Discover More Than Surfers Paradise
Many people people believe that
Gold Coast = Surfers Paradise = Gold Coast
Surfers Paradise attracts much attention, however the Gold Coast is so much more than Surfers Paradise
. Use the suburb guides
to discover and guide you around this very large and diverse area.
Each suburb page is a snapshot of information.
Scroll down and you will be amazed what you will learn from travel distances to major attractions and nearest golf courses.
What Is There To Do?
How To Get Here?
How To Get Around?
Shall I hire a car
? Can I use local transport? What about coaches and transfers
? This is always such a personal decision which can be dependent upon budget, flexibility and local knowledge.
When hiring a rental car one thing is for certain, it is really hard to compare apples with apples! Everyone seems to have a different offering. Check out these car hire tips
for things to look out for before you rent a car.
Where To Stay?
Gold Coast Australia covers a large area with a diverse range of places to stay. The photo above shows some of the Gold Coast accommodation choices on the coastal strip between Main Beach, through Surfers and down towards Broadbeach and Burleigh Heads.
There are so many choices both on the coast and in the Gold Coast hinterland.
Choosing the right place will have a huge impact on your enjoyment of your holiday.
I suggest you have a look at the different areas and suburbs
, use the map
and get to know the areas.
Once you have narrowed down your areas, check out the suggested accommodation on the suburb pages. I like quality not quantity! But quality doesn't mean it is the most expensive.
I do have my personal favourites. If you are looking for a good all-rounder in the 3 to 4 star category you can't go past Stella Resorts
. They have lots of great accommodation in good locations around the Coast.
with their great selection of locations, type and under the reliable brands of Mantra
are my quick fix accommodation pick!
If you are after a big name hotel or apartments this great comparison tool
will show you how to get a great deal - all on the one page.
There is certainly plenty to choose from, so you'll have to find ways to narrow it down - but isn't that the fun of planning a holiday? It helps build the anticipation!
