Prominent Gold Coast locals unlock keys to the coast to celebrate GC2018

Destination Gold Coast | March 2018

Some of the Gold Coast’s most prominent locals have joined forces and are set to roll out the ultimate welcome mat for one lucky winner and three of their friends come April, bringing to life a money-can’t-buy prize experience.

Keys to the Coast will not only celebrate the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games coming to town, but also what it means to live like a local. Destination Gold Coast explains…

Imagine riding a wave on a surfboard custom signed just for you by surfing legend Joel Parkinson… or snapping up the hottest tickets in town to the Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony thanks to our mates, Olympic gold-medallist Sally Pearson and The Star.

We’re a thoughtful bunch, so we’ve also reserved the best seat in the house at a few of our favourite restaurants for you, handpicked by ironman champion Trevor Hendy… while award-winning singer-songwriter Amy Shark has offered up some guidance on the best music gigs to check out while you’re here.

You can even rub shoulders with some of the world’s most talented sporting stars at The Star’s VIP athlete area ‘The Lawn’ during the Games while you’re treated to delicious bites and beverages.

Plus we’ll fill your pockets with $5,000 spending money in case you feel like indulging in a little (or a lot!) retail therapy during your visit. (And believe us when we say we’re home to some of the best shopping destinations in the country.) Style queen Natalie Gruzlewski has even primed the boutiques ahead of your arrival…

And when it comes to your accommodation, how would you fancy calling a multi-million dollar luxury beach pad just steps from the sand home for the week? Spread over four levels, you’ll enjoy absolute beach frontage, a private 27-metre swimming pool, cinema room, spa… do we need to continue? We’ll even stock your fridge!

Think this all sounds too good to be true? Think again. Come April, all of this could be yours with Destination Gold Coast’s Keys to the Coast competition.

Yes, that’s right – Destination Gold Coast together with a passionate group of local ambassadors are spreading the local love by packaging up the ultimate Gold Coast holiday experience valued at over $30,000, that one lucky person can win during the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games!

Jan Hutton, Chief Marketing Officer of Destination Gold Coast, commented, “We feel incredibly fortunate to call this part of the world our home; it’s a slice of paradise. We want everybody to see what the Gold Coast has to offer, through the eyes of our locals; we believe their sincere passion is almost contagious.”

“From capturing first light with Natalie at the six-star luxury beach house; taking a sneak peek tour of Carrara Stadium with Sally; checking out Trevor’s beloved Surf Life Saving Club, and watching Joel shred some of our iconic surf breaks. This campaign has really given us an opportunity to shine a light on our coastal city through their lens.”
