The Gold Coast of Australia is like taking everyone's idea of a perfect vacation and putting it all together in one place. There really is everything you could possibly want here -- wonderful weather, great beaches, casinos, theme parks, pubs, restaurants, and shops. There's also plenty of natural beauty -- "the green behind the gold" -- to explore when you rent a car in Gold Coast.
After disembarking from your Gold Coast flight, the heart of the action is at Surfers Paradise just 15 miles away. It's aptly named, as it's a great spot for surfing and other water sports. After enjoying the vast array of entertainment options, get yourself a Gold Coast car rental and head out into the bush. The Gold Coast Hinterland is a mountainous wilderness of rainforests, waterfalls, and rivers -- highlights include Tamborine Mountain and Lamington National Park.
Australia's third largest city, Brisbane, is just an hour to the north, and offers plenty of city-slicking opportunities. The South Bank area is the cultural hub of the city, where you'll find lots of art galleries, museums, and the trendiest bars and restaurants. Just outside the city is Mount Coot-tha, which offers wonderful views of the Brisbane skyline, especially when it's lit up in the evening. South of Gold Coast is Byron Bay, another popular tourist destination -- it has some excellent beaches for swimming and surfing, with the added bonus of being a great place to see whales and dolphins. The walk from town to Byron Lighthouse is splendid, and a must-do on any visit here. There's a lot to do in the area, but our cheap rental cars in Gold Coast will allow you to get around without breaking the bank.
