FWC2016 Accommodation - July 7th to 10th July 2016 - Gold Coast of Australia






















Hi fellow kickers.

Can I suggest that your accommodation be booked this week.  We have just found out that there are another 3 large events being held on the Gold Coast that same weekend, so the best priced accommodation is going to book out fairly soon. We have been able to get some movement on pricing at 1 of the motels close, see the details below.

What I suggest everyone does is to book their accommodation at any one of the Motels, Hotels, Apartments or resorts, within easy travelling distance of the “Sports Super Centre” at “Runaway Bay”. That way you can stay in the same place for your stay on the Gold Coast. Some of the closest places are listed below, but definitely cheaper if you organise it as a group, because you can share the costs of booking a 2 or 3 bedroom apartment, and if you book a whole group in and are booking several apartments, then you can ask for a discount.

If you are travelling on your own or with only 1 other person, then cost wise the Sports Super Centre is great option, but their accommodation is only available from the 4th to the 7th of July, so you would need to move to other accommodation on the Saturday.  Talk to us about booking the Super Sports Centre, but the other accommodation you will need to book directly.

So, some of the other options are
