It’s baaaaaack! The Gold Coast Show returns to the Broadwater Parklands for yet another year – it’s 113th, to be precise – bringing truckloads of free family fun to the iconic seaside location.

Celebrating over a decade of memories made, the show will take over Southport from August 30 until September 1, and is yet again totally free to attend.

Witness the Broadwater Parklands come alive from the northern end all the way down to the Sundale Bridge, with everything from a spectacular sideshow alley to baby animal farms included in the footprint. Catch show favourites like the woodchopping, arts and crafts, live music and traditional food, as well as some alternative attractions like beach camel rides and a not-to-be-missed circus.

There will also be incredible roving dinosaurs (because why wouldn’t there be?) and, of course, a gigantic Showbag Pavilion.

Adding to the show fun is a full equestrian program, which will take place on the parkland’s northern lawn, and a must-see dog show. And of course, each day will finish with a bang with a breathtaking fireworks display illuminating the city by night.

There is more to the 2019 Gold Coast Show than ever before – this year is not to be missed, so be sure to come along and get in on the action before it wraps up for another year.
