Hotel choices

by t_jsiddique

Hi there, I am planning to travel to Gold Coast during July 28-31 2010, and am looking for recommendations on hotels. I will be visiting Warner Brother Movie World and Sea World so proximity to these locations will help. Are there any packages that combined hotel + theme park(s) tickets + flight from Sydney. Also, how much does a taxi ride cost from Gold Coast airport to suggested hotel. Is there some other means of transport available at the airport.

Appreciate your help.

MOvie World & Sea World are quite away apart. I can't recommend Hotels as I live not far away and have no need to stay, but Seaworld always has packages, so check their site.
To get to Movie World, you just catch a local surfide bus,this website has the timetables

and the Airport has a shuttle service that I know of....
there may be others.

Plenty of expensive hotels near Seaworld, or just a short distance away, lots of cheaper ones.

There are no hotels close to Movie World but a host of places in Surfers Paradise and towards Seaworld. It will depend upon your budget -everything from 0 - 5 star. Check out and

SeaWorld resort always has package tours available and as they are associated with Movie World you may find something to suit. Also log on to MyFun website - - they also have offers of packages now and again. As for packages with airlines check out Jetstar and Virgin - they may have deals as well, so too Tiger Airlines. Is this school holiday time - may be difficult if it is.

My last taxi fare to the coast from home (a few K's from GC Airport) was $50.00 - maybe a bit more these days you are talking about 30 k's. There are shuttles from the airport though and these are on the airport site - mind you your hotel may also have a shuttle bus.

The Gold Coast has a good public bus system that runs up and down the coast and to the theme parks, Movie World etc etc. Your hotel does not have to be close to theme parks , but make certain it is close to the coast and confirm transport with hotel prior to booking.

Travel Tips for Gold Coast

The best and worst of Gold Coast

by ssquah

Three things that impressed me most:
1. An efficient transport system
2. Clean public toilets
3. Strangers can be nice and polite to one another

Three things that impressed me least:
1. Tourists who are angels during the day can turn into devils at night (I've seen how the people behaved at night)
2. Over-priced souvenirs, especially at Surfer's Paradise (far cheaper elsewhere)
3. A modern city that lacks a cultural soul (the place is all about the beaches and the pubs/night-life)

Dune Care

by aussirose

Ran out of travelogue space so I decided to make dune care a local custom. South of the Gold Coast has lovely beaches. The reason why they are so lovely is because they are protected by leaving the natural dunes in tact. Hubby was involved in caring for the coastline and enhancing it. He supervised 3 projects to take care of our natural flora and fauna, removing the spreading weeds and restoring the natural environment for all us tourists to enjoy.

The only way to this island is by Boat.
We took the 11.45am - 4.30pm cruise to the Island with Tall ship Island Adventures.

A Catamaran takes you to the Island. On the way you pass Sovereign Island, where Million dollars homes are located. As you near Sth Stradbroke, which is on you right hand side, keep your eye out for Wallabies on the beach, we saw a couple.

Here, you land at the dock. There is a bbq lunch, extra $15 (2009) set in a nice tropical setting. There is live entertainment by singing. The Wallabies seem to know when food is around, a few of them came around the tables.

FREE USE OF......................Paddle Boats, Canoes, Hobie Cats, Pool Table, Beach Volley Ball.

There are over optional things to do, NOT INCLUDED IN THE PRICE..........
4wd, sand duning, parasailing, jet ski hire, doofer rides, seaplane & more.

The beach is nice, and there was hardly any people here, so you had a lot of it to yourself.

You can go back to Mariners cove by Catamaran or Yacht.

You can do the afternoon trip for $58,


Combine a Whale cruise when in season, in the morning and do the island in the afternoon for $99.

Check for offers, as THEY ARE OFTEN DISCOUNTED.

Departs from Mariner's Cove, Opposite the Sheraton Hotel on Seaworld Blvde.

Gold Coast Bus Map

by marki

Although its often easier to drive, the bus service operated by Surfside for Translink does provide a reasonably comprehensive service. Services along the Gold Coast Highway are frequent, however many routes elsewhere operate hourly or half hourly at best. Local buses are an inexpensive way to get to the Airport, theme parks, attractions and to connect with train services to Brisbane. See for timetables.

There is no current official map of routes. Here is a current unoffical map (made by myself) of bus routes on the Gold Coast (divided into north and south part for viewing). A larger and more printable version is available at the website below.

Fresh cakes and bread

by robertgaz about Main Beach Bakery

The Main Beach Bakery is right on the waterfront across the road from the beach in Coolangatta. Here you can buy freshly made cakes with a hot perculated coffee.

They also make frsh lunches to order with a good choice of breads or rolls with crisp salads and various cold meats.
