Christmas in Surfers Paradise
Presented by G:Link - Gold Coast light rail
Christmas in Surfers Paradise packs a whole of lot of family fun into nine days of seasonal celebration.
Centre pieced by the Surfers Paradise Carols on the Beach concert, this year's festivities mix cherished tradition with a summer fizz to perfectly capture the best of a coastal Christmas.
From Wednesday to Sunday over the two weeks leading up to Christmas, the precinct will undergo a head-to-toe makeover to delight visitors young and old.
In the iconic Cavill Mall, Santa Claus himself will be setup in his surf boat and Santa's Beach Shack, taking Christmas wishes from boys and girls with the assistance of Santa's helpers. Mums and Dads are encouraged to bring their own camera and snap a free family photo with Santa. Overhead a dazzling Christmas lights display will be hung, reminiscent of a shimmering halo.
And on Monday 23 December, see the inaugural Christmas Movies on the Beach for the whole family to enjoy. This double feature presents Mickey's A Christmas Carol alongside major hit, The Polar Express.
