A Quick Guide to NightQuarter on the Gold Coast

Friday and Saturday nights the drinks flow and the food is plentiful.

This shipping container city may look like it’s sprung out of nowhere, but NightQuarter has more than 120 food, design and craft stalls. The doors open here every Friday and Saturday night from 4 to 10 pm to a buzzing street carnival atmosphere.

Start in Tapas Street and share your way through porchetta and tostada bowls, oozy hot potatoes and burgers. Stop for a cocktail, craft beer or wine at Kudu Bar. Dine in comfort under one of the two dome tents and don’t forget to check out the action at The Paddock where live music and local talent will entertain you.

The Backyard Bar and Barbecue precinct has been inspired by the rough heritage of the shearing shed and the character of an outback pub. You can cook your own meal around the barbecue fire pit fuelled with sustainable hinterland timber. Prop yourself up at the bar with Queensland’s iconic XXXX beer and watch the footy on the big screen. It doesn’t get much more Aussie than this.

Find NightQuarter at the northern end of the Gold Coast, off the Gold Coast Highway at Helensvale near the Helensvale train station and across the road from Westfield Helensvale Shopping Centre.
