5 Hours transit at OOL.

Is it possible to go out and do something in such a short time ?

CWS ? or a drive through a nearly beach if possible ?

Renting a car is a possibility. or can anyone suggest an alternative ?

We are a family of 5 (2 adults and 3 young children)

Suggestions are welcome

Thanks in advance

Are you transferring to a do,estic flight? If so, yes, you have time to head to the beach.

The airport is almost on the beach - take a taxi to Currumbin Vikings Surf lifesaving Club, have fun on the beach, swim between the flags, climb the rock, and maybe even have a basic meal in the surf club.

Cheers.

I'll leap to the conclusion that you are not an Australian resident.

The crucial thing is what nationality your passports are and whether you already have a visa.

There some nice beaches nearby - Currumbin is a good suggestion as it also has a very good surf club, where you could have lunch.

Just have a play with google maps & the Gold Coast website.

I'll post some links later.

Head to Coolangatta Beach by taxi. It's nearby and also has a lot of different restaurants and shops.
