About Gold Coast:
Approximately 90 km south of Brisbane city, the Gold Coast is the second most populated city in the state. The Gold Coast’s metropolitan area converges with that of outer Brisbane, forming part of an urban sprawl of over 3 million people. The Gold Coast also holds the title of the largest cross-state population, due to the inclusion of Tweed Heads, New South Wales.
With its sunny subtropical climate, world class surfing beaches, and pristine waterways, the Gold Coast has many things to offer resident and visitors. Its surfing culture, theme parks, nightlife, and rainforest hinterland have generated significant tourism industry for Queensland. The Gold Coast will also host the Commonwealth Games in 2018.
About Gold Coast Airport:
The Gold Coast Airport is a domestic and international airport located at the southern end of the Gold Coast. The airport is some 25 km south of Surfers Paradise and around 100 km south of Brisbane. The runway itself straddles the state border of Queensland and New South Wales. During summer these states are in two different time zones, which can make flight arrival and departure times confusing. In 2011, The Gold Coast Airport was named the sixth busiest airport in Australia. It is also the third fastest growing airport in the country.
