So if you live in Queensland, and you want to fly Air Asia, then you can leave from Gold Coast or first fly to Sydney. The bad news with going to Sydney, is that you have an extra air fare to pay AND you have to wait for a few hours for your connection. The bad news with Gold Coast is that it is a three hours drive and you need to be there early. As we were taking our baby boy and his girlfriend, we decided to go to the Gold Coast the night before and get a cheap motel.
So we spent a pleasant evening drinking French champagne, eating Pizzas and watching the brave Aussie cricketers thrash the Poms. The money we saved on not going to Sydney more than paid for the accommodation and putting the car into long term parking.
