Gold Coast CBD – Southport

At the heart of the Gold Coast is the emergence of a CBD that is revitalised, dynamic and vibrant; a CBD that will position the Gold Coast as a globally competitive lifestyle, investment and business destination.

What's On

The Gold Coast CBD has a diverse and rapidly growing annual calendar of events.  Chinatown will offer something different on the first Saturday of every month when its streets come alive with a range of exciting events such as free films, popup bars, multicultural celebrations and the much loved Chinatown Street Markets. It also holds one-off cultural celebrations.

Broadwater Parklands hosts world class sporting events including the Gold Coast Airport Marathon and Queensland Triathlon Series as well as a range of other family, cultural and sporting events.

Chinatown

Gold Coast Chinatown is an unique and modern precinct that provides a place for the Gold Coast to celebrate its diversity through culture, design, people and food.  The precinct is continuously evolving with new Asian-inspired businesses, restaurants, cultural embellishments, and offers something different on the first Saturday of every month when its streets come alive with a range of exciting events such as free films, popup bars, multicultural celebrations and the much loved Chinatown Street Markets.

Each February, Chinatown hosts the Gold Coast’s largest Lunar New Year Celebrations to mark the special occasion.
