With a wide selection of luxury hotels, exciting amusement parks, gorgeous beachfront venues and an abundance of dining options, the Gold Coast is a fantastic place to hold your 40th birthday party. No matter what kind of party vibe you're going for, how many people you want to celebrate with or what you want to do on your birthday, there's a venue here that will make your 40th birthday bash an unforgettable one.

These Gold Coast neighbourhoods are the perfect starting point if you're on the hunt for somewhere spectacular and memorable.

Surfers Paradise

The most popular area for holding 40th birthday parties on the Gold Coast is Surfers Paradise, which has a wide selection of hotels and restaurants in addition to a number of different types of nightlife venues. The suburb also boasts an array of famous sites such as the beachfront shopping centre Cavill Avenue as well as its internationally recognised surf break, Snapper Rocks, which are both great spots for photos.

Surfers also has many high-quality hotels with on-site spas, shopping malls and various restaurants to cater for different tastes. It's also just across the road from Southport, which is another top 40th birthday party location.


Gold Coast's other major city neighbourhood, Southport, also has ample choice when it comes to finding the right venue, with plenty of hotels and restaurants located on its high streets and nearby waterfront areas. Southport also has a number of sports clubs and recreation facilities that are perfect for hosting your 40th birthday party, including sporting ovals, bowling centres and various recreation centres.


The most famous spot on the Gold Coast is always going to be busy and vibrant, so it's perfect for a big party! Go bar hopping along Surf Parade or choose from any number of restaurants and cafés that are located on the beachfront. If you're looking to take advantage of the area's famous golden sands, then head a little further north to one of the three beautiful beaches — Brinsmead, Labrador and Main Beach — which stretch for hundreds of kilometres in both directions.


This small village is popular with tourists who want their own piece of Gold Coast paradise, and it's easy to see why! With luxurious accommodation dotted along its pristine coastline, enjoy fine dining at any number of upscale establishments or just relax at your hotel room as you plan your evening celebrations. The main attraction here is obviously the beach (and it really is breathtaking), but there is also an abundance of great dining options in this village, so you can have your cake and eat it too!


This idyllic suburb is close to Surfers Paradise and Southport, so it's an alternative choice when planning your big bash. Bundall has a selection of hotels with pools and spas as well as tranquil bushland areas that are perfect for relaxing or entertaining your friends. There aren't many restaurants here, but what this neighbourhood lacks in dining options it makes up for in guesthouses and budget accommodation, so you don't have to spend a fortune on your big party.

What types of 40th birthday party venues are there on the Gold Coast?

There's no shortage of places to host your big day on the Gold Coast, so finding one should hardly be a problem. However, knowing which kinds of venues are available will make the search much easier. Here's a run-down of some types of 40th birthday party venues you can hold your event in:  


If your vision of a 40th birthday soiree is more formal, a hotel ballroom could be the perfect venue for you. When it comes to hosting your event in this type of 40th birthday party venue, things tend to be more organised and structured — making it easier to run your celebration smoothly. Plus, because many hotels have these types of facilities on-site, there's no need to hire additional space.

Hotels are a great choice for your 40th birthday party venue if you want to organise something in-depth, which means that they can be particularly good for the decade parties. However, this type of venue is not ideal if you're looking for something small and more intimate. The rooms tend to be large so it's important to discuss room numbers with your potential venue beforehand.

Beachfront venues

Beachfront venues are a great option if you love the outdoors and want your 40th birthday party to take place among this beautiful scenery. One of the main advantages is that they're often hired by the whole day, meaning that nothing has to be hurried, which can sometimes be difficult at hotels and restaurants. 

Party yachts  

Event facilities such as party yachts will differ depending on where you sail (beaches, coves, islands etc), but overall they tend to offer large spaces with lots of natural light and stunning views — perfect for your celebration!

Cafés and restaurants

These venues are perfect for smaller parties where you want something simple but elegant. Cafés usually offer limited menus (and some won't be licensed) so it's important that you clarify what is and isn't possible beforehand.

If you're keen to organise something beyond a simple meal, restaurants may be more suitable for your 40th birthday party. This type of venue tends to offer slightly more flexibility regarding food and drink options as well as the capacity of rooms (depending on how many people you expect).

Private Dining Rooms

In most restaurants, the party of four is considered to be a private dinner. Private dining rooms are perfect when it's just you and one other person or couple who want to celebrate together. They're also great if there's a special occasion in the family that needs celebrating, such as an engagement or birthday. The best thing about these types of 40th birthday party venues is that they offer intimacy without sacrificing any class – which means no matter what type of food or drink you order, it'll taste amazing!  In this article, we will talk about some pros and cons associated with private dining rooms so that you know what to

Bars and pubs

If you're after a laidback celebration, consider hosting your 40th birthday party in a bar or pub. The atmosphere is very relaxed, so you can count on plenty of fun and laughter for the night! Plus, some pubs now cater for bigger groups by providing function rooms for an air of exclusivity and privacy.

One of the huge advantages of hiring this type of venue is that it's incredibly affordable compared to other types of venue hire. For example, whilst hotel bars often charge high prices for alcohol, usually there are cheaper options such as BYO wine and beer at pubs and bars.
