How are you going to observe Australia Day this year? Why not plan a trip with family and friends to the Gold Coast so that everyone can unwind and participate in the celebration?

Make reservations for a stay at Pacific Views Resort on Main Beach Parade. Guests can choose from a variety of contemporary, roomy, one- and two-bedroom apartments with ocean views at the resort. Additionally, visitors can use the first-rate on-site amenities, including a sauna, a games room, a tennis court, and an indoor and outdoor pool.

In addition to providing excellent accommodation, the resort also enables you to enjoy all the Gold Coast offers, particularly on this Australia Day. Here are three things you can do on your visit!

  1. Join the festivities at the Home of the Arts

Following the exclusive citizenship ceremony, Home of the Arts, or HOTA, will host an event. Join the festivities at the HOTA Parklands and Outdoor Stage by 4 o’clock. You can participate in various free activities with your family and enjoy the delicious food from different food trucks.

Spida, Ali, and Flan of Triple M will host the live performance, featuring a fantastic lineup of regional musicians on the HOTA Outdoor Stage. Due to space restrictions, arrive early. On Australia Day, there will be no parking fees at the HOTA precinct if you drive. In addition, stay for the fireworks finale at 7:30 pm.

  1. Enjoy Australia Day Fireworks Cruise

As previously mentioned, fireworks will mark the event’s conclusion at HOTA. Why not take a cruise if you want a better view and more? The cruise leaves from Sea World Cruises Terminal on Australia Day at 6:00 pm and returns at 9:00 pm.

You will board the contemporary, roomy Spirit of Elston or Kaiala for a 3-hour nighttime cruise that celebrates everything Australian. You can chow down on authentic Australian barbecue, including the beloved sausage sizzle, drink icy drinks, and take in live entertainment.

The vessels are cozy and have a lower deck with air conditioning. Head upstairs to the spacious, open-air viewing deck, which offers breathtaking 360-degree views of the city, if you want to catch the fireworks.

  1. Experience the Sea World Carnivale

A trip to Sea World is last on the list. After Australia Day, you should attend an iconic annual event at the world-class marine park. Beginning on January 28, the Sea World Carnivale promises to feature even better shows.

Affinity Dolphin Presentation by Night and the Aqua Light Show are presentations you should catch! Spend the evening at the theme park enjoying the attractions as well. The New Atlantis is a brand-new area of Sea World that just opened. You can enjoy brand-new, exhilarating rides like Leviathan, Trident, and Vortex, which the legends and heroes of Old Atlantis inspire!

To complete your Sea World Carnivale experience, proceed through immersive precincts. Enjoy international cuisine while watching spectacular live entertainment. Experience dancing in Rio and Mexico, and afterwards, go to Africa to celebrate and then party the New Orleans style. The dates of Sea World Carnivale are January 28, February 4, 11, 18, 24, and 25.
