Things to do in spring season in Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sydney!


Hi I’m Shiho, Marketing and Communication Intern at Langports.

In Australia, spring starts from September, which means it’s around the corner. Today, I would like to introduce what to do in spring in Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sydney.

In Australia, spring is the best season of the year to do different activities, enjoying the fresh air & comfortable temperatures all under shiny and warm sunshine. So why not go outside and feel the lovely weather?

Here are some great activities that you can do in Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sydney in this coming spring season!


1. Feeling the beginning of Spring through the exhibition of colorful flowers.

Around Brisbane CBD, there are many parks where you will be attracted by tons of beautiful flowers, such as the gardens point at QUT and Roma Street Parklands.

2. A must-attend event, Brisbane Festival

Brisbane Festival is one of Australia’s major international arts festivals. In this festival, a thrilling program of theater shows, music, dance, circus, opera and major public events such as Sunsuper Riverfire awaits you. It will take place from 9th to 30th of September! 

In this link you can find all the events planned for this amazing festival, so have a look at the program and start planning your weekend activities!

3. Exploring Brisbane by riding a bike

The majority of the most popular sightseeing areas in the city and its outskirts are accessible by bicycle. The weather is most likely to be nice in spring in Brisbane. So you will feel refreshed while riding a bike:) You can hire a bike in the CBD from a really low price and multiple locations! Check the prices here!

4. Chilling out at South Bank Parklands and doing some activities at Kangaroo Point

Southbank has trendy cafes, restaurants along with parks and an artificial beach where you can chill out with your friends and even swim.

At Kangaroo Point, you can also do outside activities along the Brisbane River, such as kayaking, abseiling and rock-climbing. The weather should suit these outside sports!


Gold Coast   

1. Hitting up the Outdoor Cinemas at Ben & Jerry’s Openair Cinema 

As the temperatures at night are getting warmer, attending the outdoor cinemas shouldn’t be a problem :). You will feel relaxed watching a movie under the stars, so this is a perfect thing to do! It will happen from October to November!

2. Learning to Surf  

Do you want to be a surfer? Once the temperatures increase, it is a good time to go to the beach and start to learn how to surf!

Please note that at Langports Sydney, we offer the Winter Surf Camp activity, where you can learn to surf! If you are in Sydney, please talk to Chris to join our next surf camp:)  


3. Embarking on Nature Adventures

Spring is the best season for discovering nature adventures from the sea to the mountains.

As the temperatures are up, the humpback whales start their lengthy migration home again and you can get the chance to see them! All our schools organise whale watching activities. Check our activities calendars at our three schools and talk to our Recreation Officers to secure your place for the next Whale Watching Activity!

Going camping also is a great option for weekend adventures on the Gold Coast! Here are some nice camping areas around the city:

4. Stopping by the local organic farms

The spring’s sunshine on the Gold Coast makes vegetables, fruits and herbs fresher. It is an ideal activity in spring to pop in and get premium-graded fresh products. Here are some information about the local organic farms that you might want to visit!
