The Spit

The Spit is the peninsula that stretches all the way up to the Gold Coast Seaway separating the ocean from the Gold Coast Broadwater.

With the CBD as the backdrop across the Broadwater, The Spit features two public parklands; Doug Jennings Park on the Broadwater and Philip Park on the ocean side.

This ample space offers flat grounds, plenty of shade, vast space for car parking and protected open waters. The Spit is a perfect location for any major festival, sporting and water-based event. Past events held in this space include the annual Pacific Fair Magic Millions Polo; McLaren Gold Coast Polo by the Sea and Summafieldayze Music Festival.

In addition to being an event space which ticks all of the boxes, The Spit is also conveniently located near a variety of iconic Gold Coast attractions, high-end resorts, hotels, shops and fine dining. These include the popular Seaworld Theme Park and Resort, Sheraton Mirage Resort and Spa, Palazzo Versace, Marina Mirage and Mariner’s Cove.
