Christmas is the best time of the year. The whole family gets together, you get presents, amazing food, and you have great fun. Why not consider celebrating Christmas on the Gold Coast this year? If you are still thinking about what to do on Christmas, consider the warm sunny Gold Coast where a lot of fun-filled activities can be found. Here are the top four activities that you must not miss when celebrating Christmas on the Gold Coast. Item #4 is a must do!

#1: Christmas Carols on the Beach in Surfers Paradise

Carols on the Beach concert is a traditional Gold Coast event, held on the beach in Surfers Paradise on the 22nd of December – families can enjoy festive songs together with the sea breeze. This event is a highlight on our calendar, the only carols concert in Queensland that takes place on the sand – now that’s an Australian Christmas!

Expect a spectacular line-up of local talent with energetic dance troupes, soulful choirs, plus so much more between 6:30pm to 8pm.

#2: Christmas Lunch Buffet

Ready for a Christmas feast? No more slaving in a hot kitchen, lining up at the prawn trawlers and trying to salvage a dry turkey, this year it should be all about family time together on the Gold Coast.

Book early and head over to the Star Gold Coast for an amazing 3 hour lunch buffet from 12pm to 3pm at Atrium Bar. Indulge in a selection of fresh salads, delicious seafood, mouth-watering carvery and traditional favourite desserts like Christmas Pudding and fruit mince tarts. Buffet lunch & 3 hour beverage package starts at $175 for adults.
