Best time to visit Broadbeach
Broadbeach is known for fun in the sun, so summer (December to February) is the best time to visit Broadbeach. That being said, summer is peak travel time so prepare for crowds. The winter months are still mild with average temperatures in the high teens and low twenties. Not beach weather for most but a good time to visit to avoid crowds or for those who are sensitive to heat.
Getting around Broadbeach
Broadbeach is small and can be mostly traversed by foot. There are buses and shuttles available as a public transport option but many people will find driving the easiest if you can get your hands on a car. If you plan on using public transport, you can purchase a Go Card from most convenience stores.

Pacific Fair Shopping Centre provides the perfect outlet for some retail therapy while families and foodies alike will appreciate Broadbeach Art and Craft Markets that happen on the first and third Sunday of every month, all year round. If you hear the water beckoning, learn to surf at Broadbeach Surf School or for the experienced, carve up the many surf breaks along the endless coastline.

Fun things to do in Broadbeach
Water sports Try your hand at parasailing, jet skiing or stand up paddle boarding to make the most of the long coastline and the warm sunny days. Rental facilities are dotted along the beach but it's best to head online first to make sure you don't miss out. Whale watching The best time to see whales in Broadbeach is over the winter months (June to August) which is good news for travellers opting to go in the less crowded, cooler months. There are many whale watching charters operating around Broadbeach that will take a boat out to see these beautiful creatures. Alternatively, you can head up to a lookout with some binoculars and try your luck. There's less guarantee you'll see a whale but the view may just be worth it.
