Where can I find birthday party venues on the Gold Coast?

The Gold Coast has many spectacular beaches and picturesque hinterland regions. It attracts tens of thousands of tourists every year to its glorious weather and crystal blue waters.

Because it's one of the fastest-growing tourist destinations in the world, there are virtually endless amounts of high-end bars, clubs and party-ready venues located throughout the Gold Coast. These are some of the most popular spots for a bangin' 21st birthday bash:

Surfers Paradise

In the heart of Surfers Paradise, you'll find heaps of birthday venues with an atmosphere and style suited to your celebration. The Gold Coast is renowned for its nightlife, and this area, in particular, is the main hub for partygoers. Here you'll find bars, clubs and pubs that really know how to throw a good party. There are also cafes and restaurants in Surfers Paradise where you can gather your friends before hitting a club or going out on the town! The Island Gold Coast, for example, has a range of designer spaces to suit events of all kinds.


Broadbeach is another popular area for hosting a birthday party. It's known for being quieter than Surfers Paradise, but don't let this fool you — there are still plenty of great bars and clubs to check out! Although it's not as close to the beach as some other parts of the Gold Coast, Broadbeach boasts an eclectic mix of cafes, restaurants and bars in a more relaxed atmosphere.

Mermaid Beach

If you're looking for somewhere to hang out with your friends in more natural and laidback surroundings, then Mermaid Beach is the place to be. Situated between Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach, this beachside suburb hosts many bars and restaurants that are perfect party locations. You'll also find some pretty good party spots along the beach itself!


If you want to get out of the hustle and bustle of the busy Surfers Paradise area, Nerang is a great alternative. This suburb hosts plenty of boutique restaurants and small bars that are perfect for private birthday parties. You can also find accommodation options in close proximity to many of these venues and many birthdays are celebrated in the privacy of people's accommodation.

Burleigh Heads

Burleigh Heads is a lovely part of the Gold Coast that has great accommodation options and some beautiful scenery. As well as offering privacy and seclusion, Burleigh also boasts a range of different bars and restaurants to choose from for your big birthday bash.

What kind of birthday party venue is best for my 21st on the Gold Coast?

Choosing a venue for your 21st birthday party can be tricky. You want it to be memorable and feel truly special, but you don't want to break the bank either. These are some of the most common birthday party venue types to check out on the Gold Coast:


Bars and nightclubs offer a great atmosphere for your 21st birthday celebration on the Gold Coast. They're also usually cheaper, easier to set up and much less hassle than organising catering at another venue. It's worth looking at renting a private section of the venue if you want it exclusively for your party so that you and your guests can have it all to yourselves.

Private hotel suites

This is a great option if you're after something a little more luxurious than your average pub or bar. A lot of hotels on the Gold Coast have suites available for hire that are perfect for birthday parties, particularly if it's a large group of people.

Boutique bars and restaurants

If you're after a classier affair, boutique bars or restaurants can be good choices too – especially if they offer a private space to eat in that's away from all the other diners. You want somewhere with a nice ambience where everyone can feel comfortable and relaxed.

Theme parks

Theme parks are a great option for celebrating your 21st birthday on the Gold Coast. They offer plenty of space and you get to enjoy all the rides in between partying with your friends.

Waterfront function venues

Whether you want to celebrate your 21st birthday in style or you're planning a laidback party, waterfront function venues are perfect for a Gold Coast birthday bash. You get awesome views of the ocean and they usually offer exclusive access and in-house catering packages. Some of these venues also have luxury boats that can take you to and from the venue. This is a great way to get everyone excited about your 21st birthday celebration.

Popular 21st birthday party themes and ideas

The Gold Coast is a unique location to host your 21st birthday party as you can organise it around almost any theme. You could plan an all-inclusive bring-your-own BBQ at the beach, or make use of one of the many themed venues in Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach. Here are a few more ideas for your 21st birthday on the Gold Coast:

Chill out beach party

What better way to celebrate turning 21 than by partying with your best friends on the beach? You could organise this kind of party around a family-friendly beach bar that offers great food and an awesome atmosphere.
