Gold Coast to host Magic Millions CarnivalThe Magic Millions Carnival and Race Day has been secured by the Gold Coast for a further five years. Minister for Tourism and Major Events Kate Jones announced the new agreement recently.

 

“The Magic Millions Carnival and Race Day is a must-do experience on Queensland’s major events calendar,” Jones said.

 

“Each year this event delivers a significant boost to our economy and showcases Queensland to the world as a premier events and travel destination.”

 

Jones said the Queensland Government’s renewed support through Tourism and Events Queensland would ensure the iconic event remained on the Gold Coast until at least 2022.

 

“Events like the Magic Millions deliver ongoing benefits to Queensland and the regions,” Ms Jones said.

 

“Last year the Magic Millions Race Day delivered an economic boost of more than $12 million and almost 18,000 visitor nights to the Gold Coast.

 

“These outcomes underline the important role events play in growing our tourism industry, which generates $9.5 billion for the Gold Coast economy and supports more than 50,000 local jobs.”

 

Tourism and Events Queensland Chief Executive Officer Leanne Coddington said securing strong event assets like the Magic Millions played a significant part in drawing more visitors to the state.
