Wondering what to pack for your dream holiday? The Gold Coast – like much of Queensland – is beautiful one day, perfect the next. The city averages 245 days of fine and sunny weather annually, and those rainy-day exceptions typically fall over summer – from December to February.
Average summer temperatures are 20-28°C (68-83°F). The humid days are usually offset by cool sea breezes.
In autumn (March – May), sunny days are followed by warm nights – making it ideal for outdoor water activities such as fishing and sailing. Autumn temperatures fall between 16-26°C (61-77°F).
The locals love winter days. The season runs from June to August with generally sunny and dry days and comfortable temperatures of 11-21°C (52-70°F). Many Australians escape the cooler weather in the southern states for a Gold Coast holiday at this time of year. The humidity is lower, there is less rain, but the temperature is still pleasant.
If you haven’t been to the Gold Coast during spring, you’re missing out. From September to November, the Gold Coast offers sunny days followed by mild tropical evenings. September can sometimes be windy, making it great for sports such as kitesurfing, kiteboarding, windsurfing and sailing. Temperatures fall between 15-25°C (59-77°F).
