PLAN YOUR VISIT
April is a pretty spectacular time to come to the Gold Coast. While the southern states begin to shiver, the Gold Coast is still basking in glorious warmth – perfect to enjoy an outdoor screening or head to the beach after a cinema session.
From the iconic Surfers Paradise beach to the dining precincts of Main Beach and Broadbeach and out to the lush, green hinterland, there’s a new experience waiting for you at every turn on the Gold Coast.
Theme parks, world-renowned beaches and year-round sunshine are just a few of the reasons 10.5 million visitors flock to the Gold Coast each year.
Gold Coast Film Festival 2018 runs from Tuesday 17 – Sunday 29 April.
WHERE SHOULD I STAY
There is truly every type of accommodation option available on the Gold Coast – hostel, apartment, motel, hotel or Airbnb. You can stay beachside or in the stunning hinterland.
The hub and main venue for the Gold Coast Film Festival is HOTA, Home of the Arts, which is a five-minute drive from Surfers Paradise. Or it’s a 20 minute kayak away, if you’re brave.
We highly recommend QT Hotel Gold Coast, located in Surfers Paradise, if you are looking for a little film festival getaway. Because they are awesome, QT Gold Coast even have a special deal for film festival attendees. GCFF guests receive 20% room rates with the code GCFF18.
HOW CAN I GET AROUND
There are planes, trains and automobiles. And buses and trams. You could also consider using Uber or hiring a car.
If you are staying at QT Gold Coast – lucky you! – they can loan you bikes. It’s a 12 minute bike ride to HOTA.
