getting to brisbane from the airport

Brisbane Airport (BNE) is 15km north of the city centre with plenty of ways to get into the city.  Travelling between terminals is also possible on the Airtrain which runs every 15-30 minutes.

  • Airtrain time - This is the same Airtrain that goes between terminals and it cost about $18 to get into the city. One leaves about every 15 minutes and it’s best to plan ahead.
  • Bus - Con-x-ion Airport Transfer buses provide door to door transfers to and from the airport to Brisbane CBD and even further afield to the Gold Coast or Sunshine Coast It pays to book ahead though.
  • Grab a Cab  - The more expensive but stress free option is to catch a taxi, costing around $35, give or take, to get into Brisbane. The taxi rank is right outside the airport and there’s always a steady stream of taxis waiting so all you need to know is the address of where you need to get to.
