5 Reasons to Visit the Gold Coast in May

5 Reasons to Visit the Gold Coast in May

Australia’s Gold Coast is a hot holiday destination all year round. While we receive visitors in every month of the year, many people choose May for their Gold Coast holiday.

As a Gold Coast accommodation provider, I know just why we receive so many guests in May. Continue reading this post as I list 5 reasons why you should consider visiting the Gold Coast in May. Hopefully, after you’ve read through, you’ll agree with me and consider planning a visit too!

1. There are no school holidays

One reason why our guests choose May for their Gold Coast holiday is because there are no school holidays. In May, the Gold Coast is much quieter than the other months of the year.

This means, by choosing May for your holiday, you’ll experience the Gold Coast at its best. There are fewer tourists and shorter lines at theme parks. And with fewer children around, it’s the perfect time for a holiday with mates or with a partner.

2. The weather is starting to cool down

May marks the last month of Autumn on the Gold Coast and the weather is absolutely glorious. The days are warm and pleasant and there is little to no wind. Moreover, rainy days and storms are rare in the month of May.

The average temperature ranges from 13°C to 22°C, while the average sea temperature is 21°C. Such pleasant temperature makes May perfect for exploring the various outdoor attractions of the Gold Coast.

3. May brings some great events to the Gold Coast

If you head to the Gold Coast in May, you have some fantastic events to look forward to.

In early May, the Gold Coast is hosting the Prime Minister’s Cup – a premier horse racing event. The Blues on Broadbeach Music Festival is happening in the third week of the month. Also, the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show starts in late May. Finally, the Cooly Rocks on Festival is happening in late May to early June.

As you can see, events are held throughout the entire month. So, you’ll be able to can at least one regardless of when you choose to come.

4. There’s plenty to do on the Gold Coast in May

Thanks to the fantastic weather and various events happening around the Coast, there’s no shortage of things to do on the Gold Coast in May. It’s wonderful time to explore our theme parks including Sea World and Dreamworld. I also recommend you to visit the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and Tropical Fruit World. May is also perfect for exploring Mt. Tambourine and its surroundings. Apart from these theme parks and attractions, you can also enjoy playing Golf and watch horse racing.

There are also many entertainment events you can look forward to in May. Blues at Broadbeach, Dracula’s Dinner & Show and live entertainment at Jupiter’s Casino are some of my top picks you can consider. The list goes on and on!

5. Accommodation is much cheaper!
