Gold Coast Airport

Airport Car Rental

Located just south of Brisbane, the Gold Coast is a backpacker and tourist mecca and one of the most visited places in the whole of Australia. Whether you come for the famous Surfers Paradise, beautiful beaches, or some of the nearby destinations that you can easily access with a car, you’re in for a treat. These are five of the most interesting attractions in and around the Gold Coast:

  • Surfers Paradise. Not only surfing heaven, but also a hub of restaurants, nightlife, and hotels, Surfers Paradise is the busiest and most famous place on the Gold Coast. Some travelers love it, while others consider it too commercialized and crowded and look for more relaxed spots which can be found up and down the coast. Either way, if you’re in the Gold Coast, the area and its beautiful coastline deserve at least one visit so you can make up your own mind.  Surfers Paradise is also the Theme Park Capital of Australia, so attracts many visitors looking for roller coasters, movie stunt shows, wildlife and entertaining shows.
  • Lamington National Park. The nature of Queensland can be experienced not only on the beaches but also in the numerous nature reserves that surround the Gold Coast. Made up of ancient peaks, cloud forests, and the emblematic Australian bush, this popular hiking area is less than an hour’s drive southwest of Gold Coast. The national park’s hills and forests are inhabited by wildlife like parrots, wallabies, bandicoots, and platypuses (although very hard to find). If visiting the World Heritage Listed Lamington National Park has only increased your appetite for wilderness, the nature preserve is bordered by Springbrook and Border Ranges National Parks. Here you’ll discover more lush ancient rainforest and thundering waterfalls. 
  • Gold Coast Hinterland. A large territory that includes Lamington National Park, Gold Coast Hinterland is an area that gets fewer visitors than the coastal parts but hides a surprising number of interesting locations. These include Tamborine Mountain and the majestic views from the top of it, Numinbah Valley, and a number of lakes, wineries, and mountain villages. Many Australians think that this area offers some of the most scenic drives in the country. Most of the places that make up the hinterland are no more than an hour's drive from Surfer's Paradise.
  • Burleigh Heads. If you’re looking for a more local beach experience away from the tourist crowds of Surfers Paradise, drive twenty minutes south to Burleigh Heads. You’ll find a great number of local restaurants and cafes and some of the best surf breaks on the Gold Coast. On the southern end is Burleigh Heads National Park, which offers a stunning hike around the headland to Tallebudgera Creek. You may even see whales offshore during the winter months. While at Tallebudgera, you can paddleboard the crystal clear waters of the creek, or enjoy the calm waters for a swim. Families especially love it here.

 

Road Trip Ideas

The Gold Coast has an idyllic location sandwiched between the stunning coastal regions of Northern NSW in the South and the Sunshine Coast in the North. Both of which are less than two hours drive. It’s the perfect region for enjoying a road trip that will highlight this area's stunning natural beauty, but also the Australian surfing culture and lifestyle. 

  • Gold Coast to Lennox Head. The Gold Coast to Lennox Head road trip is a 90-minute scenic drive, but you can turn that into a day or even longer, as it’s filled with stunning beaches, great surf, coastal hikes, and small towns you’ll want to get lost in. Highlights include the sleepy towns of Kingscliff and Lennox Head, and one of Australia’s most popular towns, Byron Bay. It’s on a crystal bed AND has been a sacred healing ground for over 20,000 years. This traditional place for ceremony, dancing circles, birthing rituals, spiritual respite and dreaming has a certain kind of magic to it..include , but you will want to stop off at several locations along the way.
  • Gold Coast to Noosa. This stunning two-and-a-half-hour drive will take you through many of the Sunshine Coast’s coastal communities. Expect a more laid-back vibe to the beaches of the Gold Coast. This area also has a pristine hinterland region worth exploring, including the Glass House Mountains which you’ll see rising up from the highway.  In this area, you’ll find Steve Irwin’s Australia Zoo, the most famous zoo in Australia. Like Byron Bay in the South, Noosa is one of Australia’s most popular coastal destinations. On the edge of the small village is the Noosa National Park filled with trails, great surf breaks, and, if you’re lucky, you may spot koalas in the trees.
  • Fraser Island. If you want to go off-road and do some serious beach driving whilst exploring shipwrecks, pristine lakes, stunning forest, and dodging wild dingos, head over to Fraser for some of the best 4-wheel driving in the country. 75 Mile Beach on Fraser Island is classified as a part of the Bruce Highway? And that Fraser Island is the largest sand island in the world? You can also drive along the Great Beach Drive just north of Noosa on the way there.  Fraser Island is about a five hour drive north of the Gold Coast. 
  • Dreamworld. Australia’s biggest theme park, Dreamworld has more than 40 different attractions including several thrill rides, one of the world’s fastest drop towers, and even a flying theater. Dreamworld is located just off the M1 highway, about a 30-minute drive north of downtown Gold Coast. Dreamworld is located right next to WhiteWater World, a large water park that’s open from September to April.

We had an awesome time at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, heading straight there from the airport on our way to Broadbeach. Highly recommend, especially with kids! Broadbeach was a really nice place to stay, to the point where it might make one consider moving... Parks, awesome playground, beach, coffee spots, shops, one of Australia's biggest shopping malls - it was great. The accommodation we stayed in isn't worth commenting here about, but I will say that choosing somewhere with a pool is definitely a good option!

Took grandchildren to Paradise Resort and there were more activities than we were able to use. Loved it. Walked o to Surfers a number of times, shopped at Pacific Fair and the outket mall Harbourtown. Also visited sister who lives on Gold Coast. Was good being able to get around. I've been over many times and have pretty much already seen the sights. This trip was especially for my granddaughters, shopping, and my wee greatgrandsons, having a blast in the waterpark at Paradise Resort. Oh wecdid go to Tallebudgeree Beach the Clearest in Australia. That was lovely. The resort had a reptile show so the kids saw some lizards, turtles and snakes.

Started off with 5 nights at SeaWorld, we love this place. Had a great time at the theme parks. Then to relax a bit went to Coolum for 4 nights and the accommodation was awesome. Location was perfect, and the whole apartment was amazing. Great trip

Gold Coast & Hervey Bay to visit relatives. Then onto a lovely & quiet beach side town called Bagara (near Bundaberg) Stopped at Coolum Beach on the way back to the Goldie and will be going back there for sure! The car was great too!

All the places were lovely. Can't really fault anything on our whole trip. Apart from the wax museum & sea world they were a waste of money 😄

I stayed at a Motel across the road from Coolangatta Airport, so it was within walking distance, and so handy to return the car. Because my flight was early morning, I returned the car the day before, took me about 7 minutes to walk back to the Motel, and only 7 minutes to walk to the Airport in the morning.

Driving in Gold Coast is stress free. Drivers lookout for each other and would not hesitate to give way. But remember to keep to yr speed limit.
