Unforgettable Gold Coast events

If Australia is a top destination for sport, then the Gold Coast is the absolute summit.

We're the sixth-largest city in Australia, with world-class sporting facilities that see us host major sporting events. An outstanding track record means we are now a permanent host for events like the Pan Pacific Masters Games, and Gold Coast Marathon. The city hosted the prestigious ITU World Triathlon Championships in 2009, attracting thousands of athletes from around the world.

We're also the training destination of choice for 38 countries, including Britain, Japan, USA and countries in Europe. These athletes training for sports such as athletics, basketball, cycling, rugby and swimming know we offer the very best climate and top quality venues.

Being a natural sporting playground, it's no surprise we've become the venue of choice for national surfing, beach volleyball, sailing and cycling events.

Our sporting calendar keeps hearts racing the whole year round and those famous beaches have inspired some of the toughest endurance tests known to sport, including the grueling Ironman and Ironwoman events.

We're the location of one of the world's most scenic marathons that attracts 25,000 people a year. Runners from all over the world arrive on our sandy shores to perform a personal best and usually succeed. Our warm, sunny climate and fresh salty air provides athletes with a natural advantage and we're hoping to share this with the world in 2018.
