Coolangatta Airport: Gateway to Paradise
The Gold Coast Airport is located in the heart of Australia's favourite beach resort in Coolangatta.
If you're flying in from interstate or overseas, you can pick up your Gold Coast Airport car rental on arrival at Coolangatta. Coolangatta is the most southerly of all Gold Coast holiday destinations, located on the Queensland and New South Wales border, 102 km south of Brisbane. Gold Coast Airport car hire services include Budget, Avis, Thrifty, Hertz and Europcar. Or, alternatively, fly and then book a Brisbane car rental.
Gold Coast Airport car hire bookings are only a click away!
But if you're thinking of Coolangatta merely as checkpoint on your way to Surfers Paradise, think again. The Coolangatta area has much more to offer than a conveniently located airport. Crystal waters, gentle surf and white sands combine at Rainbow Bay and the sheltered Coolangatta beach to provide a safe haven for family fun. All of this is contrasted with the rugged headland of Point Danger. On the second Sunday of the month, market stalls line the beach-front for locals and tourists alike to browse through local handicrafts. This area is also brillaint if you wish to wet a line.
The Cabarita and Kingscliff area (above) is beginning to boom, with luxury apartments and resort areas to stay in, while you spend your days on the calmest of beaches. Salt at Kingscliff is a superb holiday destination, with a chic local bar for afternoon cocktails by the sea. It really is a divine way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
