Next time you find yourself along the Gold Coast, make a stop in Southport. Heaps of seascape areas and eclectic boutique shops make this bustling city a perfect addition to your bucket list. What do you mean, it’s not on your list already? Here’s a pen. Add it. We’ll wait.
As you’re picking out your Southport accommodation, just remember that you won’t have to spend your whole holiday wearing out your thongs. Book one of Wotif’s Southport car hire deals so you can drive along the coast whenever you darn well feel like it.
You can’t say you’ve been to Southport without making a stop at Australia Fair, one of the largest shopping complexes in the area. Park your Southport car rental close to the entrance and make sure whatever you picked has a big boot—you’ll buy plenty to stash in it.
What’s that sound, you ask? Why, it’s the ocean calling your name. Make your way to the Marina Mirage Boardwalk. Follow the wooden planks that hug the coastline and get some snaps of all the sailboats hanging out in the harbor.
If you find yourself ready to explore, rent a car in Southport and hit the road. If you travel 75km north you’ll run into Brisbane, the capital of Queensland. Known for its vibrant nightlife and unique theatre scene, it’s one of those cities you fall in love with at first sight. Try not to get too much confetti and glitter in the car, please.
Life is fine when you’re near the Gold Coast, so make some time to see it for yourself. Remember that it’s easy to save big bucks when you book your Southport packages with Wotif. We know you’d rather use those dollarydoos on some prime shopping anyway!
