Planning your 2018 Gold Coast Sporting Event Experience

Planning your 2018 Gold Coast Sporting Event Experience

From the 4th to the 15th April 2018, the Commonwealth will be watching as Queensland’s sparkling Gold Coast plays host to an exhilarating array of professional games and sporting events, including but not limited to: athletics, basketball, beach volleyball, boxing, cycling, diving, gymnastics, hockey, lawn bowls, netball, rugby, swimming, triathlon and weight lifting.

For sports fans, whether athletics enthusiasts or gymnastics gawkers, with less than three months to go until the opening ceremony, it’s now time to get your tickets for the games organised. As advertised on the official website: this is your last chance to buy tickets, as the final major tickets release are now on sale.

Already gotten your tickets to the badminton sorted? Great. Next question: how will you get there? Cramped on public transport like a chump? Stuck in traffic on the M1 (and don’t even get me started on parking)?

Why not fly over all of the chaos of getting there, and arrive at the Gold Coast by helicopter? Pterodactyl Helicopters (and our partners, Monarc Aviation) have organised an exclusive landing site close to Carrara Stadium on the Gold Coast that we are offering to you – our celebrities. Take the hassle out of how you will get to the Games on the Gold Coast and just get on, soak up the atmosphere, appreciate the athletics, savour the swimming, and cheer on the cyclists.

All enquiries regarding helicopter transfers to and from the Gold Coast can be made by calling +61 7 3201 0005, or you can fill out the form on our Gold Coast 2018 Helicopter Transfer page and we’ll call you.

We look forward to making your journey a truly memorable sporting experience.
