While you’re here why not check out the Gold Coast Film Festival, the Australian Street Entertainment Championships or Blues on Broadbeach.

While many travel to the Gold Coast in the Summer months, they miss out on the beauty that is the coast during Winter. Yes, it’s a little cooler to locals – but there is still plenty of sunshine and warmth to soak up. The average winter temp of the Gold Coast is 21° max with a 13° min and the average water temp is a beautiful 20°. Plus it’s the perfect weather to explore the hinterland, go for a bike ride along the beach or spend the day lazing in the sunshine without the heat of summer. It really is the perfect time to travel, escape the cold and enjoy the warmth.
