Peak season:
Peak season runs between October and January, and when the majority of travellers arrive on cheap flights to the Gold Coast. Famous for its theme parks, beaches, nightlife and shopping, this is a premier holiday destination for both Australians and overseas tourists. You’ll need to time your visit to avoid the busiest months, especially late November to early December when the Schoolies descend on the city. The many theme parks such as Movie World, Dreamworld and Seaworld, make the Gold Coast a family-orientated spot, so expect the prices of flight tickets and accommodation to increase over Christmas, New Years, Easter and semester breaks. Indy Week (third week of October) is also a busy period for visitors, and when cheap flights to the Gold Coast and accommodation quickly sell out.

 

Off Season

June to August is the off season but for many visitors coming from colder climes it’s still balmy enough to enjoy a dose of sunshine and swimming with temps hovering around 25C. Fewer tourists means less crowds and queues at the theme parks, and good deals on accommodation and flight tickets.

When is the best time to book a flight to Gold Coast?

You’re most likely to find the cheapest flights to the Gold Coast outside of the summer months especially from February to May, or September to early-October. At any other time, book well in advance, especially during Schoolies Week and Indy Week.
