The New Year’s Eve Carnival is back and will once again take over Surfers Paradise in the big countdown to 2019. Taking place each year, the New Year’s Eve Carnival is the best way to welcome the New Year on the Gold Coast, and one that can be enjoyed by all ages, offering a huge program that spans five days with something for all. Don’t miss the opportunity to be in the centre of all the festivity at the 2018 New Year’s Eve Carnival with our central Surfers Paradise family accommodation!

This year the New Year’s Eve Carnival is all set to be the biggest and best yet, with more live entertainment, more carnival rides, and more family-friendly activities for everyone to enjoy and be a part of. Surfers Paradise comes alive each time the New Year’s Eve Carnival takes over, and the atmosphere itself is well-worth experiencing as the Gold Coast’s most sought-after destination becomes even more of a thrill!

At the New Year’s Eve Carnival expect live entertainment in the venues and on the streets, as well as a whole host of family-friendly carnival rides, festive markets, and good food to get your hands on. The buildup is palpable as December 31 nears, and when it does the New Year’s Eve Carnival doesn’t disappoint with three huge fireworks displays (Surfers Paradise Beach and Riverside) before and on midnight, providing the perfect welcome to the New Year!

This year, make your end to 2018 one to remember by being in Surfers Paradise for the 2018 New Year’s Eve Carnival. The event will take place over five days from December 27 until the New Year arrives, and you can be in the centre of it with our Surfers Paradise holiday apartments at Surf Regency.
