Brisbane Airport


Brisbane Airport welcomes tens of thousands of visitors to Queensland each year. It is Australia's third busiest airport and is the country's largest in terms of land area. The airport is located on the Moreton Bay waterfront and is only about 15 kilometres northeast of Brisbane's CBD – a 25-minute drive without traffic.

Brisbane Airport has been awarded dozens of awards and honours over the years for its operations and efforts in sustainability. Some of its recent honours include being ranked third 'Best Airport in the World' at the 2020 Skytrax World Airport Awards and being named 'Oceania's Leading Airport' at the 2019 World Travel Awards.
