What is the best time to visit Gold Coast?

Gold Coast sees bright sunshine for nearly 300 days every year; however, the best time to visit the Gold Coast is between May and October. The warm weather is ideal for beach activities and boat tours. End of January and most of February is the time when humidity is high, and the region sees a lot of rainfall. Also, in the peak winter months of June to August, while the days are sunny, temperatures drop to as low as 11-12 degrees. Owing to its subtropical location, the climate in this region never gets too hot or too cold and the days are mostly dry and sunny. The period from June to August is an ideal time for whale watching. The months from November to April form the low season for tourism in The Gold Coast. You can expect to find the cheapest deals on accommodation and flights, but there will not be any boat tours or parties going on during these months. However, there is a surge in tourism during Christmas and New Year. Travellers are advised to make their bookings in advance to avoid any last minute rush. That being said, the Gold Coast is a year-round destination known for a wide array of outdoor activities like golfing, hot air ballooning, fishing, nature walks etc.
