Gold Coast Airport to Coffs Harbour

Coffs Harbour is a popular coastal town in NSW. Gold Coast Airport is the main air facility to service the southern end of Queensland and uniquely sits right on the border of NSW. Many travellers wishing to explore Coffs Harbour will often do so by flying into the Gold Coast first and then making their way across the border. The distance between the two destinations is still a considerable one, at around 287 kilometres. A trip between the two will take around 3 hours if you’re travelling by car. A trip via public transport can take anywhere from 6 to 8 hours depending on the line you catch.

Given the limited transport options available and the substantial distance, you will need to plan your airport transfer prior to arriving. If an all-day voyage isn’t an option for you, we’d recommend a private transfer with Hughes. Hughes is a chauffeur-driven service, offering convenient door-to-door pickup, with a fixed rate pricing system. We have a vast selection of premium and luxury vehicles at our disposal and operate any time of the day or night.
