Surfers Paradise property owners interested in finding out the history of the Gold Coast could be in luck. In the coming weeks, there are a number of heritage events that will illuminate the region's past and help residents get a better understanding of their local environment.
Acting Mayor Donna Gates said the events will provide free family fun with heritage tours, working displays, live entertainment, vintage cars and market stalls, while allowing a glimpse into the region's past.
Next Sunday (April 27) will see celebrations at the Kirra Hill Community and Cultural Centre, and at the Tweed Heads and Coolangatta Surf Life Saving Club in Coolangatta. The following Sunday (May 4) will see the return of the popular Mudgeeraba Street Party, which Divisional Councillor Glenn Tozer said is one of the area's biggest events.
"This year, the event will showcase the Queensland detachment of the Royal Australian Navy Band, a bullock team display, vintage vehicles, Light Horse demonstrations, bush bands and a silent movie night. This is a great family day out, so come along and get a glimpse of an earlier era," said Mr Tozer in an April 9 statement.
This could provide some fun family entertainment for those with real estate in Surfers paradise over the coming weeks, so be sure to head along if you're interested.
