Looking for all weather activities for the Gold Coast?
Even when it is raining in paradise there is still plenty to do. Don't let a bit of bad weather put you off or dampen your holiday spirits. Go on get out there and try something different!
This is one of those ideas pages. The rest is up to you!
I've highlighted the attractions around the Gold Coast that are suitable in most weather conditions.
I have a separate page for all weather activities in Surfers Paradise as there are many indoor attractions either in or close to Surfers.
Another great source of things to do when it is raining is the rainy day activities guide which will point you in the direction of other things to do on wet days.
Consider this somewhere to start if you are looking for some all weather attractions. I am sure you can find more, but this should give you the idea of what to do if you don't want to get rained on, or if you are looking for a bit of respite from the heat and humidity!
