The Gold Coast home of the Hancock Guitar Making Course

Travel to the Gold Coast

Our workshop is located on Queensland’s Gold Coast, one of the world’s most renowned holiday destinations.

The Gold Coast is a popular holiday destination. The white sand beaches, world class shopping, restaurants and nightlife make the Gold Coast an ideal place to have a good time. It is also a short drive from Mount Tamborine, an area known for its pristine national parks, art and craft galleries and wineries.

Consider bringing your spouse or family when you attend our course, they won’t run out of ways to fill the time while you are busy building your guitar.

There is a wide range of accommodation within close proximity of our workshop, from hostels and guest houses through to 5-star hotels.

Most hotel accommodation is a little too far away to be within comfortable walking distance but Air bnb often has alternate accommodation in the area that’s closer and cheaper than the hotels.

The Gold Coast has many different precincts each with their own character and attractions. Surfers Paradise is the closest to us and is only a 5-10 minute drive, Broadbeach, Main Beach and Southport are also relatively close. If you need advice about the best places to stay just let us know.


There are several car rental companies in the area. Taxi, Uber and bus transport are also good alternatives to driving; the closest bus station is at the Gold Coast Arts Centre which is a 10 minute walk from our workshop.

There is plenty of free parking in the carpark outside the workshop.


The Gold Coast has countless restaurants so eating out or getting takeaway out is never a problem. There are many supermarkets and convenience stores where you can buy food and supplies. There are even some restaurants and food stores within walking distance of the workshop.
