I'm going to do a short trip (a week or so) to Goldcoast for my X-mas holiday on my own. Yes pretty nervous!
And I haven't even booked anything yet......I know it's totally a last minute. Oh btw, I'm in Adelaide now.
Got some questions for a travel guru!
2.Accommodation ? (Any inexpensive resort or something similar)
3.How to meet people ?
1: depending on your budget ... flight would obv be way quicker, tho the bus will be heaps cheaper, it'll take forever! - fly for sure ... gold coast airport is in Coolangatta which imo is the best location in Australia.
2: check the accomodation tab on the left hand side of this site ... very helpfull!
3: hotel/hostel ... bars ... beach ... everywhere i guess - chat chat chat!

1) Fly if you can. Check flights from jetstar and virgin blue on www.webjet.com.au - consider flights to Brisbane as well as Coolangatta as they may well be cheaper (Brisbane is a bigger and busier airport) plus Brisbane is only about an hour away and there is a train direct from the airport see www.airtrain.com.au
2) As above
3) Go to the beach, it's a seminal spot for aussies and travellers.
