If your trip to Gold Coast is all organized but your itinerary is looking a bit empty, let us give you a few hints and tips.
One glance at a postcard stand will show that a visit to Gold Coast is not complete without visiting Sea World. As the most famous sight in the area, you might want to spend more time here than a quick stop.
Surfers Paradise Beach and The Star Gold Coast are some interesting attractions that all travelers should make time to stop by. Map out a route and spend some time experiencing each one.
Stop by Cascade Gardens. It's one attraction you'll find on most visitors' must-do lists. If you still have room on that schedule, Queensland Korean War Memorial and Capri on Via Roma will keep you occupied, too.
Make sure the gas tank is full, because there are a few good reasons to go exploring beyond Gold Coast. They include Queen Street Mall in Brisbane — an appealing road-trip destination just 47 miles away. After another reason to visit? Roma Street Parkland is also within easy reach.
Rain or shine, you'll be able to get a glimpse of some of the magnificent beaches near Gold Coast from behind the wheel of your own rental car. As you cruise along, keep your eyes open for seabirds drifting over these dazzling stretches of coastline:
If you're eager to do some serious business networking in the convention centers of Gold Coast, it'd be wise to get yourself a rental car.

Nothing says good times like a good ol' road trip, especially when you're journeying someplace as exciting as Gold Coast. With big-name sights like Sea World and Dreamworld, there's so much to see and so little time. That's where a rental car is a godsend. You'll be able to check out loads more places — but select something small for easy city driving, like an economy car. If you're not willing to cruise around the urban jungle, Gold Coast City is teeming with natural marvels. Ditch the zippy runabout for something larger, like a standard vehicle, and explore picture-perfect mangroves.
There's loads of choice when it comes to rental cars in Gold Coast. From SUVs with trunk space galore to zippy compacts that make parking a cinch, you'll find it all here. Choosing your ride of course depends on your budget and where you plan to go. There are some road trips that are just begging you to splurge on your dream ride, whereas other adventures don't need more than four wheels and a gas pedal. Which will it be this time?
