Departing from Sydney

Sydney Airport (SYD) is also known as Mascot Airport or Kingsford Smith Airport, and is located 8km from the city centre. It is the busiest airport in Australia and consists of three terminals, with Terminal 1 the hub for international flights and Terminals 2 and 3 servicing domestic flights. A fast and reliable way to get yourself to the airport – especially during peak times – is the AirportLink train, which departs from Central, Circular Quay, and any of the city stations. Trains run approximately every ten minutes, with the journey taking less than 15 minutes. A one-way ticket is about $19. To use AirportLink, you’ll need to purchase an Opal Card. It’s easy to take a taxi or rideshare service to the airport too, but allow plenty of time if you’re travelling in the peak periods. Read more about Sydney Airport (SYD) transport options.


Where will my flight land?

The Gold Coast Airport welcomes over 6.5 million passengers annually and is one of Australia’s fastest growing airports. It’s located in a unique position, with the Queensland/New South Wales border cutting directly across its runway. Gold Coast Airport is the key aviation hub for the Gold Coast’s 57 kilometres of white sand beaches, as well as northern holiday hotspots of New South Wales, such as Byron Bay. The best way to get from Gold Coast Airport to your accommodation depends on what suits you most, and ranges from budget options like public transport, all the way up to the ultimate in service: the limousine transfer. No matter what you prefer, there are plenty of user-friendly options thanks to all the infrastructure that was put in place for the XXI Commonwealth Games in 2018. Read more about all the ways to get to and from Gold Coast Airport (OOL).


What is the weather like on the Gold Coast?

There’s rarely much to complain about when it comes to the weather on the Gold Coast. Located in South East Queensland, the region enjoys sunshine for at least 300 days of the year. This means that any time is a good time to visit the Gold Coast.


From December until February, the average temperature in the Gold Coast ranges from 21 to 28 degrees Celsius. Make like the locals and cool off by spending your time at one of the many Gold Coast beaches or water-centric theme parks. Summer storms also come in the late afternoons, giving some relief from the heat.

Appropriate clothing: Swimwear and cool clothing

Don’t forget: Sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat


Any week between March 1st and May 31st might be one of the best times to visit the Gold Coast. The temperature cools to averages of 16 to 25 degrees Celsius, but it’s still pleasant enough to go for a swim in the sea. Plus, if you avoid the two weeks of school holidays, you’ll find the beaches and attractions are less crowded compared to summer.

Appropriate clothing: Swimwear, shorts, and short-sleeve tops

Don’t forget: A towel to quickly dry off after your swim


A year on the Gold Coast can sometimes feel like one long summer. However, from June to August, the average temperatures do drop to around 12 to 22 degrees Celsius. There are some who still go into the water to catch some waves. If those temperatures are too cold for you, though, visit the Gold Coast anyway to see the whales make their annual journey south.

Appropriate clothing: Shorts or jeans and a light jumper

Don’t forget: A jacket or blanket to wrap up against any chills


Once September hits, the Gold Coast temperature increases to an average of around 14 to 25 degrees Celsius. This signals a return to the water for many locals and visitors. It’s also during the spring when Schoolies starts, bringing a lot partygoers. So if you want a quiet holiday, avoid the Gold Coast during this period.

Appropriate clothing: Swimwear, shorts, and short-sleeve tops

Don’t forget: Sunscreen
