  • Hi,
    I was just wondering what day the 2014 Show day public holiday fell on next year ?
    I have googled many calendars many of my results varied
    Kind regards
    Jac ☺️

    • Hi Jacqui,

      Thanks for emailing. I have looked at a few other sites too and Friday 29 August 2014 seems to be the date that is being listed.

      Official dates will be released soon enough (they did the same thing last year), but the date above makes sense as they usually nearly all events within a day or so of the previous year.


    • Hi Emma,

      I have just searched the internet and couldn’t find prices for any of the showbags. They do have a list on the official website, but that is all.

      I have seen on the Show’s Facebook page “we only have the list of what is available online”.

      There was mentions of it being in today’s Gold Coast Bulletin, so maybe try get your hands on a copy.


  • Hi just wondering how much will the rides be at the Gold Coast show 2014? I have looked at a couple sites and there have been no results

    • Hi EJ & Brock,

      Unfortunately the information from the show itself is very limited – in terms of both a ride list and how much they cost.

      Reading up on the show’s Facebook page, all they have said is that there is no ride packages as part of entry tickets and that the usual rides will be there. Not quite sure what that means, but i would say that if you went last year, you’ll probably see the same rides again.

      I know from the Melbourne show that rides there are usually $10 max, so perhaps prepare for the worst and maybe you’ll end up with some spare change in your pocket at the end.


    • Hi Olesya,

      I have hunted down the open hours for Friday and the weekend, and the gates open at 9am and it stays open until 9pm.

      Looking at the event schedule there looks to be a range of activities and performances that run all throughout the day.

      I hope you have a fantastic time!


  • Hi Nat,

    Reviewing the official website, there doesn’t appear to be any passes for multiple days. They do however have discount tickets available before the show starts, so try get in early secure the early bird prices.
