Pacific Airshow Gold Coast 2024: Surfers Paradise Set to Soar Again

As the waves break along the iconic Surfers Paradise, the skies above are preparing for an equally spectacular display. The Pacific Airshow Gold Coast is returning from the 16th to 18th August 2024, following the resounding success of its inaugural event.

Last year’s airshow drew an impressive crowd of nearly a quarter of a million, contributing an estimated $25 million to the local economy. This year, organisers are expecting to outdo themselves, with an expanded event footprint that promises to be an even more stunning attraction.

Tickets are set to go on sale from today, with a tantalising “Early Bird Special” that holds prices at last year’s rates until the stroke of midnight on Valentine’s Day. The offerings range from an accessible $45 for a single-day adult pass to the lavish Beach Club package, priced from $625 per person, which includes hosted food and drinks.

Kevin Elliott, the director of Pacific Airshow Gold Coast, expresses his excitement for the upcoming event, urging enthusiasts to book their spot on the sand posthaste, “Given we sold out tickets for last year’s event, I strongly suggest you secure your space very early.”

Attendees can look forward to three days of unparalleled aerobatics and jet performances, which will extend approximately 1.5 kilometres along the esplanade. The event is poised to strike a balance between thrilling action for the adrenaline junkies and family-friendly entertainment for those who prefer a more relaxed atmosphere.

Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate echoes this sentiment, encouraging locals and visitors alike to embrace the event, “Strap in, Gold Coast… after the staggering success of its debut last year, the adrenaline-pumping Pacific Airshow Gold Coast is back – bigger and better than before.”

The show is more than just an airborne spectacle; it’s a significant economic catalyst for the region. Tourism Minister Michael Healy highlighted the inaugural event’s impact, “We saw hundreds of thousands of spectators hit the beach to witness what was a spectacular inaugural Pacific Airshow display and I have no doubt tickets will be hot property again this year.”

Healy also noted the boon for the Gold Coast’s visitor economy, with the airshow generating 110,000 visitor nights, benefitting local accommodations, restaurants, and attractions.

The Pacific Airshow is setting the stage to not only entertain but also to reinforce the Gold Coast’s reputation as a premier events destination. With the promise of world-class aerobatics and a bustling beachfront, the event is shaping up to be an unforgettable experience.

As the event prepares for takeoff, the organisers are committed to creating lasting memories. Whether through the roar of jets overhead or the shared joy of witnessing human ingenuity in flight, the Pacific Airshow is on course to be an annual highlight of the Gold Coast’s vibrant event calendar.

For those keen to join the spectacle, full details and ticketing options are available on the official website at the link below. With the countdown to the 2024 Pacific Airshow underway, anticipation is building for what promises to be another record-breaking event on the sunny shores of Australia’s beloved Gold Coast.
