Can you conquer the iconic Cooly Classic?

One of our favourite events of the Southern Gold Coast is back: the Cooly Classic – Coolangatta Ocean Swim will be held 30 March. Watch from your balcony at Ocean Plaza Resort or the beach just outside your door as the competitors swim the 2km from Snapper Rocks to Kirra Beach.

There’s also a 1km short course and a free 300m dash for kids with free entertainment at Kirra Surf Lifesaving Club following the event.  If you think you’ve got what it takes to conquer the Cooly Classic registrations close Friday 28 March.

Lights, camera and Gold Coast Film Festival action!

We think the stunning Coolangatta beaches are picture perfect and the film industry agrees. For years our picturesque locations have featured in Aussie films, with Cooly most famously serving as Porpoise Spit in the classic Muriel’s Wedding. The Gold Coast Film Festival, which runs from 3 to 13 April celebrates our vibrant film industry.

This year’s program will excite film buffs with its range of international and local films, seminars and workshops. The festival integrates the Queensland Pop Culture (QPOW!) week from 3 April; events include the Supanova expo and the chance to sing with Sandy and Danny at a Grease movie sing-along event at The Arts Centre on Sunday 6 April.

Stay with us and take in all the excitement the Gold Coast has to offer and then relax in your fully self contained room equipped with a gourmet kitchen, internal laundry, large living areas and private bedroom spaces or retreat to our pool and spa.

Remember to ask us about our 10% discount offer throughout the Bleach Festival when booking your accommodation with us at Ocean Plaza Resort!
