Arts and culture are gaining rapid momentum on the Southern Gold Coast, with a growing number of events, festivals and artistic outlets that celebrate our unique environment and lifestyle. From surf culture to music, theatre, photography, art, markets, and major events like Cooly Rocks On, Bleach* Festival and Swell Sculpture Festival – the Southern Gold Coast is alive with art and culture all year round.

There are plenty of galleries and art café’s to explore – combining gourmet food and coffee culture and showcasing the work of our talented local artists. With some of the most picturesque beaches and world class point breaks, it's no wonder that the Southern Gold Coast is a favourite location for many photographers. Several local photographers who have long since called the Southern Gold Coast home have documented the fascinating history of surfing throughout our region, and their work is regularly displayed at local festivals and events, as well as the SurfWorld Museum  in Currumbin.
