We are so blessed here on the Southern Gold Coast with sunny blue skies mostly year round and on average we enjoy about 300 days of sunshine per year!
Plan ahead with this information on temperature and rainfall – and don’t forget to pack the sunscreen.
In Summer (December – February) the average temperature is a pleasant 21 – 28.4°C (69.8 – 83.1°F). February is the wettest month (Receiving 184mm/7.2” on average), and short, tropical storms are common in the late afternoon and early evening. During summer humidity is high, roughly 69 – 75%, but this is offset by cool sea breezes.
In Autumn (March – May) sunny days are followed by cooler nights with average temperatures between 18 – 25.7°C (64.4 – 78.2°F). Water temperatures are still high enough to swim (25.2°C / 77.3°F) and it is generally less rainy than the summer months.
Winter (June – August) on the Gold Coast is generally sunny and dry with average temperatures between 12.5 – 21.5°C (54.5 – 70.7°F). The Hinterland is slightly cooler with maximum winter temperatures around 16°C (60.8°F). Clear skies and dry air average cool nights.
In Spring (September – November) sunny days are followed by mild tropical evenings and average temperatures range from 16.9 – 25.4°C (62.4 – 77.7°F). Days are dry but can be windy, especially during September.
