Brisbane Airport (BNE) is 20km north of the city centre with plenty of ways to get into the city. The only thing you do want to prepare for is the distance between terminals. It’s about 3km between each one so make sure you give yourself plenty of time. You can get between terminals on the Airtrain which is about $5 and runs every 15-30 minutes.
Airtrain time - This is the same Airtrain that goes between terminals and it cost about $16 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 Gold Coast or Sunshine Coast look Brisbane. It pays to book ahead though.
Hire a taxi - The more expensive but stress free option is to hire a taxi, costing around $35, give or take, to get into Brisbane. The taxi pick up place 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.
This place is huge and there is a ton of stuff to do. Brisbane is the capital of Queensland and is the 3rd largest city on the continent.

Get the scratchpad out and start taking notes.
