Was wondering what the weather is like during end of July. Am arrving in Brisbane July 27th, just wondering what to expect. I will be staying with a friend in Miami for a bit, what is there to do? I am coming from Canada for a year and love the beaches and water.
Im not really sure about the wether at this time of year. It is winter so Brisbane might be high teens low 20's (Celcius). As for things to do in Brisbane im not exactly sure either but if you love beaches then the East Coast is the place to be. The Gold Coast is about an hours drive south east from brisbane, that has great surf and and great beaches, Byron bay is not far south of the Gold Coast in NSW and also has some very nice beaches, further north heading into the tropics is the sunshine coast and a fair bit further north is Cairns etc etc.
At the moment its in the mid 20's degree varying each day. Its mostly chilly during the early morning and when the sun goes down. But seeing that you are from Canada, you will have no problems and probably find it reasonably warm.
QLD is known for its fantastic beaches and surf, loads of places to check out. Heading north from Brisbane, sunshine coast has Maroochydore, Mooloolaba, Coolum etc. And south of Bris to the Gold Coast, Burleigh Heads, Broadbeach, surfers Paradise, just to name afew.
Take a look at www.qldbeaches.com its got all the info you need!
All the best, you will definitely have loads of fun here in QLD
Having lived in Queensland for 29 years up and down the coast, I can concur with the other posts here. Winter in Queensland is nothing to fear, especially on the coast! It really depends on what you want out of your stay, there are great spots all the way up the coast however if you are looking for populations and parties better to stick around Brisbane, Gold and Sunshine Coasts.
