Although considered winter, June is an excellent time to visit the Gold Coast.
You can expect sunny blue skies, low humidity and cooler temperatures with the occasional rain shower. It’s best to carry a light jumper or jacket for the evenings or visits to the rainforest. Nights can be cold.
June marks the beginning of whale watching season. Whale watching tour boats start heading out to find the whales from early June until the end of October.
The cooler weather in June is also perfect for visiting the hinterland rainforests and theme parks.
The Queen’s Birthday in late June heralds more school holidays, which makes June a popular time for visitors from the cooler southern states of Australia and New Zealand.
