Brisbane airport is located a short distance from the CBD – around 14km to its north east. That places it about 70km from Hope Island, a well-known suburb of the Gold Coast. A distance like that isn’t one you would normally think twice about. However, travelling from the airport is a different story. Without a car, travelling 70km is something of a logistical challenge. That is compounded by the fact that, of the many available options, few transport solutions from Brisbane airport seem suitable. Sure, there are plenty of trains, buses, taxis, and hire cars. But the first two options are time consuming, and the latter two are prohibitively expensive. So where does that leave you? It leaves you with the clear best of the bunch: a private transfer from Hughes. At Hughes, we offer door to door service in our premium and luxury vehicles.

Planning is the foundation of travel. Whether you’re travelling abroad, or interstate, planning is key. That’s why we’ve listed some of the information we use to plan our trips. Hopefully, these insights help you plan out your day well before you’re underway.
Travel times are the first thing you need to know when you’re planning a trip. That’s why its useful to know that the trip from Hope Island to Brisbane airport, and vice versa, takes, on average, 60 to 80 minutes. The reason for that timeframe is usually traffic. Traffic can be a little unpredictable along the Pacific Motorway – Queensland’s busiest stretch of road. In fact, when it’s especially bad, traffic can see the travel times from Brisbane airport to Hope Island inflate to 90 minutes. Don’t worry though, that will be 90 minutes spent in luxury if you choose Hughes! If avoiding traffic is high on your list of priorities, we suggest aiming to book flights outside peak travel periods. When it’s quiet, the trip from Brisbane airport to Hope Island takes just 55 minutes.

Of course, before you hit the road you have to find your lift from the airport. And in some airports, that could be a mission in and of itself. Luckily, though, Brisbane airport is not one of them. Brisbane airport is famously easy to negotiate, with clear signage and an efficient pick up/drop off area. That area is located out the front of the domestic terminal. As a result, finding your ride simply involves a quick departure through the arrivals hall and into the pick up zone. If you’re in the international terminal, it’s a bit different – but just as easy. The international terminal has a pick up zone on level 2, and a drop off zone on level 4.
Hope Island is known for many things. One of them is its upscale gated community – the Hope Island Resort – and another is its abundant marinas, golf courses, and tennis facilities. But what a lot of people don’t know of Hope Island, is its history. Its name, for example, is derived from the colonial identity Captain Luis Hope, who developed Queensland’s now-thriving sugar industry. To immerse yourself in every aspect of Hope Island, reliable transport is key. And that’s just what you get with a Hughes transfer.
