Brisbane is well connected by air and it is increasingly affordable to fly here.
Brisbane Airport is about 16km northwest of the city centre and is comprised of two terminals – domestic and international – located 2km apart.
The easiest way to the airport is by the Air Train. The Air Train runs to the city centre four times an hour and to the Gold Coast twice an hour. The trip between the airport and the city centre takes 22 minutes and costs $16.50. Many hostels sell discounted tickets for the Air Train.
Alternatively, Con-X-ion Airport Transfers run mini buses into central Brisbane that cost $15–20 each way.
