Why should I celebrate my birthday party on the Gold Coast?

One of the most popular regions in Australia, the Gold Coast is an incredible place to hold your birthday party. There are many different venues and places in this region that offer birthday party venue packages for groups of all sizes. Here are some of the great reasons why you should choose The Gold Coast as your next birthday destination:

  • The beaches are ideal for playing, fishing, surfing and relaxing in the sun.
  • There is so much to do for a kid's party, from theme parks like Dreamworld and Warner Brothers Movie World, iconic shopping centres such as Pacific Fair Shopping Centre or just spending time with family at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary or playing mini golf at Putt Putt Mermaid Beach.
  • There are many different types of adult party venues that you can choose from, the region is well known for its nightlife that attracts 24.5 million tourists every year.
  • The weather never gets too cold or hot, making it an all year round destination!

Best venue types for a Gold Coast birthday party?

With so many things to do and places to go on the Gold Coast, there's a fun birthday party venue around almost every corner. With everything from elegant restaurants to theme parks on offer, there's no better way of spending your birthday than at one of the region's amazing party venues. There are really many birthday party venues on the Gold Coast. Here are some of the best venue types for both adults and kids parties on the Gold Coast:


Picture yourself at an all-inclusive beach resort where you can stay in luxury accommodation whilst enjoying your special event. This will ensure that you relax, yet still enjoy the atmosphere without having to worry about anything else but what you're going to wear! Relax in the resort's pool deck and spa facilities or enjoy the view from your balcony. You want the best, so book ahead and ensure that you have the time of your life with friends and family or on your own if that is how you like it. Stress-free planning means that you get to concentrate on the most important thing — celebrating in style!

Theme parks

Most of the big-name theme parks, such as Dreamworld and Wet'n'Wild, have venues where you can host a birthday party or event, some more cost-effective than others. It's recommended to book well in advance to get the best deals but even at the last minute, you should find there is plenty available. The thing to remember is not all places are suitable for every age group, so be sure to think about your child's comfort zone when selecting a kids party venue.


If you love eating out, an elegant restaurant will make your birthday party or event a fantastic experience. From busting-at-the-seams buffets for kids to all kinds of themed dinners for adults, food is the name of the game when it comes to birthday venues. Corporate offers are often available so contact restaurants in advance to see what party packages are available and what terms and conditions apply.


Yes, that's right! A local nightclub can be hired out as the perfect place to organise a bash for many people without breaking any bank accounts. Again, this venue type will appeal more strongly to adults than children but there's no denying the popular choice among under 21s on the Gold Coast (and beyond). 

Working with professionals who know how to do birthday parties and the like is always recommended as well. It's surprising how much you can get for a relatively low price when you book one of these clubs out, from the entrance to food and drinks after the party has wrapped up.

If you have a smaller budget then you may be able to organise something on the cheap, just don't forget to think about add-ons like table hire and such.

Local parks 

What better place to host your next birthday party than in one of the local parks. From rainforest surrounds to entertainment for family fun, there is so much choice here. You will need permission from the council or whoever manages the area but once that is confirmed, then all the hard work will be done for you!

What to consider when looking for birthday party venues on the Gold Coast

This guide will tell you what questions to ask yourself when looking for the best venue for an adult or kid's party on the Gold Coast. If you are considering taking your guests partying in this location then here's how you can find great birthday party packages:

#1 - Decide where you'd like to celebrate

There are always numerous aspects of hosting a successful birthday party, but one of the most crucial elements will be choosing the right venue. There are various points to bear in mind when looking for an appropriate place to hold your get-together, and there are several important factors that should be factored into the decision making process; from size requirements to entertainment options available.

When choosing the place in which to hold your celebration, there are numerous factors that should be taken into account: Firstly consider the most appropriate location i.e. what is suitable for both yourself and your guests? For example, do they want something close to home or work? Do they want something quiet or lively? Do you want to celebrate in Gold Coast's Main Beach or Surfer's Paradise? There are all kinds of birthday party venues around today so you should be able to find something that will suit everyone.

There is a multitude of options available for both adult's and children's parties on the Gold Coast; from restaurants with private rooms to nightclubs and much more, there is always going to be somewhere suitable for any celebration.

#2 - Do you need special catering services?

When you're planning a birthday party, the catering is probably one of the most important aspects as this will primarily dictate just how much enjoyment your guests are going to have. When looking at venues in the area, it's good to have an accurate idea of what kind of food and drink you're going to want to be served during your celebration so that you can ensure that they'll be able to provide it for you.

In addition, if any special dietary requests are required (such as vegetarian or gluten-free), then make sure that these details are passed on directly to your chosen venue in advance so that they can ensure all needs are met and there is no confusion or unnecessary complications involved when it comes time for the event itself.

#3 - Get in early for discount deals

You can get some great birthday packages if you book things early enough. If you wait until too late though, then there might not be any available venues or catering services left for your liking. This is especially true around Christmas time and long weekends as most people will reserve their package choice beforehand so they can go away on holiday without worrying about anything else.

#4 - Think over your guest list before booking anything

Figuring out how many guests are going to be attending your party is very important when it comes to deciding where you should host it at. The venue can become too small for your needs if you haven't counted correctly so make sure that you know how many people you will have coming along before booking anything at all. This will save you from having to cancel plans or get a venue that is too big for what your budget allows, which could also end up wasting money in the long run.

#5 - Book early because things can fill up

The good thing about birthday party packages on the Gold Coast and other areas of Australia is that they are available almost any time of year. The bad thing though is that places tend to book up quickly and may not be around later on down the road because things get booked out very fast! If you would like to take advantage of excellent birthday party deals, then you should book everything as soon as you can, because chances are that the best options will be gone in a week or two.

#6 - Plan things beforehand

Planning isn't everyone's favourite thing to do but it is definitely worth setting aside some time for this task if you're going to have any say over where your guests go partying on the Gold Coast! You need to think about every aspect of the celebration carefully so that you know what sort of birthday party venue is right for what type of event.

#7 - What entertainment would you like?

Is there a birthday theme you're going for? If people don't have anything to do at your party, then they will get bored very rapidly, which means that things won't go as well as you hoped they would at all! So make sure that you choose an area with something for almost everyone and even hire some entertainment services so that your guests have plenty to keep them entertained during their time on the Gold Coast. Whether it's a DJ or a band, go-karting or indoor skydiving, there's a venue on the Gold Coast that will provide entertainment or activities that your guests will enjoy.
