Are you thinking of travelling to the Gold Coast? Then, it’s a good idea to know the best time to book cheap hotels on the Gold Coast, especially if you’re travelling on a shoestring budget.

As a local, I recommend visiting the region in Autumn, between May to June, when the weather is perfect for sight-seeing. During this time you can expect clear skies and fewer tourists. Because of this, hotels and other travel expenses are generally a lot cheaper when compared to summer months (November to January).

However, the cheapest time to travel and secure cheap hotels on the Gold Coast is between February and September; this is when the Gold Coast usually experiences the highest rainfall. Also, during this time, hot days are often followed by tropical storms. Although it’s the best time to hit Gold Coast beaches, not a lot of families are able travel during these months because kids are still in school.

November to the end of January is the most expensive time to book hotels on the Gold Coast. This is because families choose to visit the Gold Coast in the school holidays. Also, locals tend to take their holidays before and after Christmas.


The best time to book cheap hotels on the Gold Coast is during low season, which is from February to September.
