Sun, sand and surf awaits when you travel from Sydney to the Gold Coast on a luxurious Greyhound bus!

Sydney is one of the most popular cities in the world, and boasts some of Australia’s best beaches in Bondi and Manly. But when you’re ready to see what the rest of Australia’s east coast has to offer, this is the trip for you.

Our overnight bus from Sydney to the Gold Coast stops at a slew of enchanting coastal destinations worth exploring further, including Port Macquarie, Coffs Harbour, Yamba, Ballina and Byron Bay, each blessed with stunning beaches and abundant wildlife.

As you cross the border into Queensland, you’ll reach the southern end of the Gold Coast. This extraordinary 70km (43mi) stretch of sun, surf and sand begins with a stop at Coolangatta, renowned for its clear waters and casual beachside culture.

Finally, you’ll stop at Surfers Paradise, the jewel in the Gold Coast’s crown. The bus will drop you off in the heart of Surfers Paradise, so you can head straight for Cavill Avenue to take a stroll down the ‘Glitter Strip’; take in the views from the top of Q1, the tallest building in Australia; or go for a dip in Surfers Paradise Beach, perhaps the most iconic beach in Queensland.

You can also get your adrenaline pumping with thrills, spills and animal encounters at one of the Gold Coast’s famous theme parks, or escape to the breathtaking Gold Coast Hinterland for a weekend of wildlife and waterfalls.
