weather in early September

Hi all

We are from Wellington, NZ and are considering a first time trip to the Gold Coast with our three children in the first week of September. What will the weather be like then? Will it be warm enough to go to the beach? And where is the best place to stay with children? They are 3, 8 and 11.

Many thanks

Hello and welcome. The weather in September (and in general) can be very un-predictable. It is the change of season. It can be quite cool at night but generally warm and pleasant during the day. It will be warm enough for going to the beach, but swimming will be your personal choice entirely. Kids are normally a lot more tolerant of colder water! But for some it will be too cool.

There are lots of great places to stay on the Gold Coast, but if it's your first time here it would be best if you stayed somewhere central like Broadbeach or Surfers Paradise.

As you are from Wellington you will find the weather a lot warmer. As mentioned, the weather then is starting to heat up.The temp. is around 13/23 and the sea temp. is 20.

Thanks very much - would it be warmer on the sunshine coast than on the gold coast or is there not much difference?

Not much difference at all ... if you really want to be warm head up north around Cairns.

WellingtonTwilkins, I haven't stayed there, but if you haven't already done so, it's always worth checking out the reviews: tripadvisor.com.au/Hotel_Review-g658842-d257… Seems to get overall decent reviews though, which is always a positive sign! :)

Hi WellingtonTwilkins!

This thread is about weather in September and you question is about a hotel.You could be missing out on some good responses because the title of the thread is unrelated to your question.

You might like to start your own thread rather than hijack an existing thread.

Just go to the Gold Coast forum page and click on Ask a Question.

We are staying at chevron towers in surfers paradise. I'm hoping it will be okay, it has four stars but after reading a few of the reviews, some of them are a bit worrying. It was recommend by the the travel agent so we decided to go with it.
