Enjoy Christmas on the Gold Coast with Princess Palm

Christmas is a unique experience each year on the Gold Coast, when festive lights line each esplanade, restaurants bolster their menus and both locals and tourists gather on the beach to sing Christmastime carols.


For December, make your 2019 Christmas one to remember with our beachfront Palm Beach apartments, where, before the big day, you can experience Christmas in a fantastic new location near a number of famous annual carolling events, live shows and bustling Christmas markets.

Here at Princess Palm on the Beach, we offer an affordable range of one and two bedroom apartments on Palm Beach QLD – a stunning Gold Coast destination only a 15-minute drive away from both Broadbeach and Coolangatta. Our accommodation is fully self-contained and modern, complete with breathtaking views of Palm Beach and the Pacific Ocean.


Whether you’re planning a family escape or a romantic Christmas with a partner, our beachfront holiday apartments have your ideal stay in mind. With us, here are just a few exciting – and free – Christmas Gold Coast events that you can catch during your festive getaway.


Tugun Lights Up 2019

Tugun, a 5-minute drive from our Palm Beach Gold Coast accommodation, is starting Christmas in full festive spirit this December with its annual lights-on event near Tugun Beach. Tugun Lights Up sees Tugun Village come to life with Christmas trees, lights and festive markets, offering an unmissable atmosphere and lots to see and do for the whole family.

Be in Tugun on the evening of November 30 to join the crowds in witnessing the lights come on for the first time! It’s a sight to behold as Tugun officially welcomes Christmas on the Gold Coast, complete with a special host, street decorations and market stalls selling a variety of festive treats and gifts, such as decorations, souvenirs and hot food and drinks.

The festivity in Tugun will continue throughout December, so if you miss Tugun Lights Up 2019, the lights and markets will still remain in the run-up to Christmas Day.


Coolangatta Christmas Carols 2019

One of the big annual carolling events on the Queensland Gold Coast, Coolangatta Christmas Carols isn’t to be missed for holidaymakers looking to stir up the excitement for Christmas Day. Held in Queen Elizabeth Park next to Coolangatta Beach, this must-attend event is a warm experience for all with live entertainment on stage, market stalls and all your favourite carols sang loud under the night sky.

Coolangatta Christmas Carols gets bigger each year, and this December it will feature a live performance from Australian entertainer Denis Walter, who, in recent years, has lent his impressive baritone voice to renowned national events such as the annual Carols by Candlelight in Melbourne.

In addition to live Christmas songs on stage, there will be plenty of market and food stalls inside Queen Elizabeth Park, with festive items and tasty hot food to get your hands on. The Coolangatta Christmas Markets will be available late in the afternoon before the carolling begins at 5.30pm.

This year, Coolangatta Christmas Carols 2019 is going plastic-free, offering four onsite refill stations for attendees bringing their own water bottles. As with each year, Coolangatta Christmas Carols is free to attend, so there’s no excuse to miss it on Sunday, December 15!

Summer – The Best Time to Visit the Gold Coast

As well as the widespread Christmas spirit in December, summer brings a whole new atmosphere to the Gold Coast, providing the best climate for exploring everything it has to offer! Palm Beach is central to some of the most exciting locations and attractions on the Gold Coast, so you can be sure to find a plethora of things to do and places to visit with us at Princess Palm on the Beach. 

Palm Beach Gold Coast is sure to take your breath away from the moment you arrive, but it’s also worth visiting Palm Beach Parklands just a short walk from our location, which offers gorgeous rainforest scenery that merges with Currumbin Creek – a top tourist spot for kayaking, picnicking and swimming.

In Currumbin, south of Palm Beach, don’t ignore Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary – the Gold Coast’s leading animal attraction – Elephant Rock on Currumbin Beach and the chance to explore Currumbin Valley. We’re also just a short drive from neighbouring Burleigh Heads, home to Burleigh Head National Park, surf-friendly Burleigh Beach and the monthly Burleigh Village Markets.

Alfresco dining is the perfect pastime as you discover everything our location has to offer, and on Palm Beach, you’ll find a wide choice of celebrated local cafés and restaurants to enjoy as you relax in our Palm Beach QLD accommodation.
