Accomodation Options for Gold Coast 600
When selecting accommodation for this event there is only limited amount of track side accommodation since they shortened the track. However, you can stay within walking distance in either Main Beach or Surfers Paradise and the G:Link tram makes it much easier to get to the precinct from accommodation on or near the Gold Coast Highway.
It's also important to have the dates for the event so you can plan your stay. Below you will find the current dates for the next Gold Coast 600.
2017 Gold Coast 600 Dates:
Friday 20 to Sunday 22 October 2017
The track is now much shorter than it used to be in Gold Coast Indy days and does not extend as far into Surfers Paradise. With the smaller track the whole race precinct is considerably reduced and many of the hotels and apartments that were once within the track are now outside it.
There are still many easy options for staying in Surfers Paradise, unfortunately, there are less options for being able to see the track from accommodation.
The entertainment precinct is at Broadlands Entertainment Precinct, which is opposite Australia Fair Shopping Centre in Southport just to the north of the race track precinct. This could be walked to from some accommodation in Main Beach or you can now use the G:Link tram to get there.
Gold Coast has both hotels and apartment accommodation ranging from backpackers and 3 star through to 6 star at Palazzo Versace. Apartments are a popular choice for groups, families and those staying for longer periods.
One thing is for sure - get in quick, because accommodation gets booked out and you wouldn't want to miss out.
