Current plan is to hire a car from Gold Coast and do the drive to Brisbane and then possibly keep the car for the three days so we can do some exploring. Our hotel has free car parking so we shouldn't have an issue there.
My questions are:
A: Is the drive nice from Gold Coast to Brisbane or would the train be plenty for us (and cheaper)?
B: Is a car useful to have for the three days in Brisbane or not needed?
PS: We are staying at the The Point Brisbane, will this be a good central location? We chose this place because of the Free Parking.
