Gold Coast, Queensland

*Queensland's Gold Coast was severely damaged by Cyclone Yasi in early 2011, and though much of the area has been restored, some resorts have yet to re-open. Check with your travel agent or tour operator before travelling to the Gold Coast.

Australia's Gold Coast stretches south from Queensland's capital, Brisbane, along 45 miles (70km) of coastline into northern New South Wales. The stunning array of beaches along this coast are a major drawcard, and where once only the surf graced the shoreline today there is a plethora of high-rise accommodation, giant theme parks, exotic nightlife and countless restaurants. The sun shines here 300 days out of the year, and the beach resort towns with their alluring names all offer soft golden sand, rolling waves and the chance to gain a perfect suntan.

The disastrous floods of January 2011 did significant damage to beachfront infrastructure, however the area is recovering. An estimated 86% of the roads are open and tourists have begun to return. However, check with your hotel or travel agent before visiting the Gold Coast.

Information & Facts

Climate

The Gold Coast generally enjoys a warm, subtropical climate all year round with temperatures seldom dropping below 68F (20C). During the summer months between November and May the area experiences daily temperatures exceeding 86F (30C) with afternoon showers. Cyclones and flooding also occur during this period. The rain abates from June to October and the days are still warm, although a pullover might be required on some evenings. The Gold Coast enjoys 300 days of sunshine a year, with two distinct seasons. The wet season occurs in the summer months, the rainfall being an upshot of the high temperatures and tropical humidity and the dry season occurs from June to October, providing the Gold Coast with consistent weather and pleasant temperatures.

Language

English is the official language of Australia.

Money

The Australian Dollar (AUD) is divided into 100 cents. Banks and bureaux de change exchange most foreign currencies. Travellers cheques are also welcome everywhere, but banks take a small commission and it is better to take cheques in major currencies (e.g. US dollars or Euros) to avoid additional charges. Credit cards are widely accepted and ATMs are freely available throughout the country. Banking hours are generally 9.30am to 4pm Monday to Thursday, and 9.30am to 5pm on Friday, but some banks offer extended hours and some are open on Saturday mornings.
