The light rail operates between Broadbeach and the Gold Coast University Hospital at Southport and is the most convenient transportation along the beachfront tourist destinations and nightspots including Southport, Main Beach, Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach.  Unfortunately the G:Link extension to Helensvale Station will not be completed in time for the conference – buses operate between Griffith University station and Helensvale.
