4 of us (all are pensioners) from Malaysia are going to GC in May for 8D/6N.
We had booked an apartment in Burleigh Heads.We intend to have an itenarary as below:
D1 -reach Colangatta Airport at 8.00am. plan to do some shopping and marketing beacause we'll like to cook for some meals as the food in GC is so expensive. May go to Carrara market or Robina shopping centre.
D2 - Sea world
D3 - Movie World
D4 - Currumbin Wildlife Santuary ,Surfers paradise,
D5 - Brisbane Day Trip
D6 - Tweed Head,Byron Bay , Cape byron and light house
We'll like to seek opinions from anyone who had travelled in GC before or the GC locals whether to rent a car or to buy a "go card' at the airport and travel by public transports. Which is more convenient and cheaper?
We'll like to go to Mt. Tumborine,is it good if we drive there?
Thanks a lot to anybody who answer.
Cars are cheap to rent on the Gold coast, and would make you trip to Tamborine mountain cheaper with four of you, otherwise, you would have to do a tour.
If you hire a car, try to go to O'reillys or natural arch and springbrook.
