Going to and from the airports

Flights from Melbourne

Melbourne is the world's most liveable city and the capital of the Australian state of Victoria. It's also home to Melbourne Airport, the second busiest airport in Australia. Among the city's many attractions, the most raved about ones include the Royal Botanic Gardens, the MCG and the National Gallery of Victoria.

The Melbourne Airport operates direct flights from Melbourne to Brisbane. You'll be coming from the T1 (at the northern end of the building), T3 (at the southern end of the terminal precinct) or T4 (at the far southern end of the terminal precinct) depending on which airline you'll be flying with.

Directions to Melbourne airport

Melbourne Airport is roughly 25 km northwest of the central business district. The most convenient way to get there is via the Skybus service, which runs 24/7. This express shuttle service can take you between the airport and the Coach Terminal at Southern Cross Station in the central business district. A cheaper alternative would be to take a local bus from Broadmeadows and Sunbury station. While the fare and duration of the journey would depend on the traffic, taxis are also a good way to get to the airport. Ride sharing and carpooling is made possible through the rideshare site Coseats.

Reaching Brisbane

They say that Queensland is "Beautiful one day, perfect the next!" which is exactly how one can describe its state capital, Brisbane. Spending some time on South Bank Parklands is a must, and is where you will find charming restaurants and cafés, a man-made beach, the Wheel of Brisbane and the Queensland Cultural Centre. Feel like cuddling a koala? Stop by the world's first and largest koala sanctuary to meet various Australian fauna like wombats, Tasmanian devils and kangaroos. If you'd rather get the adrenaline pumping, knock yourself out with the many outdoor activities available at the Riverlife Adventure Centre.

Getting to the city center

If you're flying in from Melbourne you'll arrive at Brisbane Airport located roughly 12 km from the city. Not only does Airtrain provide convenient transfers between the passenger terminals, but it also operates between the airport, Brisbane City and the Gold Coast. These locations are also covered by the door-to-door coach services provided by Con-X-ion Airport Transfer.

For utmost convenience you can always arrange pick-up service by Uber or grab a taxi! The international terminal's taxi rank is located at the northern end of arrivals, while the domestic terminal's taxi rank is located just at the front.
