Australian Gold Coast in March
March is the first month of Autumn, and it's one of my favourite times on the Gold Coast. There's still plenty of sizzling warm weather, but it is cooler and less humid than the summer months.
It's great for going to the beach. And there are so many Gold Coast beaches to choose from! Each beach has its own personality.
Lots of local surf and surf lifesaving events are held this month. You'll also find the pro-surfers in town to catch the great surf at this time of year!
If surfing is not your thing you can walk, play, laze on one of the amazing beaches.
Why not try a new beach each day!
Other great activities at this time of year are the theme parks, deep sea and reef fishing or bird watching in the rainforest. In March you can do just about everything the Gold Coast can offer, except the whales are still in Antarctica, so no whale watching this month.
Depending upon when Easter falls, there may be school holidays during March.
I particularly recommend March, for those who can travel outside school holidays. It can be an excellent choice for visitors looking for warm to hot weather. You may still get, some rain.
Outside of school holidays you will find less crowds and shorter queues at the Gold Coast attractions and theme parks.
Gold Coast in March is definitely a month when there is so much to do, so little time. So make sure you plan well!
