Brisbane Airport lies about 14km northeast of the city centre, which places it a good 170km south of Gympie. That doesn’t mean you’re stuck for options, though. There are established public transport routes between Gympie and Brisbane, to cater for the many travellers that pass between the two destinations every week. For example, there are trains and shuttles that can take you from Brisbane to Gympie at reasonable prices. However, they can be time consuming journeys – all public transport options need to make numerous stops, and there are often transfers involved too. A much more direct option is a chauffeured transfer from Hughes. At Hughes we offer twenty four hour transfers from Gympie to Brisbane Airport and vice versa. Our services are private, and direct, which means that they are among the quickest options available; you won’t be stopping along the way unless you want to.

Because it’s a long trip from Brisbane Airport to Gympie, it’s important to know what to expect. Our drivers have completed the journey many times, and we’ve been able to draw from their experience to come up with a few tips. Here’s what you should know before your journey to Gympie.
The Bruce Highway will take you from Brisbane to Gympie, and when you leave from the airport the highway is just a short distance north. Recent upgrades have meant that travel times between Brisbane Airport and Gympie have improved significantly, so you can expect an average journey of only 115 minutes. Of course, that varies significantly according to traffic conditions, roadworks, and even weather.
If there is a lot of holiday traffic on the highway, then it might take you a bit longer at around 120 minutes. On the other hand, it could take as few as 11 minutes to travel from Brisbane Airport to Gympie on a quiet day. Regardless of the conditions, though, you can rest assured that a Hughes transfer remains the quickest option available.
When you touch down in Brisbane Airport, your Hughes transfer will be ready and waiting. You just need to get there from your gate. We can pre-arrange to meet you at a convenient location in the airport, such as the arrivals hall, where you will also find your luggage on the carousel. There are no shortage of options, though, with both terminals well serviced by parking areas, waiting bays, and kerbside collection points. There are also disabled access zones for those who need them. To be sure that we are ready when you arrive, we will track your flight and take into account any delays or variations in your arrival time.
Gympie is an iconic regional Queensland town, and it has a lot to offer. It was first made famous when gold was discovered in the area, at which point pioneers flocked to the area with hopes of striking it rich. Many remained, too, when it was discovered to be an easily arable area, with vast expanses suitable for livestock and crops. It’s only thirty minutes from Tin Can Bay, as well, where you can hand-feed dolphins, or simply take in the wonders of the Great Sandy Biosphere.
In fact, the coastal stretches adjacent to Gympie are all listed on the UNESCO register of world conservation sites. For a bit of culture, just head 25km up the road to Amamoor, where you’ll find Australia’s largest outdoor country music festival: the National Music Muster.
