Suitable Clothing, What to Wear
Easy resort wear and lightweight clothing is suitable attire for the Gold Coast's sub-tropical climate. You may need a jacket or pullover in the evening. If you're planning on doing any bushwalking through the National Parks, then a sturdy pair of comfortable hiking shoes are a must and if you're going to be spending a bit of time on the beach, then sun protective clothing, a broad brimmed hat, sunglasses and sunscreen will save you from getting too much sun - refer to the section about Gold Coast Sun and Beach Safety for more information.
