Brisbane insider flight tips

  • Brisbane Airport is Brisbane's main airport but you can also fly to Coolangatta Airport on the Gold Coast, which is about 90 minutes from the city.
  • Brisbane Airport is Australia's third busiest airport and has two modern terminals.
  • The airport can get quite busy, especially during the Australian school holiday periods. Compared to Coolangatta, you may find flying into Brisbane Airport less hectic during peak periods. If you plan to spend your time on the Gold Coast, you can rent a car and drive down, returning the car back to the airport before your departure.

How to get around Brisbane from the airport

Brisbane’s Airtrain offers convenient services between the airport, Brisbane city and the Gold Coast, as well as transfers between the domestic and international terminals. Airtrain operates every day between 5:45am and 10pm, and departs every 15 minutes during peak hour.

If you’re travelling outside of those hours, or want full door-to-door service, you can book in a private or shared airport transfer in advance with Viator or Jayride.

Car rental desks are available at all terminals. Alternatively, an Uber driver can pick you up from passenger pick-up areas, but they can’t park at regular taxi ranks. A taxi into the city centre costs $25–$30, and you can find one at designated taxi ranks outside the terminals.
