Car Travel on the Gold Coast Australia

Traveling the Gold Coast by car  is a delight. The roads are very good and the traffic is comparatively light. parking within Surfers Paradise can be a problem, especially at night.
Local Tip: Park your car in the free ‘Jupiters Casino’ car park – take the lift to the 1st floor and catch a bus or taxi from the main entrance into Surfers Paradise. Your taxi fare will be less expensive than the parking fees in Surfers Paradise and you will reach your destination faster than if you take the car into Surfers Paradise. Check out the casino whilst you are there – the restaurants, shops and entertainment are subsidized by the casino activities and are first class. If you have any foreign currency you want to exchange, the casino usually has the best exchange rates.

Traveling by car has the advantage of being able to stop where ever or when ever you want. Also it enables you to travel routes that  are not  part of  tour programs.

You can hire cars with drivers or self drive. When hiring a car in summer make sure that it has an air conditioner. A normal drive car is adequate for the Gold Coast, you do not need a 4 wheel drive unless you intend to travel into the outback from the Gold Coast, or further  than Cairns in the North.
