Hiring cars in Gold Coast is one of the perfect ways to explore this region in Australia and car hire can be found directly from Gold Coast Airport (OOL) at your convenience, meaning you can drive away in comfort with an air-conditioned vehicle straight away to start your journey. You will also benefit by avoiding busy public transport with your luggage and it may work out more economical, especially if you are travelling in groups. Gold Coast is Queensland’s top tourist spot, and you can explore the city, famous for its film productions and art scenes, or the local beaches and nearby national parks with your hire car. You can reach Surfers Paradise or Broadbeach in under half an hour from Gold Coast to find water sports, beaches, and nightlife, or Coolangatta which is only a five-minute drive from the airport, offering opportunities to go scuba diving and bushwalking.
All vehicles in Australia drive on the left-hand side, and you will find 30mph speed limits in most urban and residential areas around the Gold Coast region. You will find well-maintained roads and good connections around Gold Coast with the Gold Coast Highway which will take you to the major towns including Surfers Paradise, Broadbeach and Southport. All roads are toll free but if you happen to be travelling into neighbouring Brisbane via the M1 Gateway Motorway, you will be subject to tolls. Surfers Paradise can be especially busy with cyclists and pedestrians, so be alert when travelling around the busy spots and keep within suitable speeds.
