One of the main things I want to know when planning a holiday, is what the weather will be like.
That helps me decide what to pack, what to expect and what sorts of activities we can do.
Of course there are never any guarantees when it comes to weather, but at least you can be prepared.
And one of the great things about the Gold Coast is that there is always plenty to do even if it is raining! Yes, shock, horror! It does rain here sometimes, which is why we have such beautiful rainforest up in the hinterland.
