Why not book a whale watching adventure? Winter is peak season for whale watching and with our beautiful winter weather a boat trip to see these creatures breaching and migrating is the perfect day out; just remember some ginger if you get a little seasick.
Check out the Gold Coast City Council’s website for all the free community events available across the Gold Coast; one thing to note is we LOVE our fireworks, such as Seafire. Seafire is an event that displays the very best in pyrotechnics, where the best seat in the house is Surfers beach. Take a seat and settle in for a fireworks extravaganza!
If you’re a fan of hiking and exploring, there are so many tracks and trails that are much more enjoyable once the soaring summer temperatures pass. If you are a die-hard runner, our Gold Coast Marathon is a great course to run, with plenty of sea views, and offshore breezes, you can set yourself a real challenge; after-all, they say summer bodies are made in winter.
With the weather being so mild, a trip to the beach can still be fun, and a dip in the ocean is a great way to shake off those winter cobwebs.
