Feel the excitement of life in the fun lane at Australia’s Gold Coast, where the sun shines on an unlimited variety of things to see and do all year round.

Watch the iconic Surf Lifesavers patrolling the beaches, tour a World Heritage listed rainforest, and peruse through outdoor markets and stylish boutiques all in a day full of lively adventure.

Enjoy the excitement of the biggest and best theme park rides, learn to surf, or dine on the freshest local produce while overlooking the vibrant colours of the Pacific Ocean. And as the sun sets over this city by the sea, cruise through the calm marinas and islands of the Broadwater as the Gold Coast shines through the night.

The Gold Coast enjoys a mild sub-tropical climate with an estimated 8 hours of sunshine, 300 days a year. Winter (June - August) on the Gold Coast is generally sunny and dry with comfortable temperatures of 11-21°C (52-70°F).
