Hi, my partner and I are heading up to the Gold Coast for a long weekend in late May.
I'm wondering weather it would be more economical to catch public transport or hire a very basic car.
We are staying in Surfers Paradise and I have looked at hotel to airport transfers which will cost around $100, all up for both of us.
We are planning on spending 2 days at dreamworld / white water world and going to outback spectacular and spending the other 2 days by the beach and shopping.
Since we are both 24 the cost of getting a hire car is slightly higher, I've got quotes for around $250 at the cheapest.
My concern with getting public transport is that we are both from the country and not very good at / used to using it. I can't really get a good idea of how much trips to dreamworld etc would cost off the Internet.
Any help would be appreciated.
