Spring has well and truly sprung on the Gold Coast and it’s time to get out and about in the great outdoors and enjoy everything that this amazing region has to offer.
Best Spring activities on the Gold Coast include:
1. Walk along the Oceanway
The 36 kilometre journey along the Gold Coast Oceanway can be enjoyed as nine segments that make the experience easy and enjoyable. Check out the the timber and stainless steel distance marker posts that provide information about where you are along the Oceanway. There are great places to view the fabulous Coastline from above at lookouts and headlands along the way.
2. Soak up some Spring Sunshine on the beach
Spring is the perfect time to spend the day on one of the Gold Coast’s beautiful beaches before the UV rays are extreme. Soak up some Spring sunshine, take a stroll along the white sandy shores and take a dip in the warm sea waters, averaging between 22 to 25 degrees.
3. Learn to surf in the gentle waves
Have you always wanted to learn to surf? Springtime is the ideal time to take surfing lessons with one of the local Surf Schools. The waves are generally smaller and gentler so that you can ease your way into the surf.
4. Explore the Gold Coast Hinterland
Go for a day trip or a picnic to Springbrook National Park, Mt. Tamborine or one of the many other places around the Gold Coast Hinterland. The warm weather and clear skies make it perfect for exploring the beauty of the hinterland.
5. Watch whales & their calves frolic in the ocean
Go whale watching across various locations on the Gold Coast. Whales and their calves are spotted very frequently in and around the coast during Spring on their return trip to the Antarctic.
6. Get an adrenaline rush at the Gold Coast 600
