A short 15 minutes from the city centre, Canberra Airport (CBR) is easy to reach. If you’re departing between 8am and 6:50pm take the Airport Express Shuttle Bus. If you’re leaving late, take a taxi, drop your car off at the terminal parking, or ride an Uber straight to the airport.
Brisbane Airport (BNE) is located 17km west of the city centre. Coachtrans offers direct transfers between the CBD and the airport every half hour for around $12. Or take the Airtrain for $15 and be there in just 22 minutes. If you’re driving allow at least 40 minutes during peak traffic times.
There can be no better place to explore Australian history and national culture than the city where Australia itself began. Start your visit with a trip to the nation’s seat of government at Parliament House on Capital Hill. Then head to the Australian War Memorial for a beautiful and moving testament to Australians involved in war.
Once you’ve steeped yourself sufficiently in Australian history, continue your tour of national accomplishments with a trip to the Australian Portrait Gallery, followed by the National Gallery of Australia. Housing over 400 portraits, and 166,000 other works of art, their collection is more extensive Australia has to offer. If you prefer the sciences to the art visit Questacon, Canberra’s hands on technology centre, or discover what’s beyond our world at the Deep Space Museum.
But there’s more to Canberra than just Australia’s capital. The city is rapidly transforming, and Canberra’s New Acton precinct has an influx of public art and killer cafes just as hipster as Melbourne’s own.
Brisbane’s fun and relaxed atmosphere, warm sunshine and cultural displays make the Queensland capital a popular holiday destination. Immerse yourself in the culture during the Brisbane Festival, cheer on the yachts during the Festival of Sails on Moreton Bay, or see how the city sparkles during the Christmas holiday season.
The South Bank draws the crowds with its beautiful galleries, museums, and restaurants set in tropical gardens. On the other side of the Brisbane River, experience café culture and street theatre as you make your way through the high end shops and eclectic boutiques of the Queen Street Mall.
There’s no shortage of activities here, from cuddling a Koala at the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, to climbing the Story Bridge or catching a game of cricket at the iconic Gabba – there’s always plenty to do in Brisbane.
