Brisbane airport: Retail, dining and great accessibility

Brisbane airport is its own destination, with enough on offer to occupy anyone who passes through. If you have a while, you can visit the nearby Skygate complex and enjoy a massive range of retail outlets. Alternatively, you can settle into a restaurant or bar in the airport precinct and enjoy a quiet break from your travels. When it comes time to go, there is a great drop off/pick up point directly adjacent to the domestic terminal. This makes getting in and out of the airport very easy. At the international terminal, there’s a departures road on level 4 and an arrivals road on level 2. This means that congestion is normally at a minimum.
