The Perfect Holiday Ambiance

The city of Coolangatta is situated around 100km (62 miles) south of Brisbane, on the border of New South Wales- the neighbouring state and can be easily reached in your cheap car hire.  Situated on the world famous Gold Coast, the city offers the perfect opportunity for lots of fun particularly for surfers and water lovers!  The beaches here are unique and can be reached from every aspect.  The waves break wonderfully, the sand is fine and extend out over a kilometre. 

The sun shines for the best part of the whole year- on average 300 days a year, therefore there are lots of street and beach cafes that invite you in to enjoy refreshing drinks.  Shops offer summer and beach fashion.  A Mediterranean style of living that seems to be due to the sun.  The salty smell in the air and the sound of the sea really give the impression that you are on holiday!    

Enjoy Shopping by the Beach

The first excursion we recommend that you go on is a walk along the promenade and the main shopping street of Coolangatta- the Marine Parade.  Every second Sunday in the month, you will find the Coolangatta market here- a market well worth seeing that invites you to stroll around or to shop.  The Showcase Shopping Centre with its wonderful view of the sea also offers the opportunity to stroll along and/or shop and allows you to follow the newest trends in bathing and beach fashion. The cafes and restaurants in the Marine Parade won’t leave you wishing for anything and is a perfect starting point for a day on the beach. 


Surfers Eat Your Heart Out!!!

The local beaches belong to the best in the world- a trip in the direction north along the Gold Coast makes the hearts of every surfer beat and can be easily reached in your car hire!  Near to the city both sections of the beach, Greenmount Beach and Rainbow Bay offer excellent opportunities for those of you that like to swim.  They are the only ones along the Gold Coast- that look out in a northerly direction as well as being relatively sheltered.  They lie directly before the gates of the city and are ideally combined with a nice walk on Snapper Rock, a small spit that juts out into the sea. Kirra Beach and Coolangatta Beach are situated a little further north, easily reached in your cheap car hire and are also worthwhile seeing- and is teeming with surfers. The waves on Kirra Beach belong to some of the best in Australia so that the water appears to be populated on most days with pointy dots.  Next to the surfers, the curious on-lookers and visitors love to watch the spectacle on the best of the waves.


And if the Beach Doesn't Take Your Fancy......

For a varied and beach free day trip the area around the Tambourine Mountain, north west of Coolangatta can be reached in just 45 minutes in your cheap car hire.  The hilly plateau lies west of the coastline, some kilometres inland of Queensland.  On an area of approximately 40 square kilometres (15 square miles) there are lots of facilities for every visitor to spend a relaxing day in the countryside.  

The highest point of the plateau is the already mentioned Tambourine Mountain that is approximately 600 metres high.  In the area of the mountain you will find diverse parks and pathways- the countryside is also popular for bird-watching and nurseries.  The reason for this is due to the extremely fertile topsoil.  Combined with a picnic in a sheltered spot, you can expect an eventful day that promises a change from the beach and the sea.  The views here are extensive and on a good day you can see right across to the east coast?  In the west you will find the Great Dividing Range- the largest mountain range in Australia.
