The sixth-busiest airport in Australia for visitors, Gold Coast Airport is also known as Coolangatta Airport, and is found south of the city of Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia. One of the airport's runways is situated in such a way that it straddles two cities; in the summer months, it exists in two separate time zones!
There is much to see and do in this coastal city for sightseers and those just looking to relax, and it is recommended that visitors look into renting a car at Gold Coast Airport.
The city of Gold Coast itself is just a short drive away from the Airport, and so hiring a car at Gold Coast Airport means that you'll have more time to see more of the city. The city is famous for its film productions, and has been the location of a number of blockbuster films, from the Scooby Doo franchise to Australia's Big Brother.
A great deal of the art scene in this region is centred on the Arts Centre Gold Coast which contains theatres, cinemas and venue space, and has a programme of activity all year round.
The centre of the city, for tourists, is an area known as Surfers Paradise, or just ‘Surfers' by locals. It contains the Q1, which is the world's fifth-tallest residential structure. As the name suggests, Surfers Paradise is the perfect place in Gold Coast to go surfing; it has a great coastal promenade which sits next to an iconic skyline packed with tall high-rise buildings which make it one of the most recognisable parts of the city. The area has a number of events which run each year, from the Schoolies festival to the Surfers Paradise festival.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
