Journey: Brisbane Airport to Redcliffe

The transition from Brisbane to the Moreton Bay region is marked by Redcliffe. And that is evident in Redcliffe’s feeling of coastal solitude – despite its short distance from the Brisbane CBD. Redcliffe is among the larger hubs or Moreton Bay, too. That means it is serviced by a range of public transport options. But utilising any of them from Brisbane airport is sure to be time consuming. Surprisingly, as well, it can be quite expensive. Train fares from Brisbane airport to Redcliffe are not insignificant, and spread between a group they begin to add up. The same goes for buses, of which you will need to catch numerous to get from Brisbane airport to Redcliffe.

So what are your other options? Taxis are too expensive for most to catch from Redcliffe to Brisbane, and vice versa. The same goes for hire cars. That’s why the perfect solution is a Hughes transfer. Our transfers combine the service of professional chauffeurs, with a fleet of premium and luxury vehicles. And the price – on par with all the alternatives!

But, as the airport takes you straight to the Gateway Motorway, it’s a painless journey. It also takes much the same time in both directions. That means you can adopt more or less the same plans going from Redcliffe to Brisbane airport as you can in the other direction.

Enjoying the facilities at Brisbane airport: where to meet your Redcliffe transfer

Brisbane airport offers no shortage of things to do. In a way, it’s its own attraction. But, we’re prepared to bet that you don’t exactly have plans to stick around. So here’s how to get out of Brisbane airport, and into your Redcliffe transfer. Starting with the domestic terminal, your approach is simple: head out to the combined pick up and drop off area. You can get there easily via the arrivals hall, where you can collect your luggage. If you’re in the international terminal, just go to level 2; that’s where the arrivals hall and luggage collection is. It’s also where you’ll find the arrivals pick up road.

What to do and see in Redcliffe before you head back to Brisbane airport

If you’re only in Redcliffe for a little while, you may be wondering what to do. Well, we’re pleased to say there’s no shortage. Among Redcliffe’s attractions is the Anzac Memorial Avenue, Sunday jetty markets, coastal views, and even a Bee Gees walk of honour. Few people realise that the Bee Gees in fact originated in Redcliffe, but a visit to the monument in their honour will soon teach you all you need to know of their origins. Regardless of how you choose to spend your time in Redcliffe, Hughes has transport solutions for you. We can collect you anywhere, at any time of the day or night, and take you anywhere too.
