Getting Around in Brisbane

Edit This


Airport to City:  A shuttle bus runs between the airport and the Transit Centre about every half-hour till mid-evening. A taxi into the centre will cost about US$15-20 or alternatively there is the AirTrain which is AUD$10  (US$5) to the city.

Within Brisbane:  Trains, buses, citycats, cycling and walking are all cheap and easy ways to get around Brisbane itself. Public transport maps, fares and timetables as well as a journey planner can be found at - the daily ticket option allows unlimited travel on all forms of public transport within the zones you select. Citycats are fast and a fun way to enjoy a river cruise if you're skint (or on a "budget holiday") especially at night when you can see all the city lights. There is a free inner city bus loop (look for the red buses) stopping at major landmarks.

 In addition to normal city buses there are Cityxpress services which run between the city centre and the suburbs and Rockets (fast peak-hour commuter buses). The fast Citytrain network has seven lines with stations going to the Gold and Sunshine Coasts and there is an efficient ferry service along and across the Brisbane River. There is a riverside bicycle track from the city Botanic Gardens out to the University of Queensland.

More information can be found at including bike maps.

'City Sights' bus tour

Edit This

Must do, take a 'City Sights' bus tour to get to grips with the city. And if you're lucky you have a fabulous busdriver, who goes the 'extra mile', literally!
In between you can jump off and back on again at any stop.
Use your City Sights ticket to jump on the CityCat ferry (it's free, or rather included), back up the river, at night. Great view of Brisbane skyline at night.
