by Tautvydas Pasakinskas
As we rolled into the third month of the year and although the summer is over, the events on the Gold Coast are not! In this blog, we would like to share with you some cool events that you and your friends can enjoy.
Let’s start with Golden Moon Festival, that celebrates the appearance in this world of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, the father of the kirtan movement that has swept the globe, touching the hearts of millions of people. And no, it is not only for those who believe in a higher power, but it is also a family-friendly event where everyone can enjoy live music, have a picnic and socialize.
Date: Tuesday, 10 March
Time: 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Where: Justins Park, 1698 Gold Coast Highway, Burleigh Heads, QLD 4220
As we are located on one of the most beautiful coasts in the world, it is important to acknowledge our magical and still not fully discovered ocean. To celebrate its beauty, the divers, surfers, swimmers and oceanographers who live for the sea’s salt spray; who chase the crests of waves; and who marvel at the mysteries of the big blue. This includes most of us. And we can do that by attending Ocean Film Festival World Tour. It is designed to mesmerise and enthral. The Ocean Film Festival World Tour showcases a 3-hour celebration of our oceans comprised of sublime footage taken above and below the water’s surface. The festival is filled with moving footage, touching interviews and insightful narrations. Each of the festival’s films conveys a deep respect and appreciation for the world’s oceans and the creatures that call them home.
