Airports in Brisbane
Brisbane International Airport (BNE) is the only airport serving the Australian city of Brisbane, which is itself a key gateway to Australia's famed Gold Coast. The sprawling airport is laid out in a line that stretches several miles from the Domestic Terminal to the Airport Village complex, with all terminal buildings connected by shuttle and rail services. Although the airport is enormous and very busy (especially between November and February), officials have tried to make it a fun and comfortable place to transit through. If you've got time on your hands, hop on the free courtesy bus to Airport Village - a recreation, dining and retail complex located a few miles from the airport. The Village includes restaurants, beauty salons, department stores, and a high-tech Airport Experience Centre - meaning that you'll have plenty to occupy yourself with while waiting to board your flight.
The airport is situated eight miles (13km) northeast of Brisbane, and within easy driving distance of the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast.
Getting to the city
The Airtrain Rail Link departs every 15 minutes to and from the Brisbane Central Business District, taking around 20 minutes. There is also a direct link to the Gold Coast that takes 90 minutes. Coachtrans connects to Brisbane, as well as to the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast. Taxis, limousines and airport buses are also available from both terminals.
