Sublime with Rome will play at Coolangatta Hotel April 4

Thu, 29th Mar 2012

After a long hiatus two of the original members of American punk band Sublime are returning to Australian soil to perform. The highly popular act formed in 1988 sold over 17 million albums with hits including What I got and Doin' Time but disbanded after the death of lead vocalist Bradley Nowell in 1996. Accompanied by singer and guitarist Rome Ramire, original Sublime members Eric Wilson and Bud Gaugh will perform at the Coolangatta Hotel on Marine Parade, Coolangatta on April 4. Tickets (from $69) are expected to sell out so don't miss out.

The crew at Jetboat Extreme sends its condolences to the family and friends of Australian Surf Life Saving Championships Under 15s competitor Matthew Barclay who tragically died during the event at Kurrawa Beach on the Gold Coast.

One of the most iconic events on the Australian Surf Life Saving calendar kicks off on the Gold Coast on Monday (March 26). The Australian Surf Life Saving Championships will be held at the highly popular surf spot Kurrawa Beach, which is known for its big surf and beautiful beach. Held on the doorstep of the bustling Broadbeach dining precinct, the event is guaranteed to provide plenty of entertainment for spectators who can watch competitors battle it out during the week of heart-pumping action both on and off the water. With more than 300 surf life saving events to be held over the week long event, competitors will be put to the ultimate test to determine who is the best in the business. The crew at Jetboat Extreme wishes all competitors the best of luck out there. If you are looking for some entertainment on (or off the water) check out our great jet boat experiences here.

Thousands of residents across Australia's flood-hit east have been forced to evacuate as the El Nino weather pattern continues to slam the country. Residents in various parts of NSW and Queensland are fleeing as the rising waters threaten their homes, businesses and lives. In parts of the country the flooding is unprecedented and has seen many rescue missions launched. Unfortunately, the devastating floods have already claimed the life of a motorist whose vehicle was swept off the road north of Gympie in south-east Queensland. Our thoughts go out to all those affected by the floods. Meanwhile, here on the Gold Coast it's business as usual and the forecast is looking good with sun, sun and more sun - perfect jet-boating weather! Check out our exhilarating experience packages here.

If you've ever wondered how you can make a real difference to your community - there's never been an easier way than signing up to help clean up the environment this Sunday (March 4). Clean Up Australia Day, Australia's biggest community participation event, attracted more than 565,000 volunteers in 2011 who collected a whopping 16,545 tonnes of rubbish and junk across Australia. We live in a beautiful country and if we don't look after it we will lose our most prized possession - the environment. Let's go one better this year - grab a bunch of mates and get stuck in. To register your own Clean Up site or volunteer at one of the thousands of registered sites register online at http://www.cleanupaustraliaday.org.au/register. Let's do this!
