Flights to the Gold Coast: practical information

Cheap airfares to the Gold Coast

When to book the cheapest flights to the Gold Coast

The Gold Coast is a lush place to visit if you’re looking for sand and sun with consistent temperatures year-round. Avoid mid-November to mid-December like the plague! Tens of thousands of school leavers descend onto this place and while it’s probably fun for them, it can be a nightmare for everyone else.

  • Peak season: December to January are the most popular months.
  • Low season: March to November is generally considered the “off-season.”
  • Flight duration

    Direct flights to the Gold Coast take just over 1 hour from Sydney.

    Experience the Gold Coast: what to see and do

    The Gold Coast is often likened to places like Las Vegas and Miami. High-rise apartment blocks, ginormous shopping malls, million-dollar theme parks and one long golden strip of sand welcome more than 2 million tourists every year. The surfing is great and the nightlife is even better.

    Gold Coast essentials

    Surfers Paradise: Ready to party? Surfers Paradise is a hyper little place with nightclubs and shopping malls and entertainment. The best part is, it caters to everyone from martini-drinking folk to dance floor-slamming youth.

    Lamington National Park: Lamington National Park is Australia’s largest remaining subtropical rainforest and an UNESCO World Heritage site with more than 160 kilometres of hiking trails. The tree-top canopy walk along the Green Mountains is not to be missed.

    Coolangatta: Coolangatta is a quiet little place in the southern part of Queensland with good beaches for lounging and good waves for surfing. It’s a great spot to hit if you want to get away from the neon lights and chaos of central Gold Coast.
