About the late transfer I really don't know if they have these transfers so late at night...I think the service is from 04:00 until 23:30.
You probably would have to catch a taxi

What are the ages of your kids? In my opinion, Movieworld is better than Dreamworld, if I was you I'd start with the worst. Last time I've been to Gold Coast they had a shuttle bus to Harbourtown Outlet from Surfers Paradise...don't know now, but don't expect too much, you'll find some good deals, but in general is not worth.

When buying tickets to the theme parks you can also buy the transportation...of course will be more expensive than catching a regular bus, but as you're with kids, I think is better than a crowded bus.

Hi there, No reason why it shouldn't be safe as Coachtrans should drop you off at your accommodation door. Buy a three theme park pass $149.95,(at the Moment) cheaper than individually.It includes wet'n'wild water park so may not be suitable, but there is a two park pass for movie world & dreamworld. I think Seaworld you will have to buy seperately, this park is going towards more animals as well as rides, and is excellent. It doesn't matter what order you do it in. Movie world, about Movies and fun, Dreamworld, fun & tigers, Seaworld, polar bears, sharks, aquariums & fun. I have transport info on my gold coast page. Tourist information centres are very helpful, so, have a great holiday!

Travel Tips for Gold Coast

Ride a bike up the Currumbin...

by stsober

Ride a bike up the Currumbin Valley to the natural rock pools - but watch out for the eels in the water. They can give your big toe a nip. Being in love, standing on the tallest building, wondering just how huge the ocean and the world is - because when you stand so high up on the ground, it feels like you should be able to see the other side of the world. Oh, and hot sea breezes comforting and slightly salty taste blowing straight in off the ocean. Its totally unreal.

Slip Slop Slap

by dandeelionz

Slip on a shirt, slop on some sunscreen and slap on a hat!! Have these items with you all the time and drink plenty of water. It is important to keep hydrated in this climate. If it an overcast day & you dont think that you will burn....think again!! The sun is very strong here.

The Gold Coast Hinterland! ...

by timtrina

The Gold Coast Hinterland! Most visitors to the coast miss the opportunity to visit our beautiful rainforests. You can choose between 2 different areas - Springbrook (take the Mudgeeraba exit) or Mount Tambourine (Oxenford exit). Mount Tambourine has markets on Sundays. Be warned though - both are a very steep drive to the top of the mountains!

From Brisbane there are buses...

by Shar

From Brisbane there are buses (about $14) or trains ($5 on weekends). Its about a 45 minute drive by car and same by train. Buses fart around as usual and take longer. Flights can land in Coolangatta and there are shuttle buses up to Surfers Paradise or catch the regular bus system on the highway just outside the airport. Though Coolangatta is my favourite beach (and if you drown - I may just try to save you!!), so stick around for a bit. If you land in Brissy and decide to head straight down the coast (tut tut) there are shuttle buses from their to Surfers for about $22.
The Gold Coast (well parts you'll be visiting anyways)runs along the first 3 streets from the beach really. A bus runs up and down the coast (all the way to the Tweed) 24 hours a day ad I think it costs up to $3 - depending on how far - not sure.? Walk the beach, ride a bike or rollerbalde (there are bikeways running along alot of the beach). Car rental is about $35 a day an dyou can get some cute topless cars and minibubble things. Heaps of tourist go the scooter option, though unless you have good insurance and strong knees I'd avoid them - somehow they just attract accidents.

Sea World

by robertgaz

Sea World is a theme park for the whole family with marine life attractions, wild rides and entertaining shows.

Sea World is also committed to educating visitors and playing an active role in Australian marine research and rescue.

Shark Bay is the world's largest man made lagoon for sharks and you can see Australia's only Polar bears in their home at the Polar Bear Shores.

Step back in time into the 1960s at the Waterski WipeOut which is an energetic show set in the ‘Golden Era’ of Surfers Paradise.

General admission prices -
Adults $62.00
Children (4 - 13 years inclusive) $40.00
Pensioners $40.00

If you plan to visit Warner Bros. Movie World, Sea World or Wet'n'Wild , then a much better deal is the 3 Park Super Pass which allows you to visit any park, any day as many times as you like for 14 days.
