  • Premium Car Park: Just a one minute walk from to the terminal building, this is the best option for travellers who don't mind paying extra for convenience. It costs AUD 26 to park here each day, and the parking is fenced, covered and secure.

For budget travellers, the cheapest option is the TransLink bus. Take either route 569 or 590 to get from the airport into the city.
