Top tips for finding cheap flights to Gold Coast

  • Looking for a cheap flight? 25% of our users found tickets from Canberra to the following destinations at these prices or less: Coolangatta $103 one-way - $229 round-trip
  • Gold Coast Airport (OOL) is the international gateway serving the popular tourist destination just south of Brisbane. The facility is located about 2 km from downtown Coolangatta and is a base of operations for the major airline Virgin Australia as well as the low-cost carrier Jetstar.
  • Both of these domestic providers offer direct flights from Canberra International Airport (CBR), but Jetstar also schedules a few competitively priced one-stop departures from Canberra requiring connections at Melbourne Tullamarine Airport (MEL). Virgin Australia also offers affordable one-stop service with comparable flight durations, but these involve layovers at Brisbane Airport (BNE) instead.
  • As an alternative, you may wish to consider flights from Canberra to Sydney and then get a connecting flight to the Gold Coast. For example, Virgin Australia offers cheap flights from Canberra International to Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport (SYD) and Jetstar has inexpensive departures from Sydney to the Gold Coast. This route may take a bit longer, but it can save you a few dollars on airfares.
  • There are good transport links connecting Canberra City to the airport complex if you prefer not to drive. ACTION bus route Rapid 3 operates daily service from Spence Terminus, with stops at City Interchange Bus Station and other downtown locations en route. Additionally, Canberra Airport Express mini-buses are available from West Row Bus Station. Goulbourn Shuttle Bus provides transport from the Canberra CBD and Snowy Mountain Shuttles can transport you from Thredbo and surrounding areas.
  • Just because it is a short flight from Canberra does not mean you can’t enjoy a beverage or snack at one of the airport’s lounges before you depart. Qantas Club and Qantas Domestic Business Lounge Canberra are located after security in the Southern Concourse. Alternatively, you can find REX Lounge and Virgin Australia Lounge locations in the Western Concourse.

2 hrs + delay! Times kept changing, Onboard menu was half depleted, Entertainment wifi was N/A Overall very frustrating flight and I never slate Virgin.

Virgin Australia passed this flight onto Alliance, so my rating and comments are based on my experience with crew, aircraft and available options. Alliance only offers drinks which consisted of tea, coffee and water, free of charge. There was no on board entertainment. The aircraft seating although narrow accommodated my 6 foot 2 body with little discomfort.

When the flight is full out would be good to allow the use of the front toilet as well as the rear. Otherwise it was an uneventful flight.

When I made the booking I was not aware I had to book our checked baggage separately. As we had no checked luggage booking, I had to pay A$120 per bag (total 2 bags) so you can imagine I was not pleased. I am an experienced traveller so something needs to be done to improve the booking app,

Toasties not available (only GF option). Hot drinks not able to be served No usb charging port

Flight departed in time and arrived on time, no issues at all.

Boarding took place at the front and back. Weight of luggage was unclear and cost an arm and a leg.

The flight between Canberra and Coolongatta passed very quickly and was comfortable. The crew were very efficient and helpful. The boarding process is a bit slow and not done by rows. Overall, Virgin does a fairly good job.

The seats are so uncomfortable. The food doesn't exist unless you pay. Disappointed

This time is good . Don’t cancel flight with out early notice .

The flight was delayed over 2 hours. We had to wait on the plane and the air conditioning was turned off. The food was average and the cutlery was wooden!

Perfect. The flight was on time and the crew were very friendly and helpful.

Plane a little late departing, but not an issue. The pilots humour when he said “I will try to make up some time…. I know a few short cuts to Adelaide” made the passengers chuckle. This is what makes Qantas “Australian”.

I have never had a problem with flying Qantas, so this flight was the same as any other.

After British Airways cancelled my London to Sydney and Virgin Australia refused to refund, there was no ways I would try Virgin Australia again, so it was Qantas - what a good flight experience. So much easier to get off an international flight and get a local flight without having to add extra amounts for baggage

The plane was delayed about 3 hours so anything else is immaterial

It was so hot on the plane mixed with being quite turbulent and a rough landing. We all felt very nauseous for hours afterwards. Crew were lovely though.

For a long haul, the flight was good. We left an hour late due to a seat in business class not working. But they made up time and we still got in on time or even early thanks to tailwinds. The crew was friendly. The meals were okay, nothing special.

No internet on international flights in this dsy and age is bad.

Good. BUT the Kayak app kept sending me wrong messages saying that there was a Gate change. That same thing is happening today.

Online checkin was a nightmare. They kept popping me into Chinese language site which I can't understand.

a constant reminder that you need to work harder so you can avoid this airline

Note that food has to be purchased in flight. No free food. And no entertainment in flight. So I’ve treated these two items as okay which, in this case, means neutral/not applicable.

My Dad needed assistance to board the plane. The Jetstar staff were excellent with him and made the experience a lot easier😁

No food taken so can't rate also no entertainment so can't rate.

Boarding was easy and unstressful, though the early "final call" was a bit off-putting. The crew were pleasant, and the seats were comfortable. The prices for food and drink were reasonable, apart from tea and coffee, where simple percolated coffee was charged at espresso prices. Deboarding was OK, though some Jetstar passengers appear to have a bad habit of pushing forward from their assigned rows, making it more difficult to get out for passengers that have paid a premium to sit up-front. Jetstar might want to look to address this to stop it from spreading.

I got to the airport earlier than I expected, and they let me change to an earlier flight with no trouble.

It was a super crowded time to travel out of Melbourne, but the flight was OK

Worst experience ever flying Melbourne to Phuket. 5 hours delayed! Didn’t land till 1am in the morning. Staff were rude and unhelpful

Plane was late leaving darwin so we didn’t get home till 1130pm 2nd time in a fortnight that has happened. Hard when you have to work the next day
