Draculas - Gold Coast

Hooker Boulevard, Broadbeach QLD 4218

Experience Gothic Rock Opera, Fast-Paced Comedy & Creative Insanity at the Gold Coast best theatre restaurant. The production puts a Vampire slant on the tradional Burlesque show.
Swap the sequins for leather studs, the feathered fan with sparking power tools
and you start to get the picture. Fast furious and hysterically funny. Off the main drag in a converted shopping centre, Dracula's doors creaked open with all odds stacked against it. Fortunately the locals fell in love with the eccentric comedy and intimate atmosphere and soon the venue became known for the long quse that would stretch to the end of the block. Eventually the cramped little venue was re furbished and became another Newman creation, The Comedy Clinic. The current location between Jupiters Casino and Pacific Fair shopping center, is a Gold Coast Landmark. A fully operational Ghost Train now takes customers into the theatre. In 2004 Dracula's Gold Coast was awarded the Telstra AMP Australian small business of the year. This year we celebrate 21 years of non-stop performances.

Show is MA 16+.

The Beaudesert Historical Museum is one of the largest country town museums in Queensland, with over 10,000 artefacts covering the Scenic Rim region's industrial and lifestyle heritage. From the humble Mother Potts clothes iron, to the large red Dennis fire engine, there is something for everyone. A favourite photographic opportunity for visitors to Beaudesert Historical Museum is the Milbanks Pioneer Cottage. This cottage was originally built in 1875 by Patrick Milbanks on his Kerry property, out of local hand hewn timbers, slats and shingle roof. It is furnished with a four-poster bed, large cedar sideboard and numerous articles that portray the life of the early pioneers. It was donated to the museum by Patrick Milbanks' grandchildren and relocated to its present site in 1979. Dedicated to the Fire Services by the Governor of Queensland, Sir Leslie Wilson, in 1936 it was considered to be the Rolls Royce of fire equipment. The Dennis Fire Engine was used in South Brisbane for twenty years before working for ten years in Beaudesert. It was donated to the museum by the local brigade after it survived a flood in 1965.
