Gold Coast Touring - Driving holiday

A new addition to our top ten list for tour driving destinations, the Gold Coast certainly boasts some beautiful scenic roads in the hinterland. Admire panoramic views of the subtropical forest dropping down to the vibrant coast and the never-ending ocean. There are also lovely drives to discover along the seafront in Main Beach, Surfers Paradise, Broadbeach, Miami Beach, Burleigh Heads, Currumbin, Kirra Beach and Coolangatta.

The Gold Coast Highway runs from Labrador to Coolangatta, not far from the waterfront, while the Pacific Highway (M1) is situated more inland. The major motorway linking Brisbane to Sydney, the Pacific Highway is a faster option if you want to travel from Southport or Surfers Paradise to Coolangatta.
