Top 5 things to do on the Southern Gold Coast

Top 5 things to do on the Southern Gold Coast - Gold Coast

The fabulous Gold Coast, renowned for stunning beaches, beautiful weather and its laid-back lifestyle, sees thousands of tourists each year landing at Brisbane and Gold Coast airports.

Surfers Rent A Car have the wonderful privilege of meeting tourists from all over the world after they fly into Brisbane and Gold Coast Airports and rent a hire car from us to take them off on their holidays and awaiting adventures.

Much is reported about the amazing attractions and things to do that the Gold Coast has to offer, namely the heart of Surfers Paradise and its glitter strip, but the Southern end of the Gold Coast, known for its more relaxed pace, has some awesome things to do and see as well.

Here, Surfers Rent A Car, with convenient locations at Mermaid Waters and the Gold Coast Airport, share with our readers the top 5 things to do on the Southern Gold Coast.

Currumbin Bird Sanctuary

Just a short distance away from where you pick up your Surfers Rent A Car hire car from the Gold Coast airport, Currumbin Bird Sanctuary has hundreds of native Australian animals on display, all within a stunning natural bushland and rainforest setting.

Not just a place to gaze upon the resident birds and animals, Currumbin Bird Sanctuary also features interactive displays, presentations, dining experiences, wildlife shows, animal encounters and The Green Challenge high ropes adventure course.

Fun for all ages, the Currumbin Bird Sanctuary is a magical day out for all the family.

Point Danger

Here, visitors to the Gold Coast get the best of both worlds. Sitting high on a peak with magnificent views, Point Danger, named by Captain Cook in 1770, marks the border between Queensland and New South Wales. You can literally be in Queensland and New South Wales at the same time!

Read about Australian maritime history as you enjoy the superb views from Surfers Paradise, all the way through to Byron Bay and spy dolphins or whales out to sea.

Be sure to pack a picnic in your hire car or enjoy the must have Gold Coast fare of fish and ships from the local cafés and shops.

Go to the beach

Just as the heart of the Gold Coast has some amazing beaches, so does the southern Gold Coast. Choose from Currumbin Beach, Greenmount/Coolangatta Beach, Kirra, Palm Beach, Tallebudgera, Rainbow Bay or Tugun Beach.

The Gold Coast offers some of the world’s best surf beaches like Snapper Rocks so whether you’re here to hone your surfing skills or to take the family to the beach for a swim, Southern Gold Coast leaves you spoilt for choice for pristine beaches and coastline.

Take a driving tour

Having already collected your hire car from Surfers Rent A Car at the Gold Coast airport, we suggest you take full advantage of some of the wonderful places you can easily drive to.

The beautiful, lush rainforest at Mount Tamborine is a short trip away in your rental car.  It is the third oldest National Park in the world and well worth a visit.

Here you can be amazed with spectacular hinterland views, enjoy one of twelve walking tracks, feast on home grown produce or take a stroll down Gallery Walk, where all manner of cafes and artisanal shops await you. 

Or, if you prefer a visit to a stunning waterfall, drive your Surfers Rent A Car hire car to Springbrook Mountain. Purlingbrook Falls has a 4 klm circuit that trails down through a gorge, leading to a picturesque waterfall surrounded by rock pools.


The Southern Gold Coast has a plethora of amazing eateries and restaurants to suits all tastes. Whether you seek glorious fresh seafood straight off the trawlers, street style food, fresh organic vegan produce or want a la carte menus, the Southern Gold Coast has it all and more!
