Weather in Spring

September – November 14-27°C

Some tips from the locals
  • You can get sunburnt even on cloudy days – wear sun protection year round.
    While casual is the Gold Coast norm, some golf courses have dress codes so check when booking.
  • Gentlemen may need a jacket when fine dining, or enjoying a sophisticated evening at a club or restaurant.
  • Hinterland areas may be cooler and wetter. Take a jacket just in case and wear comfortable walking shoes.
  • Pack swim wear year round.

Delegates are strongly advised to secure appropriate travel and health insurance. Delegate registration fees do not provide any such insurance coverage. The Organising Committee and the Convention Office accept no responsibility for any loss in this regard.
