It is one of a handful of events organised by Surf Life Saving Australia that is open to the public as well as surf lifesaving club members. What began as the central theme for a motion picture more than 30 years ago, now commands a place on Australia’s annual calendar of prestigious sporting events. The Coolangatta Gold consists of a 21km Short Course run on the Saturday and a 41.8km Long Course race run, extending from Coolangatta to Broadbeach on the Sunday. The multi-disciplinary course combines swimming, running, board paddling and surf skiing.

Groundwater Country Music Festival

Yes it’s back for lovers of country music – 12-14th Nov 2021

Established in 2013 as the Broadbeach Country Music Festival, the festival was rebranded as Groundwater Country Music Festival in 2018. Groundwater is a common denominator in bringing people together. It reflects Australia’s unique culture, drawing from both the Aboriginal people’s close spiritual connection with the groundwater, as well as the farming community’s reliance on groundwater for survival. Groundwater reflects the innate culture of the Australian people who use the rivers, lakes, streams, and oceans as a central part of life.

Groundwater Country Music Festival invites visitors to come and stay in our city for 3 days of rocking country music that will shake the earth and swell the spirit.
