Heading to different places is a way to break the monotony of the daily grind. It is a great way to divert your thoughts from the hard-core duties in life. If you are in this part of the continent where the Tasmanian Devils thrive, you have to consider taking a look at the “Place of Good View” (Coolangatta).

Like any other destination, the entry point is always the first question that comes to mind. Coolangatta Airport, now known as the Gold Coast Airport, used to be lined with three grass strips that serve as an emergency landing ground only for air transport vehicles that fly between Sydney and Brisbane. Presently, this runway sits astride the state border of Queensland and New South Wales. It is an accessible facility that is located on the western side of the Gold Coast Highway in this coastal suburb.

Gold Coast Airport caters to at least 380 direct flights each week, which include both domestic and international flights. Believed to be the world’s sixth busiest airport that brings people to Australia’s premier tourist destinations, it welcomes more than 6.5 million passengers annually.

All flights utilise the same terminal. The northern end of the Terminal building is where you can find the check in counters for both domestic and international flights. Terminal facilities include wireless internet and bar cafes. You can also enjoy dining “in the cool air”, the Al fresco way!

Route 777. This route has the most limited service, since it would take you only to the South tram station in Broadbeach. You then have to transfer to the G:link, which will take you to the other bus routes for your specific destination. Buses on this route run every 15 minutes from 7 a.m. to 7p.m., every day for the entire week.

Route 760. This route connects to Varsity Lakes Train Station, which departs every 30 minutes.

On the other hand, Surfside services guests and residents to Kingscliff and Potsville from Twead Heads and Murwillumbah.
