Attending the Mudgeeraba Show

Every year the Mudgeeraba Show proves to be a real drawcard, bringing thousands to the area. This means that parking can be a little problematic. There is some street parking beside Liberti Church for $10 per vehicle, but we find it easier to park and ride for a gold coin from Firth Park, Robina Train Station, and Gold Coast Hinterland & Heritage Museum.

Making the most of community events

It’s events like the Mudgeeraba Show that remind us how lucky we are to be living in such a beautiful part of the world where the community focuses on really giving back. Getting out there, getting amongst it and experiencing all that’s on offer is a great way to participate and grow that Gold Coast community spirit.
