Brisbane Airport parking
Brisbane Airport is the main international airport for South East Queensland including the Gold Coast and Brisbane city, and it has more than 31 airlines including China Airlines. There are two terminals, the domestic terminal and the international terminal. You’ll need to get the complimentary AIRPARK transfer bus or a taxi between the two terminals, which takes about 15 minutes. Follow signs to the bus stop to transfer from the international terminal to the domestic terminals. It's a short walk from the terminal and the shuttle buses are operated regularly. Our car park providers have drop off points at both of the terminals so you can make the short walk to the check in desks and start your journey. Brisbane Airport is planning on opening a new runway in 2020 as it's an international airport and they want to be able to facilitate more flights, which means the airport will be busier and the demand for airport parking will increase and will be able to offer more international destinations.
The airport has multiple parking lots which are all located at the airport. Every parking lot belongs to a different terminal and has its own colour. This creates an overview that is easy to follow. It is possible to make a reservation online, however, you will pay much more compared to when you make a reservation at one of the parking providers from Parkos. Book online with your credit card to secure your booking.
