Australia’s Gold Coast is welcoming in winter with a burst of summer weather

Where did autumn go? This weekend marks the beginning of Australia’s winter season when temperatures are supposed to be dropping towards their lowest point of the year and people pack their bags and head to the snowfields. But, here on the Gold Coast we are still enjoying beautiful weather with bright sunny days and clear blue skies. Temperatures are still rising to the high-twenties and low-thirties during the day and the sea temperature is still warm enough to entice swimmers to brave the surf. No wonder we all forget that winter is upon us.

Southern Australia too is enjoying unseasonal temperatures but not on the scale of sunny Queensland. A quick check of the temperatures around the country today showed that most of southern Australia was overcast with temperatures in the low teens, whereas here in Queensland we are heading for a top of 27⁰C.

So if your snow-ski holiday is looking decidedly uncertain because of lack of snow this year, why not head to sunny Queensland and water-ski instead? Here in Queensland – and especially on Queensland’s Gold Coast we are ready to holiday all year round.
