Chinatown Events

Chinatown 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. It is the place to celebrate the Gold Coast’s diversity through culture, design, people and food, right in the heart of the CBD.

Chinatown Street Markets

Come and enjoy an authentic Asian food experience with your family and friends at the Chinatown Street Markets. Gold Coast Chinatown – in the heart of Gold Coast CBD – will come alive with Asian culture, children’s activities and entertainment.  The markets will offer a blend of cuisines from across Asia, or why not try one of the many restaurants in Gold Coast Chinatown and enjoy the atmosphere.

Operating from 5pm to 9pm, centred on Young and Davenport Streets, Southport. Bottled water will not be sold to help reduce the amount of waste produced at the event – instead, free water refills will be available so don’t forget to bring your own bottle.
