Car Rental
Travel Guide

Gold Coast Airport is unique, in that its runway straddles two states of Australia; Queensland and New South Wales. This makes it an ideal place to pick up your car hire, and hit the road pronto!

Gold Coast Airport was named the Best Regional Airport Asia/Pacific in 2011. Although it is not a large airport, it  services flights from international airports such as Japan and New Zealand. With all the basic services available in the terminal building, you can grab a last minute bite to eat, or buy a magazine or book from the newsagent. The fashion shops and other stores will give you a great opportunity to purchase a little gift before you leave the airport.

Have fun exploring several scenic locations in Gold Coast

Upon arrival in the Gold Coast Airport, there are already spectacular attractions that you can check out when collecting your rental car. The obvious choice is to head north to explore the legendary Gold Coast. You have something for everyone here; 70 kms of sun, sand and surf, and 100,000 hectares of world heritage listed rainforest in the region. That's without starting on the theme parks, restaurants and nightclubs, which help to make this Australia's most popular holiday destination.

But don't overlook the immediate environment around the Airport. Tweed Heads is in New South Wales, and just 4 minutes driving time from the Gold Coast Airport. This smaller resort area still has plenty of coastline, and is ideal for families with its protected and quiet waterways. The villages at Hinterland have a vibrant arts and crafts culture. Continue heading south, and you are just under an hour's driving time to the groovy vibe of Byron Bay.

Weather tips to consider when driving around Gold Coast


Well they don't call it the Gold Coast for nothing. Summer's weather is generally perfect. You will find that most of the summer days will get up as high as the mid 30's and there will even be days when it is too hot! It is important that you have a  car rental with air conditioning for those unexpected higher temp days. You may also find that summer is also considered a storm season. You may encounter some heavy rain periods and the roads tend to have flash flooding. We urge you to never take a hire car through flooded water as this will breach the terms and conditions of your rental agreement.


Visitors in the Gold Coast will still swim in winter. While the locals think they are crazy, the weather is still quite a bit warmer in winter than a lot of places around the world. No matter what the weather is, a hire car is the best way to travel so you can decide if it is too hot or too cold. Winter days can get as low as 9 degrees.
