April is an excellent time to visit the Gold Coast.
You can expect clear, sunny skies and lower humidity on most days with occasional rain showers and cooler temperatures in the evening. It’s best to carry an umbrella or rain jacket and a light jumper or jacket for the evenings or visits to the rainforest.
April is perfect for visiting the hinterland rainforests and theme parks.
Public holidays including Easter and Anzac Day (25 April) can bring an increase in visitors.
