Weekend at Gold Coast!

Advice please! Flying into Gold Coast airport and need help & advice. My daughter, her partner & myself are there for a long weekend in April 2008. What area is best for us to stay in? We dont want anything too loud & busy but still fairly central and affordable!! Any further advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hi Bankie,

Going by your criteria of central, affordable and not too crazy, I would suggest that you stay in Broadbeach or perhaps Burleigh Heads if you want it more quiet.

Broadbeach is about 20 kilometres north of Coolangatta Airport where you will flying into. It has a beautiful beach, is a few kilometres to Surfers Paradise, close to Jupiters Casino and Pacific Fair Shopping Centre.

There are also numerous restaurants, bars and even the odd nightclub to entertain yourselves. It is less frantic than Surfers paradise which is the tourist hub of the Gold Coast.

Check out the following buildings for Accomodation:

AIR

WAVE

ARIA

LA GRANDE

OCEANA ON BROADBEACH

TALISMAN APARTMENTS

ARIA

ULTRA
