Brisbane is the capital city and the most populous city in the Australian state of Queensland. An Australian centre of business and finance, Brisbane city centre remains one of the busiest cities in Australia from dawn until dusk between Monday and Friday, though the city does tend to quieten down a little at the weekends.
With its hot and dry Australian climate, Brisbane is an increasingly popular destination for tourists, although it doesn’t yet receive the same volume of overseas cities as similar sized Australian cities, such as Sydney and Perth.
Because of its strong business and finance credentials, Brisbane has maintained a strong economy and the local government is seeking to expand its cultural outreach by investing money into both the tourist trade and diversity programmes.
With a host of tourist attractions already to its name, it is hoped that Brisbane will be a major Australian tourist destination within the next 5 years.
Arriving Brisbane Airport
Brisbane Airport is the primary airport serving Brisbane and the majority of South East Queensland. The 3rd busiest airport in Australia, it is located approximately 12km from downtown Brisbane and taxi cabs from the airport to the city centre are likely to charge around $18-$21 for the journey.
The size of the airport dictates that there is a huge volume of traffic passing through the terminals on a daily basis and airport processes and waiting times can be frustratingly long during busier times.
Facilities in the airport are quite numerous, with plenty of dining and shopping opportunities available.
Car rental queues are estimated to be among the lowest in Australia and once you have arrived through baggage collection, it shouldn’t be too long before you are leaving the airport and starting your vacation.
Driving In Brisbane
Despite the long, open spaced highways that much of Australia is famous for, high traffic levels in Brisbane can make driving in the city quite a daunting task for first-time drivers, particularly during business hours when the city centre can almost reach gridlock status.
Be sure to avoid the city centre between 8am-10am and 4pm-6pm, or there is every chance you will be caught up in the chaos.
Also be sure to read each set of parking meter instructions carefully when parking in the city. Many parking meters will only permit a very short stay, but will also keep taking your coins without giving refunds. Ensure that you understand each maximum stay allowance and do not spend more money that you must.
You may find it both easier and cheaper to park in one of the city’s many modern car park facilities. These are provided at an affordable rate for a full day’s parking, and many are securely guarded at all times.
Brisbane Driving Tips
- Drivers are responsible for all passengers wearing seatbelts. If pulled over, it is the driver who will be charged for failing to ensure that seatbelts are worn at all times.
- As with elsewhere in Australia, drink driving is strictly prohibited. You will be pulled over and charged if you attempt to drink while you are driving.
- Australian cars drive on the left side of the road. Only use the right lane while performing overtaking maneuvers.
- Children under the age of 12 cannot sit in the front seat of the car. Also, all children under the age of 8 must have a car seat or booster seat in order to travel.
