When Is The Best Time To Visit Gold Coast?

If only I had a dollar for every time I was asked that question!

Actually, if you add in these two questions:

When is the best time to visit Queensland?

When is the best time to go to Australia?

I'd probably be retired, lying in my hammock on my balcony in the Gold Coast and enjoying the incredible winter weather!

Unfortunately... when is the best time to visit the Gold Coast? Is really hard to answer, because it depends....

When to visit can depend on so many things like....

  • the weather you are seeking warm, cool, stunning?
  • who is coming on the holiday and their requirements - single, couple, family, young children, older children, heat tolerant, crowd tolerant.
  • Budget - money can't buy everything you want, but it can certainly make irritations go away....
  • school holidays - can you avoid them or do you have to fit in with them?
  • specific events - boat show, Gold Coast 600 (formerly Gold Coast Indy), Magic Millions, seeing the Gold Coast Titans play at home, schoolies, Tennis, Surf Comps and Golf or forward planning for the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
  • your holidays - one thing that most northern hemisphere visitors forget is that Australia is the opposite, our winter is your summer, our summer is your winter!

My dilemma, in writing this website, has been in trying to provide as much useful information to help you make your own mind up.... but I still get asked!
