Surfers Paradise SeaFire 2019 is back and this year, it is bigger and better over two consecutive days of Friday 31 May 2019 and Saturday 1 June 2019. This year, four international teams will light up the night along the shoreline of Surfers Paradise Beach in a competition for the ultimate title in fireworks.

Four International Teams

USA v South Korea v New Zealand v Philippines

Setting off world-class pyrotechnic displays from ocean barges, and choreographed to well-known soundtracks, teams from the USA, South Korea and New Zealand battle it out to compete against the 2018 winner, Team Philippines.

When is it?

The Surfers Paradise SeaFire firework displays will begin at 7pm on both days, but before that there is plenty of family entertainment along Surfers Paradise beach.
