Gold Coast Transport Guide

Most Gold Coast residents get around by car and the city also offers public transport options of taxis and buses to travel around town as well as ferry and water taxi services around the Broadbeach waterways.

How to get around the Gold Coast

The most convenient way to get from A to B on the Gold Coast is to drive, particularly if you want to visit the hinterland areas. Otherwise the bus is the main form of public transport and services a wide area from Upper Coomera to Tweed Heads on the NSW border and beyond plus all the major GC attractions. A limited train line runs from Brisbane to Varsity Lakes, Robina, Nerang, Helensvale and Coomera with bus links from each station. If you are travelling around Southeast Queensland for a while, consider purchasing a go card - a rechargeable touch card for bus, train and ferry travel or an SEEQ card especially for tourists. Another option, while not a public transport service, is to travel by limousine or Hummer limo, which is hugely popular on the GC.
