The best time to visit the Gold Coast is certainly in February, with lots of jam-packed activities, and beautiful hot weather. Here are 6 reasons to visit the beautiful Gold Coast in February. Make sure you do not miss out on #5!

#1. The Weather:

February boasts the most perfect weather on the Gold Coast – clear blue skies, long hot summer days, and a beautiful south easterly breeze from the sea. The average temperatures range from 20 degrees Celsius to 28 degrees Celsius, so the weather is very warm and humid. The average sea temperatures hover around 25 degrees Celsius.

You can expect clear blue skies and the occasional rain in February. If you are lucky, you may just get a tropical storm in the evening and watch the beautiful Gold Coast thunderstorm performance. In February on the Gold Coast, sunrise is normally around 5.15am and sunsets around 6.30pm. How’s that for long summer days!

In February, head to the beach for a swim for a perfect respite from the heat, or participate in water activities like jet skiing or boating. The Gold Coast is home to over 70 km of golden beaches, plenty of space to find your own slice of golden sand paradise.

#2. What to pack:

Packing for your February Gold Coast holiday is exciting, it means you’re nearly on holiday! Good news, you’ll only need to pack light – board shorts, bikinis, thongs. In February, it is never too casual.

You will need your swimmers to enjoy the beautiful Gold Coast beach, lots of sunscreen, and a hat to protect you from the sunshine. Are you coming for a special occasion or ready to party? Bring a nice pair of evening clothes to wear along with a very light jacket – there’s plenty of beautiful restaurants and night life in the area!

#3. February Days:

February is not as hectic as January. It is still very much summer time, but most school children have headed back to school after their long summer break. This means no long queues or crowds at the popular theme parks and other Gold Coast attractions. This makes February one of the best times to visit the Gold Coast for a holiday. Enjoy a late summer holiday without worrying about kids overtaking the Gold Coast.

#4. Plenty to do:

There’s plenty to do on the Gold Coast in February – we are nicknamed Australia’s playground for a good reason.

Thanks to the brilliant weather, February is the best time to explore the hinterland and rainforests. How about a quick winery tour to taste the local offerings? The Hinterland is a 45 minute drive from Surfers Paradise, we recommend getting a hire car and making use of Holiday Holiday’s free car parking.

Visiting Burleigh Heads should be on the itinerary for families and couples alike, if you have time we would also recommend visiting SeaWorld and then heading out to a beautiful dinner. With the family, buy the Warner Bros’ theme park tickets so you can visit Movie World, Sea World and Wet ‘n Wild during your stay.

More of a kick back and relax on your holiday type person? We don’t blame you, start your day slowly with breakfast in your self-contained apartment, head down to the pool at your Gold Coast resort and maybe even treat yourself to a pampa day at the spa.

#5. Events on in February on the Gold Coast:

February on the Gold Coast is very exciting and jam packed with events, there’s something for everyone.
