Just returned from touring Australia. Had to abandon a week in the Gold Coast after just one night as there was a cyclone blowing and no chance of good weather for the whole week. We were supposed to stay at the Raddisson Gold Coast from 2nd Jan - 9th Jan 08.
I was assured that this is not typical. I would love to go back and would appreciate any advise on when is the best time to go, so as not to have cyclones, rain and wind that closed all the beaches.
