If you are flying into the Gold Coast, there are two ways to get into the area:

  • Travel through to Brisbane International Airport
  • Travel to the Gold Coast Airport (Coolangatta)

The Brisbane airport is one hour away but may be the only connection provided by some airlines. An airport train with tram connection at Helensvale Station will take you directly to Surfers Paradise.

Coolangatta is the preferred airport. Options to get to the Surfers Paradise from Coolangatta include:

  • Uber or Taxi (Uber $AU50) Taxi ($AU70)
  • Sky Bus ($38 round trip) Skybus needs to be booked one day in advance - can take you directly very close, if not exactly to selected accomodation on the Gold Coast.
  • Bus and then tram (you can get a GoCard from the airport which is the standard Gold Coast travel card for $10 which you then top up as needed or a one day unlimited pass for $10.) Check out the Transklink site for more bus and tram information and other information on the GoCard

For all your options to choose the best way for you to travel check out the Gold Coast Airport Travel Information page.
