visiting the Gold Coast in August?

Jump to last reply

anyone who has gone at this time?

1. good time to visit? heard it's kinda cold, can get colder if extreme temperatures arise. don't like the idea of packing much.
2. wondering if my mom would enjoy the area, cuz she's not more of a beach person. she likes to see historical stuff/be near the city cuz there's more to do?
3. how far would it take to get to the red centre/top end and great barrier reef?
4. also heard going at this time is more expensive in terms of tours/attractions?

anyone with any info would be appreciated.

thank you!
