fly into brisbaner and head straight to the goldcoast (easy drive or just over 1hr by train) spend three night at the coast and then head back and spend your last night in briabne

I think 4 days isn't long enough to do both.

Hi 4 days won't give you much time to experience both places.

If your outbound flight departs from Brisbane, then you could fly Melbourne to Coolangatta ( Gold Coast Airport) have three days there and then travel to Brisbane via train or bus for your last night.

I agree with Surfoz. Have a few days on the Gold Coast and a day/night in Brisbane to explore. It isn;t much time but hey, at least you get to have a little look around.

What is your budget for accomodation? See the below links for some ideas.

hi, my plan now is to arrive at brisbane and go to the factory outlets on day 1 for shopping and probably walk ard.

day2: lone pine koala sanctuary and take a bus to gold coast

day3: dream world

day4: movie world and internal flight to sydney.

can anyone suggest any cheap accomodation that we can stay in both brisbane/gold coast which is near to the places we want to go? we have 3 people. And is it cheaper to travel to places by bus or rent a car? Thanks!
