What’s happening on the Gold Coast in May?

Awesome Autumn getaway

It’s hard to believe that winter is hot on our heels when the average temperature here on the Gold Coast stands at 24 degrees.

Why not escape the cooler states and have a mini break and enjoy all the things the Gold Coast has to offer? Breakers North has a selection of beautifully presented one, two, and three-bedroom apartments on the oceanfront of the iconic Surfers Paradise beach.

So, what’s happening on the Gold Coast in May?

Whilst you can still hit the beach or take a dip Breakers North’s gorgeous inground resort style heated pool, or relax and unwind in the heated spa, there are so many things to see and do on the Gold Coast, and we’ve hand picked a few for you.

Surfers Paradise Live

An award-winning four-day music festival that will get the toes of both young and old tapping. This FREE event has an impressive line-up of Australian artists. With multiple stages, you’ll be sure to find a performance that everyone in the family will like.

16th – 19th May

Blues on Broadbeach

We love live music and entertainment on the Gold Coast, and in May you’ll be spoiled for choice. The Blues Festival brings a chilled-out atmosphere to Surfers Paradise. A genre that has hauntingly beautiful tunes, and low notes, brings a sense of calm and relaxation to the usual fast-paced Gold Coast.

16th May – 19th May


We’re well known for our love of fireworks, and we send autumn off in style with SeaFire. Surfers Paradise is proud to host the international fireworks competition, and the winners are everyone in the nearby vicinity. With a mixture of thrilling pyrotechnics, and fireworks galore it’s a sight to see from all across the Gold Coast.

You can get a front-row seat from your balcony at Breakers North. Our accommodation looks over the oceanfront which is host to SeaFire.

31th May – 1st June
