destination guide: gold coast

getting to the gold coast from the airport

Once we land at the Gold Coast Airport (OOL), aka Coolangatta Airport, you have more than a few options for getting to your destination:

  • Gold Coast Tourist Shuttle - the shuttle will take you anywhere you need to go around Gold Coast for less than you’d pay for a taxi. It’s a simple and convenient way to get where you need to go and you can buy your tickets online.

  • Hop on a Bus - the most used bus service in Gold Coast is run by TransLink. You can book ahead and buy your tickets online, and you’ll be able to get connecting buses to pretty much anywhere in the surrounding Gold Coast area. If you’re looking at travelling outside of the Gold Coast-they do that too.

  • Take a Train - Translink also runs the train which can get you where you need to be. Check the schedule for the Gold Coast Line on their website.

  • Grab a Cab - taxis are waiting right outside of the terminal to drive you wherever you need to go. You can get more info at Gold Coast Cabs.
