A man who allegedly committed a string of home invasions and car thefts on the Gold Coast has faced court.

Ben Andrew Goring, 24, was arrested by police last month after what they describe as a two day crime "spree".

Goring is facing 30 charges including kidnapping, armed robbery and attempted murder over the string of alleged offences.

Police claim Goring broke into several homes in Upper Coomera, Carrara and Numinbah Valley on August 27 and 28.

He is also accused of stealing a car at one of the homes at gunpoint and, in one incident, forcing a 56-year-old man to drive for him.

Goring is also facing charges related to shots being fired at two cars in separate incidents on the Pacific Motorway in the Logan area, south of Brisbane, and on the Gold Coast late in August.

Goring made a brief appearance via video-link on Thursday at the Southport Magistrates Court and has been remanded in custody.

His matter has been adjourned until November 10
