General Information:

The M1 / A1 corridor is the main coastal route from the NSW border to the northern tip of the east coast of Australia, and links major cities and towns with Brisbane, and beyond the NSW border, Sydney.

Pacific Motorway:

The M1 portion of the Pacific Motorway bypasses the suburban areas of the Gold Coast and outer Brisbane areas, and passes through residential, commercial and industrial areas, and features a number of service roads to cater to some of the industrial and commercial zones.

The section from Brisbane to Springwood is formerly known as the South Eastern Freeway.

The Pacific Motorway passes several Gold Coast tourist attractions such as Warner Bros. Movie World, Wet 'n' Wild Water World, and Dreamworld.

The route features twin tunnels bypass the Tugun area as it crosses into NSW.
