Answer The Call For The Best Getaway Of All

Answer The Call For The Best Getaway Of All

27 Jun 2024

Brisbanites can take an exciting call inside an intriguing phone booth with the Holiday Hotline arriving in the city’s CBD for four-days only. It’s a call that will make their day… or more specifically, their holiday!

As participants step inside this immersive audio-visual experience, which brings the sights and sounds of the Gold Coast to life, they'll answer a ringing phone and take a quiz to uncover their personality profile.

Based on their results, they’ll receive a customised two-day itinerary featuring unique events, activities, experiences, and attractions tailored to their perfect Gold Coast getaway.

They’ll also score discounts on Gold Coast experiences and accommodation plus go in the running to win the ultimate holiday in the seaside city that’s a much-loved getaway destination for Brisbane.

Experience Gold Coast Head of Marketing Brant Hirst said the activation is designed to create a sense of FOMO among Brisbanites by personalising a range of events paired with additional activities or experiences.

"We wanted to bring Stay & Play to life for Brisbanites in an engaging yet educational way that leaves our audience with a tangible benefit," he said.

"Holiday Hotline does just that by positioning the Gold Coast as the ultimate destination to visit, and in turn, drive greater intention for overnight stays.

“It leverages events, activities, and experiences to personalise itineraries for Brisbanites, leaving them with the idea that there's so much more to do on the Gold Coast than they might have realised."

Whether you want to enjoy quality time with your favourite people at Groundwater Country Music Festival, chase your next adrenaline high at Pacific Airshow Gold Coast, have fun with friends at the Boost Mobile Gold Coast 500 or soak up the great outdoors at SWELL Sculpture Festival, the Holiday Hotline will deliver exciting inspiration for your next trip.

The Holiday Hotline forms part of Stay & Play, which is a year-round events-led campaign targeted to the Brisbane drive market. For more information, visit

Thursday 27th June: 9am-7pm

Friday 28th June: 9am-8pm

Saturday 29th June: 9am-5pm

Sunday 30th June: 10am-5pm



To take part, participants will simply step inside the booth and complete a personalised quiz to enjoy their Holiday Hotline experience. Afterwards, they’ll be emailed a customised itinerary for a two-day Gold Coast getaway. It’ll also include promotions for Experience Oz and Minor Hotels’ properties including Oaks Gold Coast Hotel, Oaks Calypso Plaza Suites and Avani Broadbeach Residences.
