Places to Visit with your Car Hire in Southport

As one of Gold Coasts oldest suburbs and the 6th largest city in Australia, Southport will leave you spoiled for choice when it comes to the pursuit of leisure and entertainment, including the yearly Lunar New Year celebrations, Australia Fair to waterbound activities, such as parasailing, kayaking and fishing. And to help you make the most out of your stay in Southport, we’ve curated a list of our top destinations and experiences which you can visit when you rent a car from us. 

Aqua Adventures 

Explore the oceans along with Gold Coast’s most experienced scuba divers as they take you whale watching, snorkelling and other ecological tours. They sport a range of high-quality gear to allow visitors to get as close as possible to the action while staying safe and protected. Daily dives and cruise charters are available for the Gold Coast Wrecks and surrounding islands, while Whale Tours are limited to the pods’ annual migration patterns. Plus, you can also turn to the same team for professionally certified Scuba Diving courses for all levels. s. 

Cooee Tours 

No, we did not misspell “coffee.” Cooee is an Australian-owned and operated Coach company offering a unique experience exploring the Boggo Road Gaol—once the largest and most notorious prison in Queensland. Now, it’s become the region’s most unique heritage sites and tourist attractions. Join this historical tour as it takes you behind brick walls where tour guides dressed as guards captivate you with their storytelling and reveal the insides of Boggo Road Gaol. 

Hinterland Heritage Wine Tour 

Another attraction organised by Cooee tours, the wine tour lets you enjoy a day full of wine tasting while stopping by heritage sites, courtesy of a designated driver. Plus, lunch is included in the 8-hour tour and the activity circles back to the starting point. You might want to set aside driving to this destination or get an extra driver to bring you and pick you up from the spot. 

Broadwater Parklands 

Sitting just north of Surfers Paradise, this location offers a wide array of activities the whole family can enjoy. This parkland and community spot can be found on Marine Parade’s Broadwater Side, just opposite the Australia Fair Shopping Centre. But you’re not really visiting to shop. You’re better off exploring the numerous shaded spots for picnics or to take a dip at the Rockpools water playground—perfect for kids and the young at heart!

Good cars, excellent variety and keen rates. Easy website booking. Airport pick up and drop off very good. Good people to deal with. I’ve used these guys twice and will continue on every Brisbane visit.

First time hire with Alpha and I must say it was great. Much better value than other hire companies. Was reticent about the off airport location but the shuttle was easy, virtually no waiting and drivers friendly and polite. Check-in and drop off very easy as well. Again, staff were great. Car clean and no problems.

I used Alpha 10 years back when they had just started out and loved their service back then, so when it came time to hire another car in Brisbane I sought them out. Super pleased to see their great work has paid off and they are now a massive company but have retained the small company service and vibe. Super friendly staff from the shuttle drivers, to front desk and phones. 0800 is answered quickly unlike others. Nice vehicles and great price. Will be back for sure.

Great experience renting a truck (both times). In both cases - clean interior, runs well. Hydraulic lift, A/C, cruise control were in good working order. Booked and paid online, no hassle pickup and drop off, friendly staff. Also, great price on truck rental, looks like the best in the city. Don't forget to fill that tank when returning the vehicle.

The business is located in the perfect spot in Hendra and there is a service station only metres away, making it super easy to refuel just before returning the car. The staff are quick, friendly and efficient. The car I had was relatively new and in excellent condition (although it did need a more thorough clean, which could be due to my last minute booking). The shuttle bus runs regularly and the driver was extremely helpful and considerate. Overall, I was very happy with every aspect of my first experience with them. It won't be my last!
There is no selected car class in current office. Please choose another Class!
