Journey: Brisbane Airport To Caloundra

Few towns do the Sunshine Coast such justice as Caloundra. Caloundra is the perfect embodiment of the relaxed, coastal lifestyle that the entire Sunshine Coast region is famous for. So it’s no surprise that we see a lot of travellers heading from Brisbane airport to Caloundra. Some choose to take the bus; others choose to catch the train. But we have found, again and again, that public transport is not always the best choice. When getting from Brisbane airport to Caloundra, public transport can be costly – especially for groups.

How do you get through the airport to meet your Brisbane to Caloundra transfer?

Getting around in the thriving hub that is Brisbane airport might be intimidating for some. But it needn’t be! Brisbane airport is very efficient, and getting around is just a matter of following the signs. To get to your collection point in the domestic terminal, all you need to do is exit the terminal. Directly in front, there is a length collection road. This doubles as a drop off road, too. That means leaving will be just as easy as your arrival is! Of course, things are a little different in the international terminal. You’ll have to go to the level 2 arrivals road to meet your transfer. And when the time comes to depart, you’ll need to go to the level 4 departures road.

What is there to do and see in Caloundra, before you head back to Brisbane airport?

It’s nearly impossible to list all the possible activities and sights of Caloundra. After all, it is home to some of the best beaches in Queensland. But if we had to prioritise, we would place Kings Beach and Caloundra Headland towards the top of the list. There are also Bulcock Beach, Shelly Beach, and Moffat Beach to consider though, so don’t lock your plans in too early! If you’re interested in heading a little further afield, you can also visit the spectacular Glasshouse Mountains, and enjoy one of many bushwalks in the area. Whatever you choose to do, you can choose it in the knowledge that we have your transport covered.
