Gold Coast Airport To Kingscliff

Gold Coast airport (also known as Coolangatta airport) is an international airport located behind the famous Kirra Beach, situated around 10 kilometres east of the Gold Coast CBD.

Although the airport isn’t very big and both domestic and international flights depart and land at the same terminal; the transport options to and from Gold Coast airport to Kingscliff, are vast. There is the choice between public transport such as buses, taxis or chauffeured cars.

While you may think that Kingscliff is a long journey from the Gold Coast airport due to it being in a different state, it actually only takes approximately a 25-minute drive, depending on traffic conditions.

This is why we highly recommend Hughes chauffeured car transport that goes door to door and is considerably affordable. Just imagine Uber, with superior grade customer service and a luxury car.
