Flights to Brisbane
Queensland’s lush, tropical capital city has a character all its own, with everything from a thriving cultural scene to world-class bars and restaurants – all to be enjoyed at the city’s trademark laid-back pace.
What to know before you fly to Brisbane?
If you’re looking for a relaxing break in a friendly river city, time to book those flights to Brisbane.
Brisbane is the gateway to the wonders of Queensland, although the sheer size of the state is something many overseas visitors grapple with. If you want to explore Tropical North Queensland, for example, the best use of your time is to fly rather than drive.
Here are a few points to consider if you’re looking at flights to Brisbane: transport is convenient and easy, with trains to both the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast from the airport; Brisbane has a great climate although hot summers mean that afternoon thunderstorms are common; the city is very pedestrian-friendly with two bridges over the river exclusively for pedestrians and cyclists; and finally, rest assured that in Brisbane the coffee is very, very good.
