Spring is just around the corner and a great time to visit the Gold Coast. Temperatures are warming up and there’s so much to do and see!
Here’s a few suggestions for you:
Whale Watching – Right through to November is the Gold Coast whale watching season. Book an organised whale sightseeing cruise or test your luck and see if you can spot whales frolicking and breeching from the shoreline.
School Holidays – the Queensland third term school holidays usually fall in September. With the weather warming up, but not too hot, it’s a great time to organise a family getaway to the Gold Coast.
Picnics – breathe some fresh air in the great outdoors and enjoy a picnic lunch by the beach, park or perhaps in the Gold Coast hinterland. Visit the local farmers markets or the supermarket and stock up on yummy treats for a relaxed picnic – strawberries, chocolates, artisan breads, cheeses, dips, crackers, pates, sandwiches – the hardest part will be choosing what to eat!
Our self-contained apartments make it really easy to prepare your own meals or packed lunches!
Alfresco Dining – the Gold Coast boasts some amazing cafes and restaurants, many with outdoor seating for you to enjoy the Queensland climate. If you’re looking for a restaurant with a beach outlook, check out the Surf Life Saving Clubs, most offer dining areas with superb beach views!
