Australian Gold Coast Events July
You will see surfers all year round at the Gold Coast and July is no exception. Just because it is a Winter month, the Gold Coast's beaches are still welcoming.
July on the Gold Coast can be stunning or cold!
Us locals feel the cold more than visitors!

It's a bit of a quiet month for Gold Coast events during July, however we have the annual Gold Coast Marathon usually on the first weekend of the month. This year we also have a fantastic sounding VIVA Elvis, scroll down to read more about this event.
The early part of July usually co-incides with Australian Mid Year school holidays. There are NO public holidays in July in the Gold Coast.
July is a popular time for visitors from overseas. In particular those from the VERY HOT middle eastern countries, who love to visit the Gold Coast for some rest from the heat. Many local restaurants put on special Halal menus during this time of the year.
Most of the attractions in Gold Coast, especially the theme parks, have facilities to enable visitors from the middle eastern countries to eat and observe their traditions without too much difficulty.
I often get asked questions about going to the beaches and swimming in Gold Coast in June or July or whether the Gold Coast water parks are open in July.
In short the answer is a resounding YES. The Gold Coast facilities are designed to be used year round and there are often some amazing days where you would be hard put to say it was winter!
As a family we often go to the beaches during the winter months, we pick our times and may not stay quite as long as during the hot summer days but we still enjoy swimming in the surf, walking along the beaches and making sandcastles!
As well as these events, there are events, markets and shows that run throughout the year. You can find more information through these links:
