The Gold Coast Show is back for 2013 with family friendly entertainment. Have a fun family day out at the Gold Coast Show 2013

If you're planning your family holiday in Queensland, make sure to include a visit to the Gold Coast Show for an outing you won't forget!

This year is a very special edition of the annual community event as it marks the 24th year that Parklands has been home to the much-loved show.

All the traditional favourites will be out in force at the festival, including rides, stalls, fireworks and even an animal nursery, so get your accommodation sorted at one of Mantra's hotels on the Gold Coast to make sure you and your family can get a slice of the action!

The show will be held from August 30 - September 1 so there's plenty of opportunity to get your fill of fun, food and carnival attractions.

Entertainment, rides and showbags

Kids and adults alike will be pleased as punch with the lineup for the 2013 Gold Coast Show. Classic carnival rides such as the pony ride, ferris wheel, carousel and more will be available for the whole family to enjoy.

You'll also get to take home some goodies as well, with "showbags" filled with chocolate, lollies, quirky gifts and more on display at the Show Bag Pavilion.

There's also a wide range of exhibits and displays covering the arts, science, history, culture, innovation and creativity and even more to peruse at your own pace, so the adults will have plenty to enjoy as well, while the kids play around on the attractions and rides.

Another high point of the show are the various competitions, which include cattle and livestock judging, creative arts, poultry, horses, goats and dogs and even a wood chop contest.

Ticket information

This year, admission prices for the show range from $35 plus a booking fee for a family pass, with children four years and under able to attend free of charge.

Located at Parklands Drive in Southport, the Gold Coast Show is easily accessible from a range of nearby Mantra hotels such as Mantra Sun City.
