Route of Gold Coast Marathon

by Elisabeth Rosentreter

What is the route of the Gold Coast Marathon? And where can you park to see the finish?

The Gold Coast Marathon, held every July, has different tracks depending upon which race you are doing.

The route map for the full marathon can be found here on the official website.

As well as a full marathon, they also have half marathon, 10k Run, 5k challenge and 2 and 4km dashes for the juniors.

The race precinct is around Southport's new Broadwater Parklands roughly opposite Australia Fair.

Because the races are run on the roads, there are many road closures and parking will be difficult.

Southport is the place to be for the finish, there is parking in Australia Fair Shopping Centre, but expect it to be busy.

There are other parking spots around Southport that are within walking distance of the race precinct.

Anna, the race precinct is at Southport in the parklands area opposite Australia Fair. Both the start and finish are in this precinct though slightly different areas. Hope that helps.
