Hoping to catch a glimpse of the stars as they arrive for the Gold Coast Logies? Here's where you might be able to.

The fan favourites are already arriving, with Costa Georgiadis, Jules and Cam from MAFS, Shelley Craft, Eve Morey, Ryan Moloney, Bonnie Anderson, Bernard Curry, Robbie Magasiva and Fox League talent all scheduled to touch down before today's Logies Stars in the Park event.

Whether you're keen to bag an autograph from one of the international guest stars or your heart is set on a selfie with Toadie from Neighbours, here's where you need to be to boost your chances of seeing one of these elusive creatures in the wild.

THE STAR GOLD COAST

It makes sense to go straight to the source, but loitering in the lobby and getting side-eye from security isn't your only option.

The scene of the 61st TV Week Logie Awards is also home to celebrity hotspot Nineteen at the Star.

Nineteen was the preferred place to party at last year's Logies, but its ritzy roll call also includes Matt Damon, Chris Hemsworth, Elsa Pataky, Usain Bolt, Johnathan Thurston, Dami Im, Nick "Honey Badger" Cummins and every Insta-famous face worth their teeth-whitening endorsement fee.

Upmarket Japanese restaurant Kiyomi, with its moody lighting and private nooks, is also worth a look.

ELK ESPRESSO, BROADBEACH

Pick up a nice lunch while you’re on the hunt for celebs.

Fact: celebrities love pork belly waffles as much as the rest of us.

Elk Espresso, which has the stamp of approval from Orlando Bloom and Zara Tindall (nee Phillips), is also an easy stroll from Sofitel Broadbeach and Peppers Broadbeach, where TV talent is bunking down. Our girl Margot Robbie was a regular at Elk way back when she was on Neighbours.

HELLENIKA, NOBBY BEACH

A-listers expect discretion and VIP service and they know they're going to get it this Nobby Beach institution.

Mick Doohan, Mick Fanning, Kelly Slater, the Saudi royal family, Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz, Jerry Bruckheimer … it would be faster for us to list who hasn't taken advantage of Hellenika's hearty hospitality.

BAM BAM BAKEHOUSE, MERMAID BEACH

In showbiz and need a restaurant tip, who you gonna call? MasterChef's Matt Preston, of course.

After personally conducting a thorough taste test, he recommends Bam Bam Bakehouse at Mermaid Beach. If you want to sit where Margot Robbie once supped, ask for table 24.

RICK SHORES, BURLEIGH HEADS

Operating on the same theory of expert endorsement, MasterChef's Matt Preston, George Calombaris and Gary Mehigan stopped by the Burleigh beachfront restaurant in late February to film an episode of the TV show. Maybe they got the tip from fellow fan Miley Cyrus.

THE WILD CARDS

The Project's Tommy Little has been known to hang out at Hooters in Surfers Paradise … he likes the chicken wings.

While it's been reported invitations to some of nominee Married At First Sight's most notorious cast members, including Ines Basic and Jessika Power, have been lost in the mail (*not the official line), odds are they'll be orbiting on the fringes awaiting the call-up for those all-important after parties. Maybe they'll relive some of the MAFS magic at nearby filming locations The Loose Moose and Roosevelt Lounge in Broadbeach.

Local Mike Gunner will probably shout the ones he's still talking to a bevvy at Burleigh Pavilion. Perhaps catch him en route as he avails himself of the pull-up bars along Burleigh Esplanade.
