Around and About the Gold Coast
Gold Coast Family Car Rentals is owned by Darryl & Denise Essington-Wilson and our middle son Grant. We completed our first 16 years of operation on 20th July 2017.

The dolphins delighted in catching a wave and peeling off the back just as it was breaking – a quick dash back out to sea and onto another wave). (c) The beaches of Byron Bay are world renowned – check out Main Beach; Watte . . .
The Games will be held on the Gold Coast from 4th to 15th April 2018 at venues throughout the city and at satellite venues in Brisbane, Cairns and Townsville. Athletes from 70 nations and territories will compete in 23 different sports, many of these sports will include eve . . .
The big ticket item for April is the Commonwealth Games from 4th to 11th April Weather: April continues with milder weather - beautifully sunny but not too hot. You should reasonably expect maximum daily temperatures ranging from 260 to 290 and minimum daytime temperature . . .
