Tonight to celebrate the end of the Brisbane Festival, Riverfire is set toignite the skyline with a pyrotechnic extravaganza set to an almightysoundtrack. This is one of the most technically challenging and electrifying fireworks displays in Australia.

We enjoy a riverside dinner before watching Riverfire from a vantage point within our hotel, providing unparalleled views of the bridges and Brisbane skyline.

A leisurely start to today, with free time this morning. Take time to do some shopping, rest or maybe explore South Bank. Late morning, we board the coach and head south to the Gold Coast, arriving to enjoy a lunch at the Four Winds 360 Degree Restaurant. Nestled between the beaches of Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach, you can take in the picturesque vistas as far as the eye can see. Savour iconic views, from the golden sand and surf of the coastline, the sparkling ocean on the horizon, to the green tranquillity of the Gold Coast Hinterland. After lunch, we take a take a ride on the Gold Coast’s iconic Aqua Duck. This amphibious vehicle takes us on a guided tour of Surfers Paradise streets before entering the water and showing us the sights of the waterways. Next we make our way to Harbour Town for some retail therapy, wandering around the outlet stores. Late afternoon, we make our way to the Australian Outback Spectacular, set in the Gold Coast’s theme park region. Here we take an exclusive behind the scenes look at the show, meeting some of the cast and the beautiful animals who complete the story. We then take our VIP seats in the top rail section which promise the ‘best seats in the house’, as we saddle up for a captivating journey where yarns come alive with inspiring stories of Australian characters and indulge in a sumptuous 3 course meal.
