Pacific Airshow Gold Coast

The Gold Coast is set to host one of the world’s biggest and most spectacular airshows!

Pacific Airshow Gold Coast – will take-off over Australia’s iconic Surfers Paradise Beach across three days in August 2023.

Renowned for its heart-pumping aerobic displays, awe-inspiring aviation feats, huge crowds and dazzling party atmosphere, Pacific Airshow is the biggest event of its kind in the US and now the inaugural sister event – Pacific Airshow Gold Coast – is set to redefine the airshow experience in Australia too.

The festival will transform the sky over iconic Surfers Paradise into Australia’s biggest stage, with high-flying performances by elite military aviators and the best civilian performers from around the world. The breath-taking aerial feats performed over Surfers Paradise Beach and backdropped by the iconic Gold Coast skyline are sure to excite and amaze.  Combined with the hospitality on offer, the stage is set to attract visitors from across Australia and all over the world.

Originally from California’s famous Huntington Beach, the Pacific Airshow attracts more than three million people for the event. And now, leading US event organisers, Code Four, are expanding their signature event Down Under, bookending the Pacific Ocean with what will be Australia’s biggest ever airshow.

Only a short 35-minute drive from the Gold Coast Airport, Australia’s famous Surfers Paradise Beach is the perfect destination to make any event a memorable one. Located right in the heart of the Gold Coast, Surfers Paradise is home to some of the Gold Coast’s most-hyped bars, restaurants, a large variety of accommodation operators, and is easily accessible from wherever you’re travelling whether it be by tram, bus or car.

Major Events Gold Coast is proud to support the Pacific Airshow in an exciting five-year partnership.

More details and exact dates for the three-day festival will be landing soon. Check out what all the fuss is about by watching the official promo video here.

There has never been an air event of this scale staged anywhere in Australia. That’s why the Gold Coast is famous for fun – in the air and on the ground.
