Brisbane Airport, inaugurated in 1988, is the main international airport serving Brisbane and the southeastern part of Queensland. It caters for both international and domestic flights through two separate terminals, making it one of the busiest gateways to Australia. In 2013, Brisbane Airport served more than 21.8 million passengers, and as of 2015, operates 26 airlines flying to 70 destinations worldwide. The airport premises boast a wide selection of dining and shopping options where passengers can kill time waiting for a flight or do some last-minute shopping at the duty free area or at the numerous souvenir shops. There is also a free shuttle bus from the domestic and international terminals that will take you to Skygate, a massive mall with over 120 factory outlet brands, more dining options, and Queensland’s only 24-hour Woolworths supermarket. Brisbane Airport also has wireless Internet (free for 3 hours), mobile charging stations, public showers, and disability access. Travel between the two terminals via the Airtrain, which costs AUD$5 per journey.
Passengers have a number of transportation options to get from the airport to the Brisbane city center. The most affordable and convenient route is by the Airtrain, which runs from 5.04 am to 10.04 pm on weekdays, and 6.04 am to 10.04 pm on weekends. The Airtrain departs every 15 minutes and takes approximately 30 minutes to reach the city center. The prices vary depending on your date and the distance, but prices generally start around AUD$16 for a one-way adult ticket. If you are traveling in a bigger group, it may be more economical to share a taxi, which can be found outside the domestic and international terminals. Yet another option is to take a bus – you can find more information and make bookings at the Con-x-ion Airport Transfers customer service counters at either International Terminal Level 2 or just outside the Domestic Terminal. Within the city center, travelers can easily get around on Brisbane’s efficient and well-developed train and bus public transport system. For convenience and travel savings, travelers can purchase a Translink Go Card, which is an electronic ticket that can be used on trains, buses, and ferries.
As the capital city of Queensland, Brisbane is a bustling metropolis and Australia’s third largest city. Despite the fast pace of development, Brisbane maintains a chilled and laidback atmosphere and lifestyle, making it a top-choice for travelers and expatriates. The people of Brisbane reflect this lifestyle, and are known for being warm, friendly, and easy-going. A great time to visit Brisbane would be in September for the famous Brisbane Festival held annually in South Bank. Brisbane Festival is great way to enjoy Brisbane’s wonderful climate and cultural offerings, and there are usually fun activities and games as part of the festival. Brisbane enjoys great weather all year round, making it a perfect place for nature lovers and outdoorsy folks. Some popular tourist spots include the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary (where you can cuddle up to a koala), Mt Coot-tha (for breathtaking views of the Brisbane skyline), or The Scenic Rim (a large arc of mountains with guesthouses and hiking routes). Brisbane is also a pit stop to some of Australia’s most breathtaking beaches which can be found at Noosa (along the Sunshine Coast) and at Surfer’s Paradise in Gold Coast.
