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.
Swimming and Beaches in October on the Gold Coast
Will October be the right time to visit Gold coast for swimming & beaches what type of clothes shall we brings with us summer winter what? please help.
October is a spring month on the Gold Coast. The weather is usually warm, great time for the beach.
October average temperatures are 15 to 25 degrees Celsius or Centigrade (59°F to 77° Fahrenheit) with historic extremes being 5°C to 39°C (41°F to 102°F) ... So how warm will it be? I cannot say exactly, but in general it is a warm month.
The average Gold Coast sea temperature in October is around 20°C (68°F). We haven't had box jellyfish in the Gold Coast, so unless there are marine stingers, which doesn't happen a lot, you can usually swim.
We go to the beach year round and you can swim in the water even in the winter!
Like anywhere the weather can be changeable, and the best way to prepare for that is to bring layers. I also recommend something for rain, just in case. If you think you might feel the cold, make sure you have a warmer jacket or jumper for the cooler or windy days.
If you plan to go into the mountains, you will need something a little warmer as it does get cooler up there.
I am not sure how those temperatures stack up relative to where you are coming from, you may find it cooler or warmer than you are used to, so make sure you factor that in when packing your suitcases.
You might find some more useful information on my webpage about October in the Gold Coast.
