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.
Gold Coast is world famous for its golden shores and 300 + days of perfect weather. During your stay at “Australia’s playground,” you’ll experience beaches, high-rises, exquisite dining, sports and shopping. People travel to Gold Coast from all over the world to visit Surfers Paradise (20,000 visitors daily) and play in the sand at one or all of the 35 beaches.
Surfers Paradise is one of the most visited tourist destinations in the world with a vibrant nightlife, clubs, shopping, and an impressive skyline. It’s just what it sounds like too- paradise. The annual Quicksilver Pro Surfing Competition is held at the coast as well as the Gold Coast 600, and Indy Car races in October. It’s a hub of activity for locals and travelers with wildlife, watersports, and world famous cuisine.
Take in the View - How does a breath-taking view at 230m up in the air sound? The Gold Coast SkyPoint Observation Deck on 77th floor of the Q1 Tower is a place to eat, drink, and see the Gold Coast from up high.
Surfer’s Paradise Festival - the festival is held in April and is the place to be for wine, food, and entertainment. If you want to see all things Surfers Paradise, the festival has it all.
Catch a Wave - as the name implies, people not only come here to shop, dine, backpack, and enjoy the nightlife. They come to surf. Surfer’s Paradise has plenty of space to surf and if you get in over your head, stick your hand up and a lifesaver will be ready to dive in.
Located only 5 km from the Gold Coast airport, this seaside village offers shopping, beaches, rock pools, dive sites, surfing, whale watching, and…everything. If you want to go snorkeling or diving off of Cook Island, you can do it here. If bush walking and hiking is your thing you can visit Mt. Warning (a 2 hour hike to the top) or Mt. Cougal to explore the wildlife and take in the scenery.
People come to Gold Coast from all over the world to visit Lamington National Park. It’s a Unesco World Heritage site that’s home to gorgeous outdoor scenery and almost 200km of trails. Bring your backpack and lots of water.
Springbrook National Park is a favorite hot spot as well because it’s actually what’s left over of the Tweed Shield volcano. It’s a hikers dream with trails running through the subtropical wonderland that offers an outdoor experience you’ll never forget.
Gold Coast is famous for its more than 35 beaches. You can surf, layout, or play with the kids at any of them, just be sure to observe the boundaries and rules at each one. A few of the most frequented beaches are: Surfers Paradise Beach, Broadbeach, Main Beach, and Tallebudgeera Creek (a short drive on the coast) is great for families who want to take a dip without the business of the surf crowd.
If you have kids (or just love theme parks), Dreamworld has it all. It’s huge. You can take the kids to Wiggles World, interact with wildlife, or hop on a ride. It’s definitely a great way to spend the day. So make sure you have your theme park tickets to Australia's BIGGEST Theme Park on the Gold Coast before you fly and experience family fun, thrills rides, live shows and entertainment. You can purchase your one day, three day or seven day ticket before you fly below.
If thrill rides aren’t you’re thing, you can buy your tickets to take in the breathtaking 360’ views from the Skypoint observation deck below.

If shopping and fashion excite you, look no further than Gold Coast's fashion capital- Pacific Fair at Broadbeach. With over 200 shops to choose from as well as cafes, and a cinema, this is a relaxing way to spend your day.
You‘ll find every kind of food the world has to offer in and around Gold Coast. You can enjoy the beachside scenery at Coolangatta or visit Burleigh Heads for casual dining as they’re filled with popular restaurants. If you’re looking for something trendier, try Broadbeach (at Surf Parade and the Broadbeach Mall) or take a stroll down the esplanade at Surfers Paradise. For the fine diner, you can’t beat the scene at Marina Mirage, which is considered by many to be the Gold Coast’s most cultured dining experience.
If you want it, you can find it at Gold Coast. With several flights headed out from Melbourne and Sydney on a daily basis, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a more affordable way to get there. Bring a surf board and don’t worry about setting your alarm clock either. You’ll enjoy every second of the warm weather, nightlife, and outdoor activity. Or you could sleep in, go shopping, and experience the culture of the city. No matter what you choose to do, you’ll find low cost airfares all year round.
