Car Hire Coolangatta/Gold Coast Airport
Gold Coast Airport (otherwise known as Coolangatta Airport) is a domestic and international airport at the southern end of the Gold Coast. It lies 100 km south of Brisbane and 25 km south of Surfers Paradise, in the suburb of Bilinga on the Gold Coast. The runway itself extends across five suburbs of twin cities across the state border of Queensland and New South Wales, which operate in two different time zones during summer. Gold Coast Airport is Australia's sixth-busiest airport and the country's third-fastest growing airport.
About the Gold Coast
The Gold Coast is the kind of fantasy land we're more accustomed to seeing in Australian soaps, a glitter place of sandy beaches, endless sunshine, and the best surfing in Australia. When you tire of the exceptional waves at Burleigh Heads, Currumbin and Kirra, descend on the hyper bars, clubs, and theme parks behind the beach.
The party capital is Surfers Paradise, where fun is taken so seriously you'll likely find it more exhausting than the waves. Things become a lot calmer the further south you go, however. Think of elegant Broadbeach, charming Burleigh Heads, and laid-back Coolangatta. Beyond the beach, you'll find rainforests, mountain lodges, and waterfalls in the fertile subtropics of Lamington and Springbrook National Parks.
