First answer is very inaccurate. It's about a 1 hour drive or more than $150 in cab. You need to get to either Robina or Nerang to get train. That will be under $20. Fom Coolangatta get to Surfers Paradise or Broadbeach for best connections to train. Shuttle to train from Surfers is in train ticket price or just a tiny bit extra. This is your best option. Bus connections not so common these days. over 8 years ago
To clarify train from Nerang or Robina to Brisbane CBD is under $20. over 8 years ago
I would like to stay at a reasonably priced hotel in Melbourne preferably in the city and easily accessible. My budget is 70 to 100a$.
Best bet is to check wotif.com or similar. CBD is not huge and anywhere within 5 km radius will generally be within reach of great public transport. Should be lots io options to suit many budgets. Try Southbank and South Melbourne which has some recent additions in cheaper accom. Spencer st and Flinders st also offer options, though these are noisy streets. over 8 years ago
