The Gold Coast Airport lies just to the south of Southport, which means that getting between them takes some planning. You could opt for public transport, but it doesn’t exactly match the glamour of your destination. Worse still, it can take a little while with all the different stops that need to be made. Taxis are another option, but even they aren’t immune to delays when the airport taxi rank is crowded. That’s why we would recommend a Hughes transfer. We will take you from the Gold Coast Airport to the doorstep of your Southport destination, and we will do it with a premium or luxury vehicle of your choosing. Our drivers are professional chauffeurs, which means our service is second to none, and your experience will be flawless. So don’t waste your time dragging bags between bus stops and train stations; book with Hughes and enjoy the very best of Southport before you even arrive.

If you’re looking to book dinners, hotel rooms, or function spaces, then you’ll be wanting a good idea of what to expect. To help your plans run smoothly, here’s an overview of your journey.
Travel times: the most important part of any plan! Between the Gold Coast Airport and Southport, you’ve got about 30km of road to cover. That means your journey will probably take about fifty minutes, depending on the time of day that you’re travelling. Of course, that’s a pretty broad estimate and there are lots of factors you need to consider before you lock your plans in. First, what time of day are you travelling? During peak hour, or in holiday season, highway traffic can become congested, leaving you with a journey of closer to around 60 minutes. On the other hand, if you’re travelling late at night, early in the morning, or in an off-peak period, your trip could be as little as 35 minutes.
Gold Coast Airport would have to take Australia’s first prize for location. It’s nestled alongside the stunning surf beaches of Coolangatta, which you will be able to take in as your plane descends. There’s only one terminal, which services both international and domestic flights, and makes your transfer an especially easy one. When you arrive, it’s simply a matter of walking from the gate through the arrivals hall and into your waiting limousine. Then it’s comfort and convenience all the way to Southport. The airport terminal is replete with all the amenities you need to remain comfortable and occupied until your departing flight leaves, too. So if you’re on the wrong end of a delayed flight you can rest easy in the knowledge that you’ll be well catered for.
Southport is one of Australia’s premier destinations for everything from surf and fishing, to restaurants and nightlife. Day and night, it is a throng of activity with a thriving local dining scene operating from early in the morning until late at night. That’s complemented by no end of retail outlets, which showcase everything from nationally recognised brands, to local creations in the world of fashion. The Australian Fair Shopping centre is a great place to find them all, and you can finish off your day on the beach or in the Southport Broadwater Parklands for some quiet time. If you’re into the aquatic side of things, you can head to the Gold Coast Aquatic centre, too, which offers a great family opportunity. To see it all (and more) simply book with Hughes. We can take you anywhere in and around Southport – all you need to do is let us know.
