Gold Coast Airport (OOL)

You are here Home  > Queensland  > Gold Coast >  Gold Coast Airport (OOL)

Although the Gold Coast is close enough to make Brisbane’s airport a convenient gateway, Gold Coast Airport (OOL) in Coolangatta at the southern end of the coast has frequent flights from most major destinations in Australia.

Surfside buses stop on the Gold Coast Highway outside the Airport, and they also operate an airport shuttle service from both Brisbane and Gold Coast/Coolangatta Airports with drop-offs to hostels and hotels along the Gold Coast. The shuttle costs around $21, so it’s a much better idea to walk five minutes to the highway and catch the local bus (route 700 to Surfers Paradise) for just $7.50 (or $5.24 with a go card).

If you’re travelling from Brisbane Airport, the Airtrain operates twice an hour with a connecting bus to Surfers Paradise. It costs $35.90 from the airport to Robina station or $55 with a connecting shuttle bus to your hostel.

    Australia's sixth-busiest airport and still more or less a tin shed.

    There’s more and better dining options after security check. In the food court inside, you have sumo salad with vegan options and also hungry Jack's.

    A parade of humanity, screaming children and families - pumping weekend sunrise at you on tvs and false cheer.

    QLDとNSWの境界にあります。案内板には英語と中国語と日本語が書かれているので、日本人も安心。国際線で帰国する際は最初に国内線の保安検査場を通過し制限エリアを経由して国際線の荷物検査を再び受けて搭乗という形になります。最初の検査で引っかからなかったもの(液体など)も2回目の検査で引っかかったりするので注意。

    Gold Coast Airport is quite a way from the tourist hubs. To avoid hefty taxi fares, take the 777 express bus to Broadbeach South then light rail to Surfers or Southport. It runs every 15 minutes.

    Small airport and weak services.. It closes at 11 p.m. so if you arrived at a late flight and expext shops open good luck!

    Get a Go-card from the tourist info, by the domestic arrivals. Can be used on all public transport including trains to Brisbane

    Nice little airport ruined by greedy money changes. Don't change foreign currency into aid here. They attempt to make 15+ cents from each dollar.

    Take an umbrella if wet weather is forecast as OOL preserves the old tradition of loading passengers via the tarmac.

    Good to know that Tiger does not provide accommodation one flight is cancelled. And the airport closes at night. And there might be raining a lot.

    Where all good bucks, hens or white leather shoe convention delegates fly in and out of. Expect tattoos, singlets and thongs and that's just the females.

    A tourist destination Gold Coast doesn't deserve a tiny airport

    Anyone is welcome in with a security check! Also, you can bring your own food and even coffee onto the domestic flights.

    Taxis cost around $55 - $60 to travel between the airport and Surfers Paradise.
