Destination Guide - Gold Coast
With more than 300 days of sun each year, the Gold Coast lives up to its name. Colourful theme parks including Sea World, Movie World, Dreamworld and Wet ‘n’ Wild pack more action into a day than you ever thought possible. For those who are interested in a slower pace, the beaches are the ideal location to kick back and enjoy the scenery.
Winter (June to August) average temperatures hover around a mild 20°C. In summer (December to February) temperatures climb to 35°C regularly.
Getting there and around
It’s easy enough to get around the heart of the Gold Coast on foot. There are good bus services and taxis. However, if you intend to visit the theme parks and go exploring the most economical option is to hire a car.
