Touching down and taking off: Your guide to Brisbane airport pick ups and drop offs

Before you get to your airport transfer, you’ll have to negotiate Brisbane airport. Don’t worry though – that’s as easily said as it’s done! Brisbane airport is comprised of two terminals: the domestic and the international. If you’re arriving from interstate, you’ll only need to worry about the domestic terminal. Simply follow the signs to the arrivals hall, and you’ll find yourself right next to the exit. From there, it’s simply a matter of going to the departures and arrivals road adjacent to the terminal. If you’re arriving from overseas, you’ll have to go the level 2 arrivals road to find your Sunshine Coast transfer. If you’re leaving internationally, you’ll have to go the level 4 departures road.

Sunshine Coast: From the beaches to the hinterland

The Sunshine Coast is as diverse a holiday destination as you’ll find anywhere. Its subtropical beaches quickly become cool grassy hills in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. In the same day you can soak in the sun, swim in the surf, and sightsee in the glowing green hinterland forests. In terms of retail and dining opportunities, you have an entire stretch of coastline at your disposal. In it, there’s Caloundra, Cooloola, and the famous Noosa just to name a few. Needless to say, you’ll need reliable transport just to scratch the surface. That’s why a Hughes transfer is the perfect option. We can drop you off and pick you up across the entire Sunshine Coast region.
