Gold Coast Waitangi Day and Pacific Island Festival

There’s a special connection between Australia and New Zealand. Both countries are located very close to each other. They are very popular because of their scenic attractions. Most of all, they experienced being under the British crown. Because of the proximity, it’s easy for two countries to share almost the same culture. Thus, it’s not surprising to have the Gold Coast Waitangi Day and Pacific Island Festival.

What the Festival Is About

The festival is actually in time for the New Zealand National Day. It celebrates the treaty agreement between the native Maori of New Zealand the British government. When it began in 2002, it was very small but now is it’s a huge event widely celebrated by more than 10,000 people from all over the world.

The next event will be on February 6, 2011, from 10am to 5:30pm. It will be held in the sports field of Carrara and offers free entry for children under 12 years old.

What to Do

You better be prepared next year, as so many activities await you. The kids will surely enjoy riding the various carnival rides and seeing child-friendly attractions. They can also expose themselves to the different animal farms and even get to touch or ride the ponies. They may even find themselves mingling with the sheep dogs. Competitions will also keep them up to their toes.

Visual lovers can take advantage of the presence of the Moko artists. You can also get a glimpse of the culture of the Maori through the special performances of the dancers of Aviki Nui Cook Island.

Special performances can also be looked forward to on stage. These will include the Dragon and Todd Hunter.

The day will also be filled with several stalls, where you can dine on authentic Polynesian food and acquaint yourself with crafts that you can take home as souvenirs.

The year 2011 may be quite far, but that doesn’t mean you should be lagging behind when it comes to room reservation. If you’re waiting for the best time, it is today. Keep in mind that the festival attracts throngs of people. To make sure you can have the Gold Coast accommodation option you really like, use our database as soon as possible.
