Australian Gold Coast in May
May is the last month of Autumn and is a popular time to visit the Gold Coast for our overseas visitors.
The weather in the Gold Coast during May can be glorious. Warm during the day and often very little wind. This photo of boats on the broadwater was taken in the middle of May. A great time to be out on the water!
You can enjoy all the Gold Coast has to offer this month and usually a little quieter at the theme parks and attractions, so shorter queues! No whale watching this month though, but they'll be here by next month.
As well as the amazing weather in May there are no school holidays. Labour Day falls on the first Monday in May creating a long weekend. In addition, there are great Gold Coast events such as the Sanctuary Cove Boat Show, Gold Coast Fashion Week and Blues on Broadbeach.
All GREAT excuses to make a trip the Gold Coast in May.
The boat show is
a fantastic opportunity to look at the boats and accessories. Or you can just get out on or in
the water with options such as kayak, snorkel, scuba, learn to surf or jet-ski, take one of the many cruise options, or try your hand at deep sea fishing.
And, if you are after open water the Pacific Ocean is calling just
through the Gold Coast
you’ve finished on the water there’ll be plenty of time
to check out some
Blues at Broadbeach, galleries on Mount Tamborine or just chilling on one of the fabulous Gold Coast beaches!
Although the weather is turning a little cooler, it is still not cold at all. Gold Coast water theme parks can still be enjoyed at this time of the year and I find it is good time to visit our theme parks and not too crowded on weekdays.
So many great reasons to visit this month! All the information below is updated each year to keep it current. I recommend, if you haven't already, that you get a copy of my planning cheat sheets. Use the information on this page to fill them in, to help plan your holiday.
