Public Transport and How to Get Around

Cycling

One of the best ways to get around the city is with a bike. Gold Coast has more than 600 kilometres of bike paths that connect to public transport routes and various neighbourhoods. The city has a bike share program, making it an affordable way to explore and reduce your carbon footprint at the same time. There are more than 30 bike stations around Gold Coast, and you can download the Mobike App for up to date prices and a location map.

 

Bus

The city's buses aren't the fastest way to get around. You'll need to factor in buffer time for delays, and it's not the best option if you're trying to stick to a tight schedule. TransLink is the main bus operator, and Surfside Buslines will connect you to the south and north of the Gold Coast. If you're staying out late, you can take the after-midnight bus that's run by NightLink.

 

Taxi

Once your flights to Gold Coast land at the airport, the best way to get to your hotel is with a taxi. The Gold Coast Cabs are easy to spot outside the arrivals terminal and also operate all over the city. A one-way trip from Gold Coast Airport (OOL) to Surfers Paradise will cost $55. Another alternative is the ride-sharing app, Uber.

 

Car Rental

If you want more freedom getting around Gold Coast or you have a few day trips planned while travelling on flights to Gold Coast, it's best to hire a car. You can book one ahead of time on Webjet, rent one from Gold Coast Airport (OOL) or pick up a set of wheels at one of the kiosks in the city.

 

SkyBus Gold Coast Airport Shuttle

The Gold Coast Airport shuttle meets all flights to Gold Coast landing at the airport and operates seven days a week. It's one of the most affordable transportation options from Gold Coast Airport (OOL) and runs between Tweed Heads and Main Beach.

 

The Best Time to Visit

To find, book and travel on cheap flights to Gold Coast, the best time to visit the Gold Coast is in the shoulder months of April and May. The weather is perfect (not too hot and not too cold) and the lack of school holidays means affordable return flights to Gold Coast are easy to find.

High season for the city is in November and December. During those two months, teenagers flock on flights to Gold Coast for Schoolies Week as well as the end-of-year and Christmas holidays. Return flights to Gold Coast for this period skyrocket as it's one of Australia's top family destinations. You'll need to book your accommodation for a few months in advance if you want to stay at your first choice hotel. If you don't mind the crowds, the weather is perfect for lazy days at the beach or water sports.

October is also a more expensive month to travel on flights to Gold Coast. The city hosts the annual Coast Coast 600 V8 racing festival, and it draws thousands of people, driving up prices for airfare to Gold Coast.

 

How Much Time to Spend in Gold Coast

When planning your flights to Gold Coast, how much time you spend here depends on if you're travelling solo or with a group. For families, one week is more than enough time to hit up all the theme parks and relax at the beach.

If you're travelling by yourself or with a group of friends, it's easy to extend your trip by two or three weeks. You can use the extra time in your itinerary to fully explore Surfers Paradise as well as visit the nearby wineries, beaches and day trips to Stradbroke Island or Byron Bay.

It's easy to book tickets to Gold Coast and fill up a 10-day itinerary with a good balance of activities and days soaking up the sunshine on the beach.
