Gold Coast Mini Guide

The Gold Coast is synonymous with sun, sand, sea, surfing and beach bums and retirees alike are drawn to this Australian city. Indeed one of the Gold Coast’s most famous areas is known as Surfer’s Paradise which consists of about 70 kilometres of perfect sandy beaches and excellent breaks.

Gold Coast Surfers Paradise

There are even live surf cams so that dedicated surf dudes and surf chicks can check out the conditions every minute of the day.  Water sports are certainly the order of the day but be sure to always pay attention to the flags which mark where it is safe to swim. Quite a few tourists get into trouble there every year so always stay between the red and yellow flags.

The Gold Coast is located below Brisbane in the south eastern corner of the state of Queensland. Your best bet to get there from abroad is to fly into Brisbane Airport, pick up your Rhino rental car and do the hour’s drive south. If you want to enjoy the feeling of the sun on your back why not enjoy our range of car hire at Gold Coast Airport with sun roofs, or even convertible vehicles.

Half a million people live on the Gold Coast and this is also one of the most popular tourist destinations in Australia. It is a huge area and as well as Surfer’s Paradise is comprised of the districts of Tweed Heads and Coolangatta.  Coolangata has it own airport with connections to international destinations such as New Zealand as well as most of the major Australian cities. Three and a half million passengers pass through the airport every year.

Gold Coast View

The Gold Coast is thought by many to be overdeveloped and somewhat tacky, but it depends what you are looking for. This is certainly a fun place to go out with a great atmosphere and buzzing nightlife, but on the flip side there can sometimes be some drunken, unruly behaviour. Likewise it is useful to know that in November the Gold Coast is taken over by Schoolies Week when the school leavers go there to celebrate. Should you want to avoid the mayhem it is better to go between October and March!

Much of the entertainment in Gold Coast is geared towards young people having fun. Having a car will mean that you can get to the numerous theme parks which surround the area such as the Wet n’ Wild Water Park and the Warner Brothers Movieworld. There's also the international Boat Show that takes place in May each year and a triathlon to test the endurance of competitors each April. You will find a wide variety of different accommodation types there from surf shacks to mid range and more upmarket hotels as the Gold Coast continues to develop. The Gold Coast is a popular tourist destination that has so much to offer.

Latest Update from Gold Coast:
