COVID-19 Pandemic & This Website
The COVID-19 Pandemic has had a huge impact on local Gold Coast businesses, which rely heavily on visitors from Queensland, interstate and overseas.
During this time, it is hard to keep the website fully up to date with all the changes. In the meantime here are some resources for visitors. Our main booking partners for hotels and for tours, tickets, theme parks and activities are keeping everything up to date, so please use those resources in the meantime.
Travel Information for Queensland Visitors - Queensland Tourist Safety Information - regularly updated, official website.
COVID-19 FAQ's For Activities, Tours, Cruises & Theme Park Tickets - General Ticket & Pass FAQs and COVID-19 Travel Update.
Thank you for your understanding and patience at this really difficult time.
Is coming to Gold Coast in october a good month to visit?
Is it good time to visit Gold Coast in October?
October can be a great month to visit the Gold Coast. The weather is getting warmer and there is lots to do and see.
In October there are some school holidays in the early part of the month, so it can be busy and accommodation needs to be booked to ensure you get what you want.
Later in October there is the Gold Coast 600 v8 SuperCars Race which takes over Main Beach and Surfers Paradise.
Visiting the Gold Coast during GC600 isn't a show stopper, unless you really want to stay in or near Surfers or want to go to Sea World. During the race week you will find most accommodation is booked out ahead of time and the rates are high at this time.
Unless you want to see the V8 SuperCars races, I would probably suggest you avoid that week, especially if you have younger children.
In general, I love October as the weather is warmer and you can enjoy all that the Gold Coast has to offer.
In October you can also still see the whales and there is a much higher chance of seeing the mothers and calves at this time.
With a bit of planning around the holidays I personally think that October can be a great month to visit the Gold Coast.
I hope this helps. If you have any more questions just use the comments box or you can contact me directly through my contact form.
