Gold Coast Christmas Party Venue Hire Guide

It's almost Christmas time! Have you secured your holiday party venue yet? There are so many things to do on the Gold Coast, but where should you host your holiday party this year? In this guide, we'll help you get started on planning an awesome Gold Coast Christmas party!

Where can I find amazing Christmas party venues on the Gold Coast?

Being a top destination for both tourists and locals, the Gold Coast has a variety of great party venues that will suit your next holiday bash. Some Gold Coast suburbs have more options for hosting parties than others, but the Gold Coast is big enough to accommodate most budgets and tastes.

The best places on the Gold coast offer catering, decorations, entertainment packages, room hire and much more with one booking, so you don’t need to worry about sorting out all your different needs when it comes time for your event! If you're on the hunt for a fantastic venue for your Christmas party this year, start your search in these Gold Coast neighbourhoods:

Surfers Paradise

The Gold Coast's most famous tourist destination is also the place to be for Christmas parties. Surfers Paradise has a wide range of venues, catering and party packages that are suitable for any budget — from inexpensive restaurants with basic decor to lavish resorts with all sorts of on-site entertainment available. With close proximity to the beach and attractions like Dreamworld, you'll have no shortage of things to do in Surfers Paradise.

Main Beach

Main Beach is another great option for Christmas party venues on the Gold Coast. Like Surfers Paradise, Main Beach offers a wide range of beachfront restaurants and bars that cater to all budgets. There are also a number of function spaces available for hire in Main Beach, so you can tailor your event to your specific needs.

Broadbeach/Varsity Lakes

Particularly popular among locals who want something different than what Surfers Paradise offers, Broadbeach or Varsity Lakes offer more quiet locations for hosting your Christmas party. You can find mid-range venues for your holiday party in Broadbeach and high-end resorts in Varsity Lakes.


With plenty of cafes, restaurants and shopping centres within walking distance, these suburbs offer everything from low-budget cafe-style events to luxurious parties at beachside hotels — whatever suits your taste!

Mermaid Beach

Another suburb with its own train station, Mermaid Beach is perfect for a Christmas party venue on the Gold Coast. With the area's most luxurious resorts just minutes away from public transport and close to all of the Gold Coast's top attractions like Dreamworld or SeaWorld, this neighbourhood has something for everyone.

What are the most popular types of Christmas party venues on the Gold Coast?

The type of venue you choose for your holiday celebration will depend on your budget, team or company's preference and the number of guests. These are some of the best types of Christmas party venues on the Gold Coast:

Hotel function rooms

Gold Coast function rooms are the most popular type of Christmas party venue for corporate holiday events. Function rooms in hotels can be a good choice if you're planning to have your event catered from these venues.

Hotels on the Gold Coast can accommodate up to 500 people, depending on the size of their function room. They often have a range of food and beverage package options as well as an event planner who will help you plan your party’s details from start to finish.

Some hotels offer a range of different holiday packages which include accommodation for up to five nights as well as one or two days of activities. Popular Gold Coast hotels with this type of package include The Hilton Surfers Paradise Resort Gold Coast, Novotel Twin Waters Resort Gold Coast and Sheraton Mirage Beach Hotel Gold Coast.


If you're limited by space or budget but want something more than just drinks at the local pub with your team, cafes are a great option for Christmas parties. Consider booking out one side of a cafe so that it feels like its own private venue whilst still taking advantage of all the amenities available in these event spaces.

Some places also offer family-friendly activities such as craft tables, games and colouring sheets if kids might be coming along to your party.


Restaurants with private dining areas can offer great settings for larger corporate holiday functions. Restaurants on the Gold Coast are especially popular during Christmas time, often with festive decorations and menus to match.

If you're organising a large event, it's best to reserve your venue in advance to make sure that they have enough space for all of your guests.

Community hall/function centre

For events with 100+ people, consider booking out community halls or function centres. Some of these event spaces can even accommodate up to 500 people and will typically be able to offer amenities such as catering equipment and tables. However, you should note that these venues don't usually offer as many food and beverage options as a restaurant or a hotel function room.

Waterfront venues

If your event is all about Gold Coast views and outdoor activities, consider booking a waterfront venue. These venues provide an unbeatable location for events with Gold Coast themes, sunset views and outdoor activities.

Other unique event spaces.

The Gold Coast is full of unique event spaces that can make your Christmas party one to remember. From art galleries and museums to zoos and botanical gardens, there's sure to be a venue that suits your event theme.

You can even hire an event space with activities to jumpstart the festive season. Whether you choose disco bowling and escape rooms, take on a ghost tour or catch dinner and show, you and your team are sure to have a blast.

Tips for planning a Gold Coast Christmas party

As this year's office Christmas party planner, you might be feeling a little overwhelmed by all of the choices available on the Gold Coast. Here are some tips to help you plan the perfect event. Consider the following as you look for your perfect holiday party venue and plan the best Christmas party for your friends and colleagues:

Book early

Gold Coast party venues are in high demand during the festive period. Booking early will ensure you get a venue with all of your preferred features and avoid disappointment.

Get the invites out early

Send out invitations well ahead of time so people can plan their schedules around your holiday event. Make use of social media to promote your corporate event with videos and photos from previous parties if possible. You may also want to create a website or blog post outlining everything you'll be doing at your Christmas party, including the venue, date and time.

Theme the event

Themed holiday parties are the best and most memorable ones. And there are so many Christmas party themes to choose from! Maybe go with something traditional for a more understated feel or go all out with some Hollywood glitz to make your Christmas celebration as glamourous as possible. Get your team involved in choosing a theme — they might come up with some unexpected ones!

Hire entertainment

If you're planning an office holiday party, it's a good idea to hire live entertainment like a band or a magician who can delight and impress everyone. A photo booth is another simple way to add some fun to any Christmas event where guests can take selfies that they'll be able to share on social media after the event.

Offer gifts for attendees

Christmas is about giving so why not give something back? You could offer a gift voucher or loot bag that each guest can choose from on arrival at your corporate holiday party! It'll show them how much they mean to you and make the celebration that much more special.

Decorate well ahead of time

Take care when decorating your Christmas party venue to make it festive. This means getting a Christmas tree, wrapping everything in tinsel and paper chains, arranging holly around curtains or using traditional stockings for decoration.

Assemble a team

It can be tough organising all the details of your Christmas party on your own, so don't do it! You'll need someone who can help you find the best event space, plan food options and organise entertainment whilst still making everything affordable. Assemble a group of coworkers to plan the party and don't be afraid to delegate!

Invest in good food

Christmas is all about indulgence so take care when planning your Christmas menu, whether you're catering the event yourself or hiring a caterer. Your venue should be able to recommend some delicious options that suit everyone's tastes or get you in touch with a partner establishment that specialises in catering holiday functions and other special events.
