2019 Gold Coast 500 Supercars
VENUE: SURFERS PARADISE STREET CIRCUIT, GOLD COAST, QLD
2019 Gold Coast 500 Packages & Tickets
Join us at the Party in Paradise in 2019 with sun, surf and Supercars by day and chart-topping performances by night!
The Gold Coast 600 has had a recent format change and is now a single 500km race with the starting order to be set by a pair of Race for the Grid sprints, similar to the Sandown 500. This means the Gold Coast 600 is now the Gold Coast 500 and will be bigger and better in 2019 and beyond!
The Gold Coast 500 is one of Queensland’s biggest events and takes over the streets and beaches of Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast each year in mid October. It’s a prime location for fans to enjoy all the region has to offer combined with high-octane action at one of the toughest circuits in Supercars.
The race itself winds through the skyscrapers on a bumpy, tight and fast circuit with Grandstand and Hospitality options available to enjoy the best track views with beach and ocean backdrops making for a scenic experience.
Besides the racing, sun and surf; the Party in Paradise always puts on a huge entertainment lineup with artists like the Hilltop Hoods, Lil Jon, The Thundamentals, Cold Chisel, The Living End and many more headlining the post-race celebrations.
Over a number of years, as an Official Travel Agent for Supercars, we have been providing Gold Coast 500 Packages to help fans travel to and experience the event with value, quality and comfort. 2019 will be no different. Customers who go every year rave about the incredible accommodation options we’ve provided right next to the track with our signature track view rooms available to make your experience unforgettable.
For the next edition of the Party in Paradise, we will have a range of Gold Coast 500 Packages including 4 and 5-star accommodation options with guaranteed track views from your private balcony! Within our packages we will be offering Official Tickets including Grandstand Tickets, Hospitality Packages and additional travel services such as flights, car hire and more. We can also sell Hospitality Packages individually, without accommodation which might be useful if you live in the area.
We look forward to welcoming you to Gold Coast for a celebration of Supercars, sun and surf — we hope you will join us!
Our Gold Coast 500 Packages are under construction, so we encourage you to register your interest to be notified when they go on sale.
Mount Panorama Circuit
Originally constructed in 1938 as a scenic tourist drive, Mount Panorama has hosted all types of motorsport including the world famous Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000, the annual 12 Hour GT race, 24 Hour endurance races and the Easter motorcycle meetings.
The circuit is a public road on non-race weekends and has also hosted the Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix in the past. It remains one of the all-time favourite circuits for Supercars drivers and is ranked among the great race tracks of the world.

Seven different drivers – Garth Tander, Mark Winterbottom, Greg Murphy, Will Davison, Jamie Whincup, Shane van Gisbergen and David Reynolds – have taken the last seven Bathurst 1000 pole positions.
All drivers compete for the Peter Brock trophy at Bathurst, though since its inception in 2006 the trophy has been the exclusive domain of three teams: Triple Eight Race Engineering, Holden Racing Team and Prodrive Racing Australia.
Triple Eight Race Engineering have six wins (2006, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2015), while HRT (2009, 2011) and PRA (2013, 2014) have two apiece since the trophy was created following the death of the nine-time race winner Brock in September 2006.
