Organisers of the hugely popular Pacific Airshow have revealed the event will be back on the Gold Coast this year – bigger and better than the year before!

Following on from its huge success in 2023, it’s been confirmed the adrenaline-pumping Pacific Airshow will return to the skies of Surfers Paradise from 16 to 18 August 2024.

The show will also feature an expanded lineup along the iconic beachfront, with organisers promising three days of world-class aerobatics and jets, showcasing thunderous power and speed.

“The event promises a mix of heart-pounding excitement and family-friendly entertainment, stretching around 1.5 kilometres of the Surfers Paradise Esplanade,” Pacific Airshow Gold Coast Director Kevin Elliott said.

“We’re building on last year’s smashing success, aiming to make Pacific Airshow Gold Coast an even more breath-taking experience”.

Last year’s event drew a crowd of close to 250,000 people, injecting more than $25 million into the local economy.

Tourism Minister Michael Healy said the Airshow was also a huge boost for local accommodation providers.


“We saw hundreds of thousands of spectators hit the beach to witness what was a spectacular inaugural Pacific Airshow display and I have no doubt tickets will be hot property again this year,” he said.

“The event was also a soaring success for the Gold Coast’s visitor economy, with visitors staying 110,000 visitor nights over the weekend – a welcome boost for local accommodation, restaurants and attractions”.

The Pacific Airshow is currently offering a 2-week early bird special, with General Admission tickets on sale at 2023 prices from today until midnight on 14 February 2024.
