"From Brisbane there are buses..." Public Transport. Tip by Shar
Public Transport., Gold Coast: 27 reviews and 15 photos
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.
