Wow! You’ve scored a stopover of roughly 12 hours on the beautiful Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia. Hot diggity dog! Now you are wondering how much you can see and do in that time.

You’ve flown into the Gold Coast airport, which is a big plus as the airport is situated at the far end of the Gold Coast near the NSW border. This way you can start at one end of the coast, work your way to the top and then scoot back down the highway to the airport, and off to your next port of call.

Along the way you can visit one or several well-known theme parks designed to give you and the family value for money. Perhaps take a spin driving a rally car or go hot air ballooning. If you prefer to take the coast road, you will definitely want to visit the SkyPoint observation deck on level 77 of Q1, the Gold Coast’s tallest building. This is a view not to be missed by travel weary or new visitors to the Gold Coast.

Perhaps you would prefer to go south of the border and explore the intimate nooks and crannies of the northern rivers and the beautiful beaches heading into Byron Bay and then, make your way out to Bangalow for the country markets.

Now that you have that settled, all you need now is the wheels to do it in.
