Journey: Gold Coast Airport to Burleigh Heads

Gold Coast Airport is the gateway to the iconic Burleigh Heads, so it’s little surprise that thousands of travellers pass from one destination to the other each week. To do so, there are plenty of options including public transport, taxis, and even hire cars. But public transport isn’t exactly the most efficient option, and taxis can often come with prices that don’t reflect their service. On top of that, hire cars leave you with the stress of navigating unfamiliar territory, finding parking, and even paying for fuel. That’s no way to spend a holiday, which is why we suggest going with the easiest and best value option. At Hughes, we offer door to door services from Gold Coast Airport to any location in and around Burleigh Heads. We operate at any time, seven days a week, so you’ll be covered regardless of when your flight arrives.

Travel times

You can’t plan a trip if you don’t know how long it’s going to take you. Luckily, with years of experience between our local drivers, we know how long it usually takes to get from Burleigh Heads to Gold Coast Airport (and vice versa). On average, it takes about 25 minutes. But when the roads are jammed with holiday traffic, or when the evening commuters take to the streets, congestion can push your travel times to a bit to around 30 minutes. On the other hand, if you time it right and land a smooth run, then your trip could be as quick as 16 minutes. So if time is of the essence, and you’ve got plans to make, then we would suggest avoiding flights that land during peak periods. If that’s unavoidable, you can rest in the knowledge that our professional chauffeurs will get you from one destination to the other via the quickest and most direct route possible.

Getting into the Gold Coast Airport

Whether you’re arriving at the Gold Coast Airport through the arrivals hall, or through departures, you’ll have plenty to keep you occupied. Of course, if you are arriving there then you will simply need to head to the arrivals hall to meet your waiting chauffeur. However, if you’re departing and you’ve got some time to kill, then you can choose from shopping, dining, and lounge services to keep busy. If you prefer to catch up on some work, then there’s free Wi-Fi throughout the terminal as well. Gold Coast Airport may be smaller than Australia’s primary airports, at just one terminal, but it proudly boasts no shortage of international facilities!

Burleigh Heads – here’s how to enjoy it

Burleigh Heads is perhaps one of the most iconic suburbs in the Gold Coast, and it boasts some of the most spectacular scenery of any suburb in Australia. Positioned on a headland abutting the Coral Sea, Burleigh Heads is a perfect mix of natural beauty, surf beaches, dining, shopping, and green space. In fact, there are over 450 Norfolk Pines in the area that house no shortage of native birdlife. Its north facing beach offers some of the best surfing, swimming, and body boarding on the Gold Coast – and that’s really saying something considering what’s on offer. To see Burleigh Heads at your own pace, reliable transport is a must. That’s why we offer door to door service throughout Burleigh and the Gold Coast surrounds. Simply let us know where you need to go and we will get you there.
