Sand Safari Arts Festival 2020

Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast is a hive of exciting family attractions and things to do and will come alive with more excitement this February for Sand Safari Arts Festival 2020.

Starting February 14, this 17-day festival will take over the Surfers Paradise beachfront with eye-catching fairytale-themed sand sculptures; big and small in size with live art battles, sand sculpting workshops, street entertainment and more to soak up daily throughout the festival period. In a straight 25-minute drive from Palm Beach, enjoy this family-friendly Gold Coast event up until March 1. 

Supanova Gold Coast

If your kids love games and comic books, take them to Supanova Comic-Con on the Gold Coast, set to fill the Gold Coast Convention Centre with Australia’s best comic and gaming exhibitors, memorabilia displays, special guest panels, discounted merchandise and collectables plus more.

To be held over two days, Supanova Comic-Con Gold Coast has day passes and weekend passes available for March 13 and March 14. The Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre, located in Broadbeach, is a simple 20-minute drive from our Palm Beach resort.

Broadbeach Gold Coast Superhero Weekend

Gold Coast Superhero Weekend 2020 will take place alongside Supanova Comic-Con, and is the next best thing if you’re not looking to spend. This free event on the Broadbeach beachfront will draw in thousands of superhero fans arrive from all over Australia, offering impressive cosplay to see, superhero meet-and-greets and a beachfront superhero parade that’s great fun for both kids and adults alike.

GC Superhero Weekend comes annually, so make sure to catch it this year from March 13 and March 15.

Movies Under the Stars Gold Coast

Just a stone’s throw from Palm Beach Gold Coast, don’t miss two free Movies Under the Stars showings in Burleigh Heads and Elanora. Movies Under the Stars, hosted by the City of Gold Coast, is a pop-up outdoor cinema event with a rotating schedule of new animated movies – ideal for the kids and a laid-back night out to enjoy during your family holiday.

This autumn, Movies Under the Stars is showing 2019’s The Lion King, complete with kids’ rides and entertainment before the movie starts. Gather popcorn, picnic blankets and chairs and head to Elanora State School on March 14 or Burleigh Waters on April 4.

The Greatest Showman Singalong at HOTA

Also free to attend, settle down on the lawn at Home of the Arts Surfers Paradise for an outdoor showing of The Greatest Showman. This exclusive event will have the opportunity to sing along with lyrics and live performers, including dancers, songsters and a ringmaster in full spirit of the 2017 musical blockbuster.

Rewatch the movie on a huge outdoor screen, sing along to your favourite songs and enjoy a cast of entertainers performing in sync with the soundtrack. It’s a fun movie experience for the kids that will have them singing and dancing till the end – tickets are free but limited so make sure to grab them in advance for March 14.
