The world’s greatest pyrotechnicians will bring their explosive skills to Surfers Paradise next month when SeaFire, presented by Wyndham Vacation Resorts Asia Pacific, ignites an astonishing display of world-class fireworks set to a vibrant musical score.
In an Australian-first, two of the world’s leading fireworks designers who were responsible for the London Olympics and the Beijing Olympics ceremonies respectively, will go head-to-head with awe-inspiring aerial shows of exploding colour, light and sound off Surfers Paradise beach on Saturday, June 3.
Boasting a full 30 minutes of cutting-edge fireworks displays, up to 60,000 people are expected to witness the two competing international teams each fire off 10-minute displays, creating a stunning, multicultural celebration of the universal appeal of fireworks.
A third fireworks display by one of Australia’s very own leading pyro companies, Skylighter FireworX, will conclude the aerial spectacular.
Opening the thrilling night of hypnotic performance, a special tribute show to the Australian Navy will take place on the beach, where a live band will play the Australian National Anthem as a Seahawk chopper whirrs above the iconic shores of Surfers Paradise beach.
The spectacle fires off in the afternoon, with displays from the Australian Navy plotted up and down the foreshore, while the esteemed Royal Australian Navy Band Queensland will entertain visitors from 2pm to 4pm.
To avoid the crowds, catch the G:Link into Surfers Paradise in the early afternoon, wander along the foreshore to check out the displays, and then grab a bite to eat at one of the many cafés and restaurants in the precinct before the main event commences at 7pm.
Why not make a weekend of it and book an overnight stay in Surfers Paradise, where a plethora of quality accommodation is available to suit all budgets.
An initiative of the Surfers Paradise Alliance, SeaFire is the largest one-day public spectacle on the events calendar, with three separate displays to be launched from three barges, anchored just beyond the break.
SeaFire 2017 will be brought to life by presenting partner Wyndham Vacation Resorts Asia Pacific. SeaFire is a free, family-friendly event, taking place on Saturday, June 3 at Surfers Paradise beach.
