Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show | Gold Coast

25 May, 2023

Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show
There’s so much going on at the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show on from 25-28 May 2023 that you’ll need a jet ski just to keep up!

Loaded with motor yachts, sailboats, pleasure craft and gadgets, it’s a blockbuster event, over four action-packed days on Australia’s Gold Coast. From SUPs to eFoils, boat accessories and water toys, you’ll find it all at Australia’s largest marine showcase.

There will be plenty of family-friendly fun for the littlies with activities including free face painting and roving character appearances across the weekend. Don’t miss the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary Shows featuring native Aussie animals on Saturday and Sunday. Plus, take a pic with Captain Jack, bop along to sunny tunes from roving music duo Blue Poppy and be dwarfed by the glittering glamazons on stilts.

Clear the decks and prepare yourself for all the boating action you can handle.
