QUEEN – Bohemian Rhapsody

Freddie Mercury is regarded by many as the most charismatic and outspoken performer in modern rock. And Queen is one of the best rock bands of the 20th century. Fresh off the success of the Bohemian Rhapsody motion picture, renowned Australian Freddie Mercury impersonator Thomas Crane will present a brand-new Queen tribute concert on June 17 at The Star Gold Coast.

Thomas and his hot band Bohemian Rhapsody revive the visual thrill, auditory enthusiasm, and theatrical fervour experienced during a Queen concert.


Bunburra cultivates leadership abilities and sporting prowess in young people chosen for their conduct and continued accomplishments throughout the year. It also awards these inspired youth. The Indigenous beach touch football competition Bunburra, named after the Yugambeh word for “beach,” is hosted annually on the Gold Coast and is open to young people aged 14 to 17 from twelve Indigenous communities. In Surfers Paradise, Bunburra is on June 17. Milky Way Breakfast Festival On June 24, the Outdoor Stage of HOTA will host the Milky Way Breakfast Festival, a morning festival of Music for Toddlers & Dogs. Maree Field from the Outback Spectacular will perform with her border collies and is a guest with Charlie.

Bring your dog to this special session with music for these four-legged pals to walk and play. Yes, there is music specifically designed for dogs, with melodies and frequencies that are inaudible to human ears but have a unique appeal to dogs. Grab a coffee, your family, and your four-legged companion, then unwind on the lawns while enjoying music and puppies to start your morning!

Do you adore dogs a lot? Here’s a bonus. On July 26, HOTA will host the Top Dog Film Festival. The festival is a two-hour cinematic tribute honouring the relationship between dogs and their owners.
