Tugun Lights Up

Every year shops and houses alike will have holiday lights up, and people will flock to the beaches from far and near to celebrate Christmas—the Gold Coast way.

Tugun village, which boasts a yearly Christmas festival called ‘Tugun Lights Up.’ If you’ve had it with the traditional hot Christmas Lunch, and want to relax this Christmas, this is one of the best places to be in the Christmas spirit while relaxing by the pool, right by the beach, not having to drive anywhere once you’ve stopped.

Holiday lights never seem to fail in cheering people up, and add a party to the mix, and there’s high-spirited vibes to spare. In addition to they encouragement for everyone in Tugun to decorate their businesses and houses, there’s always a fantastic street party for all ages to kick off a month-long Christmas celebration.

The festival in Tugun is held in December and like festivals past, there will be face painting, the fun of icing gingerbread men (bring the kids, or let your inner kid have some fun if you don’t have tots with you), roving entertainers, outside dining, booths for arts and crafts, among other fun activities, including a visit from Santa Claus!

If you’re looking for accommodations for your relaxed Christmas holiday, look no further than the Golden Riviera Beach Resort in Tugun. Located less than 50m from Tugun village itself. The resort is right on a patrolled, family-friendly beach if you and the family wish to go have a proper swim in the ocean or walk on the sand. There’s also a heated pool and spa if ocean swimming is not your thing.

After all the holiday fun taking place in Tugun, the relaxing, quiet atmosphere of your apartment at the Golden Riviera Beach Resort will help you wind down. Each apartment has its own balcony, and there are BBQ areas in landscaped gardens if you prefer having a quiet, peaceful dinner with your family, rather than eating at the Tugun festival. For those who prefer a workout that’s more strenuous than just walking around Tugun or on the beach, the resort has a gym as well, so you can keep up with your regular workout and stay fit while on holiday.

No matter how long you plan to stay in the Gold Coast area for Christmas, book your accommodation at the Golden Riviera Beach Resort, walk directly into Tugun for their Tugun Lights Up festival and make your Christmas holiday a truly memorable time that you’ll be talking about for years afterward.
