Now is the time to arrange your visit to the Gold Coast in Australia, for the Indy carnival from the 19th to the 23rd of October. The carnival features four days and nights of fantastic races and racing nightlife to keep the party animal in you satisfied. The carnival roars into life with the V8 super cars and all of the colour and glitz of the Indy girls parading round the circuit and the balconies on the high rise apartments surrounding the circuit alive with partying race lovers. The track itself has been shortened since the carnival has been changed to a V8 supercar carnival only and the indy cars have stayed at home in the USA. During the racing carnival the air is filled with helicopters and fighter jets as part of the display. There is almost too much action to take in. Gold Coast V8 Supercar car accommodation is home to many other spectacular attractions that make it a favourite destination for many holidaymakers who return year after year, to be part of the action. The Gold Coast is located in the subtropical region in the south east corner of the state of Queensland and the area is world famous for its magnificent surfing beaches, its mountainous and rainforest filled hinterland, its terrific theme parks and the quality of its shopping, dining and leisure facilities. It is now an international holiday destination sought after from the world over.
Accommodation is spread mostly along the beach front from Coolangatta in the south through Burleigh Heads, Broadbeach, Surfers Paradise, Main Beach, along the Southport spit and Broadwater. If you want luxury accommodation fronting the Supercar track during the carnival there is limited availability as many apartments are booked year in and year out by race lovers so book early and be prepared to pay a premium. From the sea you will see a panoramic vista of high rise resorts spreading along the pacific coast for nearly thirty kilometres. Here lies a range of accommodation ranging from budget backpacker hostels through to some of the most luxurious hotels and resorts in the world. There is also a wide range of family apartments and almost everything is located within a stones throw of the beach. The major family attractions on the Gold Coast are its magnificent theme parks. SeaWorld, Movie world, Wet n Wild water park and Dreamworld. Each of these will entertain the family for at least a day and then in the evening you can take in the Australian Outback Spectacular which includes the show and dinner. The Gold Coast beaches are among the best in the world and are all patrolled by the famous Australian lifeguards. At the weekends there are commonly surf carnivals and iron man competitions which are especially spectacular if the surf is up.
The Gold Coast is home to a number of fantastic shopping plazas. Robina shopping plaza, Pacific Plaza at Broadbeach and Harbourtown Shopping fair at Runaway Bay will all help to calm the shopaholic in need of a fix. There are also tourist oriented shopping plazas at Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach. The range of restaurants and cafes is mind boggling, and the quality of the food and wine is second to none. Australia is famous for the quality of its local seafood, beef and lamb and some Australian wines are ranked among the world’s best. Splash out on a bottle of Grange Hermitage and tell your friends you have shared the best red wine in the world.

The international airport caters for overseas visitors wanting to visit the Gold Coast and transfers to and around the coast are available by coach, rail or limo.
