Monster Machinery Day


Plan Your Journey With
G:Link Trams

City of Gold Coast’s Monster Machinery Day is back!

Head on over to Broadwater Parklands to check out everything that digs, scoops, cleans, and beeps!

Now in its 18th year, this free family event has become one of the city’s most popular annual events and gives residents a chance to see the fleet of machinery transforming and maintaining our city.

So dust off your hard hats and make a day of it as you imagine yourself as a landscaper, lifeguard, beach cleaner, construction worker or dune protector.

With over 40 city vehicles on display, including excavators, tip trucks, road sweepers, beach tractors and even a boat, the big kid in all of us will enjoy it too!

There’ll be free activities on offer including live machinery demonstrations, a Hot Wheels display, a sustainability workshop, and a giant sand pit. And let’s not forget your favourite food trucks!

Leave the toy trucks at home and get your little diggers down to City of Gold Coast’s Monster Machinery Day on Sunday 29 May, 9am – 3pm – where the toys are life-size.

Monster Machinery Day is proudly supported by 102.9 Hot Tomato.

Catch the G:link, hop on the Hopo Ferry, or make your journey active and walk, ride, scoot or skate to the event.
