Getting Around the Gold Coast

Making your way around the Gold Coast is simple with well-signed streets, recognizable landmarks and plenty of public transport and parking. The best way to get the most out of a stay on the Gold Coast is by hiring a car. The traffic is fairly relaxed, albeit always thick. Surfside Buslines runs the extensive public bus networks. Purchase a GoCard for discounted and convenient travel. The Gold Coast Tourist Shuttle operates services to the theme parks. There are very cheap rates available on scooter and motorbike hire – it may be tempting, but do not ride on the footpaths and boardwalks. Hire bicycles and rollerblades to explore the coast like a local.

Attractions

The golden sand, pristine water and luscious green hinterlands of the Gold Coast offers something for everyone. Saturated with theme parks, choose from Dreamworld, Sea World, Movie World, Wet ‘n’ Wild and Whitewater World. Cuddle a koala at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and tour the park with a Segway Safari. Explore the hinterlands on horseback or enjoy an easy walk to the beautiful Purlingbrook Falls and Natural Bridge. Take a guided night tour through caves to view Australian Glow Worms or overhead with a flying fox tour at O’Reilly’s. For a cheap afternoon, picnic along the Coolangatta foreshore, take the family to Broadwater Parklands or relax on an Aquaduck tour. Thrill seekers will love the SkyPoint Climb – an adrenalin filled climb 270 metres above sea level. Wrestle with the predominantly tourist population of Surfers Paradise and ride the Vomatron, Slingshot and Flycoaster. For the best Gold Coast experience, always swim between the flags, keep hydrated and protect your skin from the blaring sun. Round off your trip testing your skills on a stand up paddle board or kayak through the extensive waterways of the Gold Coast.
