7 Unmissable Events in March Near Rocks Resort Currumbin
There’s always an exciting show or festival to catch on the Gold Coast, and for March, we’ve rounded up the best events that will take place just moments away from our luxury Currumbin accommodation on Currumbin Beach - the perfect destination if you’re looking to escape this autumn 2020.
Situated in laid-back Currumbin with Broadbeach, Coolangatta and more reachable in a short drive, our prime location at Rocks Resort offers the region’s most exciting things to see and do, including all the most exciting monthly events, with picturesque Currumbin Beach, Currumbin Creek and world-class Currumbin restaurants on your doorstep.
This March, here’s every unmissable event coming near our family-friendly Currumbin Beach resort:
Relax on Currumbin Beach and watch Australia’s best SUP athletes compete against the clock on a challenging 15-kilometre course from Snapper Rocks to Burleigh Heads. 12 Towers Ocean Paddle Race, held each year, is an offshore spectacle to watch along the Southern Gold Coast, and an iconic stand-up paddle-boarding event which takes its name from the 12 lifeguard towers competitors pass as they race to the finish line.
This event will take place over two days, also involving a shorter course that will finish at Currumbin Alley, mere footsteps from our location. To absorb all the action, mark your calendar for 12 Towers 2020 on the weekend of March 6.
In a short drive from Currumbin, visit The Star Gold Coast this March for an evening of Simon and Garfunkel performed by sensational tribute duo Bookends, made up of Dan Haynes and Pete Richards.
An internationally acclaimed act, Bookends bring the songs of Simon and Garfunkel to life in their authentic live tribute, which has stunned fans in the US, UK and other countries around Europe. Through the Years pays homage to their early days right up to their chart-topping global success, which shouldn’t be missed for Australian fans on March 7.
Several songs of Simon and Garfunkel will also be performed live in Rolling Vietnam Thunder - a story-driven theatrical concert with emotionally charged war-inspired songs from the ‘60s and ‘70s - coming to The Star Broadbeach on March 21.
