We all have our own ideas on what the perfect Santa would look like, and we all have our own Christmas Wish List for what we'd like to unwrap under the tree, so why not spend Christmas at Turtle Cove Resort and see if your Christmas Wish comes true!



Tuesday December 25, 10am-10pm

* Christmas Food served every hour until 3pm,

* Christmas Drink Specials every hour,

* Kris Kringle at 3pm.


Whether you're alone this Christmas or simply want a change from the awkward annual family catch up, we'd love to have you spend the day with your Turtle Cove family and enjoy a relaxed day by the pool or on the beach with an all-gay day of festivities.

Special Day-Pass tickets available or getaway package deals that include accommodation and daily breakfast. Details coming soon, so book your room now!!



In 2019 we might be accused of letting our inner-bogan come out again with a special Australia Day Weekend planned. Pop on your thongs, grab that jar of Vegemite and head up to Turtle Cove Beach Resort for a few days!

Kicking off on Friday evening with an extended Happy Hour from 4pm and a poolside dinner from 6pm in the Sandbar Restaurant followed by a special 'Australiana Trivia Night' with prizes up for grabs for the smartest singles or teams.

Then on Saturday Jan 26, we kick back by the pool and enjoy our national day of celebration with a cold Aussie beer and tunes to keep your toes tapping all afternoon. A La Cart dinner will be served from 6pm followed by a Saturday Night Pool Party, with local DJs spinning up the dance party anthems til late! And you can expect to hear more Aussie Dance tracks to keep the dance floor rockin' til the wee hours!

Sunday is our regular busy day on the beach with local day visitors popping in for lunch by the pool and loads of eye candy roaming the grounds. We'll bring out the BBQ for a special buffet dinner spread from 6.30pm with snags, Aussie Lamb chops and we may even throw a shrimp on the BBQ for good measure! Then we'll crank up the tunes again and party through til late with a beach bonfire to light up the night!!

Monday January 28 will be a public holiday so that gives you an extra day to sleep in, relax by the pool and soak up the sun. Enjoy lunch, cocktails, a walk along the beach or a mingle by the pool, however you choose to spend a Monday holiday!

Rooms are still available for those wanting to stay a night, the weekend or even longer, with special discount deals available. 



In 2019, Australia's only gay & lesbian beach resort gets into the Sydney Mardi Gras mood with the perfect way to kick off the Mardi Gras Parade & Party weekend, followed by the popular annual MARDI GRAS RECOVERY Week.

Mardi Gras Parade & Party takes over Oxford Street in Sydney on Saturday March 2 and while the glitter flies down South, TURTLE COVE BEACH RESORT will be kicking up its heels in the Far North.

Friday March 1 kicks off our Mardi Gras week with sensational cocktails and meals all night and a late night spa & pool session to get the weekend underway. Over the weekend we'll have special treats to keep the party vibe going and we'll screen the parade replay on the big screen in the bar! 

Then, from Sunday March 3 we welcome the flights from Sydney as people head north for the sunshine, poolside tunes, cocktails and the best post-Mardi Gras week. Meet other gay & lesbian international and local guests and relax on the beach before heading home from Australia's biggest LGBTI calendar event.

TURTLE COVE MARDI GRAS RECOVERY is a popular annual event and accommodation bookings fill fast, so be sure to reserve your room NOW!
