WikiVoyage has a fairly good section on getting from Brisbane Airport to the CBD (central business district), including things like the AirTrain and cheaper alternatives. For a daytime arrival, it looks to have everything covered!

Unfortunately for me, it looks like following a change of plans that I might be getting into Brisbane at a little after 11pm, so my previous research is of no help. I probably won't have cleared immigration and customs until after midnight, so the airtrain is out (22:02 from International looks to be the last service in the week), and I fear the free bus to the Airport Village may well have stopped long before too.

Are there any cheap ways into the CBD late at night from the airport? Or am I going to have to hope I can find enough people to share a taxi with to make it a moderately sensible price?

    @Calchas Ended up just getting a taxi, as Con-x-ion said they only took you to hotels not anywhere else, and Con-x-ion + onwards taxi was almost the same price and much more faff. Didn't seem to be any good general answers

You can try Con-x-ion. They do airport transfers to hotels in the CBD for about $36 return. They don't state what times they operate, so you may have to call them to confirm if they run that late.

  • A taxi would be close to that price. You'd only need to split a cab with one other person to be ahead of Con-x-ion. Commented Oct 12, 2013 at 8:54
  • Yeah, as far as alternatives, even public transport is hefty from Brisbane Airport. It really shouldn't be, but it is. That's Australian public transport for you though...
