One of the most popular destinations in Australia, the Gold Coast stretches along 57 kilometres of coastline.
The Gold Coast averages 245 days of fine and sunny weather each year, and those rainy-day exceptions typically fall in the summer period (December - February).
During summer the average temperature on the Gold Coast is a pleasant 20-28°C (68-83°F). It can be humid in summer but this is usually offset by cool sea breezes.
In autumn (March - May), sunny days are followed by warm nights – making it ideal for outdoor water activities such as fishing and sailing. Autumn temperatures fall between 16-26°C (61-77°F).
Winter (June - August) on the Gold Coast is generally sunny and dry with comfortable temperatures of 11-21°C (52-70°F). Many Australians escape the cooler weather in the southern states for a holiday in Queensland at this time of year. The humidity is lower, there is less rain, but the temperature is still nice and warm.
Spring (September - November) on the Gold Coast offers sunny days followed by mild tropical evenings. September can sometimes be windy, making it great for sports such as kite-surfing, kite-boarding, windsurfing and sailing. The temperatures fall between 15-25°C (59-77°F).
