Australian Gold Coast in February
February is our last month of Summer on the Gold Coast! And the beach is central to life and holidays. You can see Aussie icons battling it out in surf carnivals and surfing competitions.
February = Sun, Sport and Surf Carnivals
Or simply enjoy a bit of beach - and we have rather alot to choose from with beaches on the Gold Coast stretching from Coolangatta in the south right up to Main Beach and the The Spit.
Gold Coast in February is a great time to be by the beach, surf or a pool since it the weather in february is still hot and humid!
February is not as hectic as January. It is still very much summer time, but most school children have headed back to school after their long summer break. University students don't head back till the end of the month and can be seen mouching around the Gold Coast enjoying their extended break.
Gold Coasters enjoy getting out and about on the weekends during this warm summer month. You will find beaches and theme parks are busier on the weekends than during the week. On the weekends the Broadwater is a buzz with boats, houseboats and jet skis at this time of the year. It is great to get out on the water on a sunny day.
It is also a very sporting month in the Gold Coast. Apart from surf lifesaving and surf carnivals - there are often major golf competitions.
Sport and Aussies go together - so this is a great time to see some Aussie Icons.
Sport isn't the only thing you can do in the Gold Coast during February. It's a brilliant time to check out the rainforest in the hinterland.
The lush rainforest comes alive with interesting plants and animals and is a complete contrast to the hustle and bustle of the built up coast - it's also a little cooler too!
