Sunshine Coast Airport


Sunshine Coast Airport is centrally located by Marcoola Beach. The airport offers quick access to several of the Sunshine Coast's most popular destinations; Noosa is 30 kilometres to the north, Coolum Beach is 11 kilometres north, and Mooloolaba is located 14 kilometres south. Sunshine Coast Airport is one of the fastest-growing airports in Australia. There are more than one million Sunshine Coast Airport arrivals each year on average, but that number is set to increase in coming years. The airport is undergoing expansions to bring in more direct flights to destinations across Australia, the Pacific and Asia. Sunshine Coast Airport is also recognised as Australia’s first carbon neutral airport and has been awarded carbon neutral status four years in a row by the ACI Airport Carbon Accreditation Program.

Parking at Sunshine Coast Airport

Sunshine Coast Airport parking is available at three different car parks, right by the terminal. Book your park online in advance for cheaper rates.

ParkTerminal: ParkTerminal is the most convenient of the Sunshine Coast Airport parking options. The terminal entrance is directly across from the car park and about a minute walk away. Drive-up rates for ParkTerminal are $75 AUD for three days and $167 AUD for a week.

ParkCovered: Protect your car from the sun and rain in this covered Sunshine Coast Airport parking lot, which is a three-minute walk from the terminal. Drive-up rates are $75 AUD for three days and $175 AUD for a week.

ParkSaver: This budget-friendly car park is a four-minute walk from the terminal building. Drive-up rates for parking spaces cost $60 AUD for three days and $140 AUD for a week.

Pick-up and drop-off zones are located directly in front of the airport terminal. Note that cars can only stay parked here for a few minutes, so it’s meant for quick stops only. Cars can also access any of the car parks for free for the first 15 minutes for slightly longer goodbyes.

Shuttle and Public Transport

TransLink Bus: Route 622 of the local bus network makes a stop just to the right of the Sunshine Coast Airport arrivals hall. This is the first stop on the 622 route. The bus makes its way north stopping in towns like Marcoola and Coolum Beach before ending its journey in Noosa. Buses depart from Sunshine Coast Airport about once an hour.

Con-x-ion Shuttles: Schedule a door-to-door ride from Sunshine Coast Airport arrivals directly to your hotel. Reserve your shuttle in advance to cut down on wait times, but you can also visit the Con-x-ion desk adjacent to baggage claim in the arrivals hall.
