Gold Coast 30th Birthday Party Venue Hire Guide

30th birthdays are the start of a new era and should be celebrated in grand style! If you're considering a 30th birthday bash on the Gold Coast, you're well on your way to a simply spectacular celebration.

Where can I celebrate my 30th birthday party on the Gold Coast?

The Gold Coast is famous for its amazing beaches and stunning warm weather, which makes it the perfect location to celebrate a 30th birthday party. The beauty of parties thrown by this age group is that you can choose the activities that suit your tastes, so there's really no limit. Whether you plan on celebrating with an intimate dinner or heading out to a trendy club with your mates, your options are endless. If you're planning a 30th birthday party in this beautiful region, here are some of the top locations for party venues:

Mermaid Beach

Mermaid Beach is known for its pristine white sand and crystal clear water which make it one of the most popular beaches in Australia. You can host your party on a beachfront balcony or at beachside restaurants if you'd prefer an air-conditioned setting for your party.

Burleigh Heads

If you love the beautiful backdrop of water, sand and cliffs that Burleigh Heads offers, then this is a great location to consider. The beach area will allow you to party with your friends at night and enjoy the day on the glorious beaches during the day.

Surfers Paradise

If you're having a 30th birthday party on the Gold Coast, Surfers Paradise should be at the top of your list. There are heaps of restaurants and bars here that offer views of the city or beach. You can also book a hotel function room or private dining room to make it easier to host a larger group without worrying about clean up or transportation issues.

Main Beach

Main Beach is another one of those stunning Gold Coast locations that offer both a beach and city setting. You can host your party at a number of different restaurants or private function spaces with views of the water.


Broadbeach is one of the most popular nightlife destinations on the Gold Coast, so it's perfect for celebrating a 30th birthday. There are plenty of bars and clubs to keep you entertained all night long, as well as some great restaurants for dinner.

Best types of 30th birthday party venues on the Gold Coast

There are a number of Gold Coast venue types that are perfect for 30th birthday party celebrations. Here are our favourites:


If you want to throw a cocktail or dinner party and would like guests to be able to eat at tables with chairs, then there are a number of options from large function rooms available at hotels to smaller restaurants. You will need to check though as some of the venues will only offer a set menu as part of their deal, while others may be more flexible.


If you're looking for something special to make your party stand out, then a beach barbecue would be perfect. You can easily get in touch with local caterers who will provide everything you need and take care of the entertainment also.


Hire a boat and have your party on the water. The harbour can get very busy at times, so if you want to be able to escape other people, this is the perfect way to do it. A cruise or dinner party could be great fun, especially if you can arrange something themed, like a Mexican fiesta or Italian feast.

Theme parks

Theme parks can be great for celebrating a 30th birthday as well. You're already in the perfect place to throw a party, and there's lots of fun to be had at places like Warner Brother's Movie World, Dreamworld and Wet'n'Wild.

Gold Coast hotels

There are some amazing hotels available on the Gold Coast that would make fabulous locations for your 30th birthday party. If you book an event on a rooftop, then you'll also have stunning views of the Gold Coast skyline as a backdrop to your birthday photos.

If you're looking for live music and a dance floor, then choose a nightclub or bar with a great sound system, lights and staging.

Consider your budget

Your budget will play a big part in deciding which venue to choose. There are plenty of affordable Gold Coast birthday party venues, so don't feel like you have to spend a fortune to have a great time.

Personalize your menu

Don't be afraid to ask for what you want when it comes to your birthday cake, food and drinks. Many restaurants and bars will be happy to accommodate your requests, so don't be afraid to ask. You'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to catering options. 

Hire a DJ or choose your own music

If you're opting for a nightclub or live band, then make sure to let the venue know what kind of music you'd like to hear. DJs can play any style of music, but most have a speciality and may be better suited to rock, hip hop or dance beats.

Avoid the crowds with a private function room

Many venues will offer you exclusive use of certain areas or an entire venue for your 30th birthday party. This is great if you'd like to avoid distractions and would rather keep your guests focused on enjoying themselves.
