The Gold Coast: A once quiet beachy town akin to that of Byron Bay and the Sunshine Coast. Fast forward 30 years and it is the flourishing little brother of Queensland’s capital, Brisbane. Gold Coast is home to monolithic ‘Surfer’s Paradise’ – arguably the second-most famous beach in Australia. But what lies around this along the eastern coastline is what makes the Gold Coast so special. The Gold Coast is an eclectic collection of hinterland, ocean, city-life, partying and housing finely intertwined into a concentrated area ripe for observation. AirShare offers a range of incredible flights on helicopters, light aircraft and seaplanes at prices we guarantee to be the cheapest! Browse the top-rated flights and experience the incredible Gold Coast from above.
Gold Coast is a fantastic spot located about 80km south of the Queensland capital of Brisbane. Similarly to the Sunshine Coast, the Gold Coast is a close beach get-away from the rustle and bustle of the Brisbane City. The Gold Coast however, features impressive tourist attractions and a busy hub along Surfer’s Paradise to Broadbeach. The Coolangatta Airport is nestled snuggly alongside Tweed Heads – a town which lies along the Queensland and New South Wales border. It boasts incredible shopping, beaches and lifestyle.
