The Gold Coast has a comfortable, sub-tropical climate, which is enjoyable all year round. Temperatures average in the mid to high 20’s all year round.
The highest rainfall is recorded during the summer months of December to February. Being sub-tropical, when it rains on the Gold Coast it’s often seen that storms and clouds take a ‘dump and run’ approach, rather than drizzling rain all day. After the rain, any storm activity or grey skies tend to clear up quickly, and there’s a fast return to sunshine. It can also be quite humid, but not uncomfortably so due to sea breezes. Whilst high 20’s are the average during summer, many days are in the high 30’s and sometimes even crack the 40 degree Celsius mark.
Winter is not as humid and there is much less rainfall, the nights are certainly cooler too, but not cold dropping to the mid teens on average. It’s still a great time to visit, particular if you don’t like the really hot weather.
Spring and Autumn are favored by many, very comfortable weather day and night.
Clothing – Sunscreen is a must, along with a hat, and sunglasses for eye comfort. Lightweight clothing is most comfortable most year round with a light jacket or jumper for cooler nights in winter. One of the most important considerations on the Gold Coast is Sun Safety – learn more about sun protection at QLD Government Sun Safe site
