Australian Gold Coast in November
November is our last month of Spring and things are hotting up for Summer!
Our first family holiday to the Gold Coast was in November 1997. See how the skyline has changed! And our eldest is old enough to drive a car!
One of the advantages of this time of the year is shorter queues. The Gold Coast in November is brilliant. Well at least until Schoolies week that is!!
Sneak in early in the month for a great beach holiday or do the Theme Parks and miss the crowds!
But beware! If you get your timing wrong you will be sharing it with the graduating schoolies.
It is hot, the water is warm and most of the kids are still at school.
You will almost have the amazing Gold Coast all to your self!
November is definitely right up there in terms of best family beach vacation destination at this time of the year!
You can be on the beach at 6am on a November morning if you are game to get up that early. On our first Gold Coast family holiday that was us! Up early (thanks to no daylight savings) and were gone before the crowds. It was absolutely fantastic!
Early in the month you can enjoy Melbourne Spring Racing fever. The Melbourne Cup, known as the race that stops the nation, even stops the Gold Coast for a little while.
We all enjoy dressing up, party frocks, big hats and sipping champers (sorry, sparkling wine!) whilst watching the horses. You are bound to find somewhere to watch the race. Many of the big hotels have functions or charity lunches. Charity lunches are great because you feel you are giving back!
So there are some great reasons to visit this month. All the information below is updated each year to keep it current. I recommend, if you haven't already, that you get a copy of my planning cheat sheets. Use the information on this page to fill them in, to help plan your holiday.
