Getting from Brisbane Airport to your hotel

Brisbane

The quickest way from the airport to the CBD is to take the Airport Link and M3. This route takes about 20 minutes (other options are 5 minutes or so longer) but includes tolls.

You’ll find that most hotels in Brisbane and the nearby suburbs have free parking for their guests. Street parking is easy to find in Brisbane, but may require a ticket depending on where you’ve stopped.

Gold Coast

Rather than staying in Brisbane, you may prefer to head an hour south to Gold Coast to enjoy its beautiful beaches and thriving dining scene. The most direct route is along the M1, but for a toll-free drive you should take the M3 for the first part of the journey. This adds 15 minutes to your trip but makes your journey cheaper.

Once in the Gold Coast, your hire car will make visits to the theme parks and other inland attractions a lot easier to manage.

Toowoomba

To complete the 2-hour drive to Toowoomba, head south on the Warrego Highway and turn onto the A2. Once you’re on the A2, head west until you reach your destination. Like other routes from this airport, you’ll find tolls on this journey.
