Why visit Gold Coast
The beaches of the Gold Coast offer a summer like no other with stunning white sands and near perfect swells for surfing and swimming. There are so many iconic landmarks and attractions that attract millions of people from all over the world seeking to catch the thrills. It's also the perfect place to join the party thanks to the vibrant nightlife full of fun at nightclubs, bars and pubs which are mostly located within a short distance to one another.
When to visit Gold Coast
When you combine temperature, events, school holidays, pricing and more, it's our recommendation that the April to May period is the best time of year to visit the Gold Coast. During this time the temperature will still be warm but not scorching and the beaches will not be as crowded. But if you want the authentic Gold Coast experience, the summer months (December to February) will guarantee temperatures in the high twenties and sunshine for the most part.
Getting around Gold Coast
The Gold Coast is serviced by trains, buses, taxis and ferries, along with plenty of self-drive options to help you get around. For a more slow and scenic view, the tram service can take you from Helensvale all the way to Broadbeach South. Just make sure you have a Go concession card to save on fares.
