditions. There is normally a lot of international travelers too so book early!
