Departing from Brisbane Airport

Getting to Brisbane Airport

Located 12 km from the city centre, a trip to Brisbane Airport on board the SkyTrain takes only 20-minutes. Tickets cost AUD 15 one-way and trains depart every 15 minutes from 5:04 a.m. to 10:04 p.m.

Another affordable option is to take the public bus. TransLink offers a service that connects passengers to Brisbane with its 569 and 590 routes. There are also coaches that provide direct transfers between the airport and the CBD.

If you want to take a cab or use a ride-sharing service, you can get dropped off at the front of the domestic terminal. A one-way fare will set you back AUD 33-42 depending on the traffic. 

Parking at Brisbane Airport

Parking at Brisbane Airport is safe, affordable and convenient. If you book online, you can pick up rates for as low as AUD 5 a day. Plus, the airport boasts a ParkValet service and a car wash.

Which Long-Term Parking Option is the Best for You?

ParkLong is the best option for stays longer than four hours. It's the closest long-term option to the domestic terminal and is just a short 3 to 10-minute walk to the check-in counters.

Park Premium is the most expensive option but gives you absolute convenience. It's located on level 3 of the P1 Domestic car park and has express entry and exit ramps into the terminal.

ParkValet is ideal for passengers who don't want to waste time looking for a parking spot. Simply drop off your car, grab your luggage and make your way to the check-in counters.
