Location information for Coolangatta


Coolangatta is the southernmost suburb of Gold Coast City, on the Australian east coast. The naming is somewhat bizarre: the place was called after the schooner Coolangatta which was wrecked here in a violent storm in 1846. Coolangatta and surroundings are a popular holiday destination because of the Gold Coast beaches.


The town has over 5,000 inhabitants.


Coolangatta is located on Australia's east coast, just inside Queensland (but part of the airport's runway lies in New South Wales). Coolangatta has a humid, subtropical climate with most rainfall in March. Coolangatta really forms a group with Tweed Heads, but this 'Twin Town' lies in New South Wales.


Just like Tweed Heads, Coolangatta has a large fishing community and shellfish therefore forms a significant ingredient on the menus in the tourist restaurants and hotels. Tourism is the other important source of income. Many retired Australians also choose to live on the Gold Coast.


The airport used to be named after Coolangatta, but nowadays it's called Gold Coast Airport. It's situated directly west of Coolangatta, between the Gold Coast Highway and the Pacific Highway. The airport is therefore easily reachable by rental car.

Public Transport

Several buses run along the Gold Coast, for example between Tweed Heads, Coolangatta and Surfers Paradise, but also to Kingscliff, West Tweed and Banora Point. There's a scenic bus route to Murwillumbah. Every hour buses also run to the less busy beaches of Bogangar and Pottsville, south of Coolangatta.

Traffic and Parking

Since the Pacific Highway was moved, the streets in the center of Coolangatta (and Tweed Heads) are far less busy; you'll have no trouble finding your way around and finding a free parking place is no problem either. Bear in mind though that some streets are extremely steep. Other destinations along the Australian east coast are easily reachable by rental car via the Gold Coast Highway and the Pacific Highway.


Being one of Australia's most popular beach destinations, Coolangatta has no shortage of accommodation: guesthouses, hotels, holiday resorts and apartments. We recommend booking your accommodation well in advance when visiting the Gold Coast in summer months (in Australia: November until March).

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is EasyTerra Car Hire the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
