The residential oasis of Helensvale is approximately 42 kilometres north of Gold Coast airport. A trip from Gold Coast Airport to Helensvale will take on average 35 minutes. Helensvale has the good fortune of being very well connected to numerous places via public transport, and the airport is no exception. Whilst public services are objectively cost-efficient, they can be a little on the slow side. The fastest public transport trip will take you 1 hour and 20 minutes and you’ll need to catch a bus and a tram to get there.

Hailing a taxi is also an option, but if you’d rather skip the high-priced meterage and taxi queue, we’d recommend a Car Australia airport transfer. We are as competitively priced as the average ride share service but with all the added benefits. We offer round the clock service with a door-to-door guarantee.
