You like gold. You like coasts. What do you get when you put the two of them together? No, not another Pirates of the Caribbean movie. You get Gold Coast, which sits on the eastern shores of Queensland and is just waiting for you to visit.
Seriously, this place has everything. Fantastic surfing. Crazy outdoor adventures. The wild beauty of Lamington National Park. You can see it all, but probably not on foot. Pick up a Gold Coast car rental from Wotif and set out for good times today.
Traveller, start your engine and head for Surfers Paradise, about 11km from the CBD. You can surf here, of course (you’re no grommet!), or you can make use of the awesome boot on your Gold Coast car hire and do some shopping at the beachfront markets. Stop by on weekend evenings and find that perfect gift for Mum. Or us. We like souvenirs, too!
Need more beachfront beauty? Zip down the Gold Coast Highway and stop in at the places that interest you. Hang out at Main Beach for a while—ride a jet-ski, splash around in the shallows or just relax on the sand.
Here’s a secret: Your Gold Coast accommodation (along with the rest of civilisation) will keep. So put on some hiking shoes and cruise some 50km west to Lamington National Park. Mate, this place is fantastic. Rainforests, waterfalls and rare birds…what more do you need?
If you’re not afraid of heights, check out the Tree Top Walk and take some selfies from 15m up. If even reading that makes you queasy, keep your feet on the ground and explore the park’s lovely waterfalls.
Sure, you can use Wotif to just book your car hire in Gold Coast. But we’re so much more than that. We’ve got Gold Coast packages that will leave you with lots more money to spend on the good stuff…like another souvenir from the beachfront markets.P.S. We wear a size medium.
