More about the Gold Coast…

Source: Meteorological data for the Gold Coast is based on weather statistics gathered for the 32-year period 1992 to 2024 by the Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) from the closest weather station: Gold Coast Seaway, located around 12km (7mi) from the Gold Coast CBD at the northern end of Southport Spit.

Advice on the best time to visit a particular destination is based on average local weather statistics, when the weather conditions are generally better than at other times of the year. We consider high and low temperatures, risk of rain (and thunderstorms, etc.), amount of sunshine and sea temperature. For general outdoor activities we favour clear, rainless days with a temperature range between 18°C (64°F) and 27°C (80°F); and for hot-weather activities we favour clear, rainless days with a temperature range between 24°C (75°F) and 32°C (89°F). Often, the best times to visit correspond to high season and therefore involve higher prices. Dew point temperature measures moisture content in the atmosphere: a higher dew point feels more humid, while a lower dew point feels drier.
