Gold Coast Airport Mini Guide

Gold Coast Airport is an international airport which is about ninety kilometres from Brisbane. The Airport operates all year round with domestic and international flights including flights from Sydney. You will be stunned when you arrive at Gold Coast Airport for outside the terminal is a fabulous world of beautiful beaches, a stunning cityscape, and wonderful hotels. No wonder it has been dubbed the Australian Dubai.

If you are on a tight budget, you could hire a neat and nimble car from Rhino Car Hire or if you are a little flusher there is a range of luxury cars or 4x4's for those that like a little more comfort or security. Driving along the coasts you will then be able to look out for the quieter beaches and coves down rarely travelled tracks.
