Australia Day - get out and celebrate!

Thu, 26th Jan 2012

It's time to celebrate being an Aussie! Australia Day comes but once a year and we hope you are all (Australians and non-Australians included) embracing the opportunity to flaunt your national pride and rock out in yellow and green. January 26 commemorates the arrival of the First Fleet at Sydney Cove in 1788 and records indicate celebrations date as far back as 1808. We're looking forward to finding out which members of our community here on the Gold Coast will be recognised in this year's Australian of the Year Awards which will be announced this evening. Stay tuned!

Summer storms hit Surfers Paradise

Jetboat Extreme - Summer storms hit Surfers Paradise - <p>All Gold Coast beaches closed due to weather</p>

All Gold Coast beaches closed due to weather

Wed, 18th Jan 2012

Wild, wet, water... a combination of words which spell fun to the team at Jetboat Extreme but when you are talking about an extreme weather event battering the Gold Coast they conjure up a much more serious tone. All beaches on the Gold Coast were closed as a safety precaution early this week as huge swells and winds of up to 100km/h along with possible flooding were all forecast to hit the coast. The team at Jetboat Extreme is thinking of the two people who lost their lives as a result of the storm and urges everyone to stay safe and avoid taking any risks. We will be keeping a close eye on the warnings and forecasts and hoping things settle very soon. Take care out there!
