March is the first month in Autumn in South East QLD. The weather is still very warm although starting to cool by the end of the month.
It is a great time to visit the South East of QLD especially if you don’t have to visit during Australian School holidays.
During March there are two major surf carnivals in the early part of the month the Quiksilver Pro International
ASP Tour for Men and Roxy Pro International ASP Tour for Women.
As if that won’t be enough surfing later in the month you’ll be able to see the Australia Longboard Surfing Competition.
This is the time of the year when you can also catch lots of surf life saving carnivals around on the beaches of the Gold Coast.
Wildlife is active at most times of the year and popular this month is bird spotting. The ultimate in bird spotting in South East QLD has to be at O’Reillys Rainforest Retreat. During March they hold their Autumn Birding week with a full program to help bird watchers learn about the area and local birds.

Quiksilver & Roxy Pro Gold Coast
End of February to Early March
Location: Southern Gold Coast or Northern NSW Beaches depending on surf conditions
The Quiksilver Pro surfing competition on the Gold Coast is the first leg of the Men’s ASP World Tour.
Locations for the competition depend upon weather and surf conditions during the event.
The Roxy Pro surfing competition on the Gold Coast is the first leg of the Women’s ASP World Tour. As with the men’s comp, locations for the competition depend upon weather and surf conditions during the event. Most surfing spots used in the past in these competitions are in the southern Gold Coast. Snapper
Rocks is a favourite.
If you want to be near the action, it is best to stay in suburbs such as Burleigh Heads, Palm Beach, Currumbin,
Tugun, Bilinga, Kirra or Coolangatta.
Michael Workman - Nothing You Do Means Anything
1st March to 5th March
Location : Brisbane Powerhouse Graffiti Room
This is a show about that. And bees. It’s pieced together from angry letters to the editor and half cut off biographies from Fantales wrappers. It’s sometimes quite beautiful and lucid, and other times it’s manic and frightening.
Nothing You Do Means Anything is broken and parts of it are on fire. It smells like wet carpet, and it leans to one side, but that’s kind of good. This is the most iconoclastic show multi-award winning comedian Michael
Workman has produced. It may kill him.
The Essential Baby & Toddler Show Brisbane
3rd March to 5th March
Location: Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre
For a family fun day, pack your bags and head down to the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre on the 3rd-5th March 2017. From 250 national and international brands to shop from, parenting experts such as Pinky McKay, and a live performance from Hi5 for the kids.

ARL / NRL Masters Carnival
Wed 8th to Sat 11th March
Location: Runaway Bay Junior Leagues Club, Lae Drive, Runaway Bay
ARL / NRL Masters Carnival - Australian Rugby League Masters for over 35s. This event just gets bigger and bigger each year! I’m just a bit confused as to whether this is ARL or NRL - but it doesn’t matter really!
Runaway Bay has a few places to stay, just not as many as some of the surrounding areas. Suggestions include Labrador, Southport or north to Hope Island.
Bleach Festival Gold Coast
31 March to 16 April
Location: Various Locations around Gold Coast, main events from Currumbin to Coolangatta
