Pacific Airshow Draws Hundreds of Thousands to Gold Coast

Pacific Airshow Draws Hundreds of Thousands to Gold Coast

The Gold Coast welcomed major crowds to Surfers Paradise for the first annual Pacific Airshow, featuring military and civilian aerial performers.

The inaugural Pacific Airshow has been deemed a resounding success following its three-day run on the Gold Coast this past weekend. The first-time event brought awe-inspiring aerial displays to Australian skies and massive crowds to Surfers Paradise beaches and beyond.

Hailed as a massive achievement for the Gold Coast, the airshow featured thrilling performances by elite pilots from Canada, the United States, and the Royal Australian Air Force. Aerobatic maneuvers by fan favorites like the Roulettes and FA-18 fighter jets wowed the hundreds of thousands of attendees, along with extraordinary solo routines by renowned pilot Matt Hall.

Over 100,000 tickets were sold for the Pacific Airshow, with total attendance estimated near 300,000. The spectacular aerial feats drew substantial crowds not just to the beachfront viewing areas but also to high-rise hotels, restaurants, and farther inland vantage points. Locals and tourists alike embraced the aviation festival.

Ideal weather conditions provided a perfect backdrop for the three days of aviation excitement. Sunny skies, light winds, and warm temperatures delighted attendees and performers alike.

Given the massive success of the inaugural event, organizers Code Four have indicated the Pacific Airshow will return to the Gold Coast for at least the next four years. Further expansion of the air show footprint is also under consideration to accommodate even larger future crowds.

The Gold Coast has truly cemented itself as a premiere Australian destination for airshow enthusiasts from across the country and around the world. If this year’s success is any indication, the Pacific Airshow will continue thrilling crowds on the Gold Coast for years to come.
