The Gold Coast 600: Insider Tips On The Best Accommodation, Nightlife, & Experiences
V8 supercars are set to take on the electrifying Surfers Paradise street circuit in an awesome display of engine power and precision driving. This exceptionally challenging 2.98km racing circuit features no less than 15 tight turns, narrow straights and concrete walls that are quite frankly too close for comfort. All this makes for heart thumping Gold Coast 600 race. Ensure you have the best Gold Coast experience and check out our top accommodation and nightlife options below.
Gold Coast Nightlife
After dark the fun really starts. Motorsports are notorious for their off track partying ways and the Surfers Paradise nightlife guarantees glamorous fun in spades. Aside from the official event entertainment, expect live bands, fireworks and the like. Here’s our top picks for your after-dark entertainment.
Dine at Misono Japanese Steakhouse. Australia’s largest teppanyaki restaurant is right here on the Gold Coast. Located at the Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa, close to the supercar 600 circuit. Diners will be thrilled by its innovative, authentic Japanese cuisine and fun atmosphere.
Party at Cavill Avenue. Right in the heart of surfers, this street is home to a slew of trendy bars, pumping nightclubs, sports bars and open air beer gardens. A high energy scene for those who want to shift gears into full tilt party mode.
Play at The Star (formerly known as Jupiter’s Casino). A glitzy entertainment precinct featuring quality restaurants, low key lounge bars and an onsite casino open 24-7.

Q1 Resort and Spa – an indulgent luxury escape. Perfect for couples.
