Gold Coast Treasure: Gold Coast Auto Wreckers

Most Gold Coasters are familiar with the wrecking yard located on the Pacific Motorway at Reedy Creek. It has a ramshackle house with an eye-catching pink FX Holden on the veranda.

Gold Coast Auto Wreckers has been operating from the site for decades, opening when the motorway was a mere gravel road.

It is considered to be the biggest wrecking yard on Australia’s east coast and owner Will Smith (or Will the Wrecker as he is fondly known) has many memories of the thousands of old cars that fill the 5ha site.

Check out our interview with Will and check out unseen footage of the wrecking yard below:
