  1. Hi Chris, Refer to our post, but in previous years the main event has been held on The Great Lawn at Broadwater Parklands, Southport between 4pm-8pm. There has been over 20 food trucks and BBQ’s as well as plenty of activities for the kids and local musicians playing at the main stage. To finish off the day, there is typically a fireworks display at around 8pm. Other highlights have included an Aussie Sporting Zone with activities from the Gold Coast Suns, the Gold Coast Titans and Queensland Cricket. There will also be heaps of other activities spread all over the Gold Coast, including RSL lunches, beach cricket and live music. Best regards, Jess
