Journey: Gold Coast Airport to Main Beach

Main Beach, located at the northern end of the Gold Coast, is a popular beach in the town of Southport. Main Beach is located 7.1 kilometres from the Gold Coast’s city centre. Gold Coast Airport is situated at the southern end of the Gold Coast and is approximately 24.3 kilometres from Main Beach. A trip between the two will typically take around 35 minutes. Although a car ride is your fastest solution, there are a few transport options available. Buses and shuttles run from the airport however, these will certainly add extra time to your journey. Taxi’s and hire cars are also a possibility, though the costs associated often outweigh the benefit.
