Brisbane Airport Night Arrivals
COVID-19 Pandemic & This Website
The COVID-19 Pandemic has had a huge impact on local Gold Coast businesses, which rely heavily on visitors from Queensland, interstate and overseas.
During this time, it is hard to keep the website fully up to date with all the changes. In the meantime here are some resources for visitors. Our main booking partners for hotels and for tours, tickets, theme parks and activities are keeping everything up to date, so please use those resources in the meantime.
Travel Information for Queensland Visitors - Queensland Tourist Safety Information - regularly updated, official website.
COVID-19 FAQ's For Activities, Tours, Cruises & Theme Park Tickets - General Ticket & Pass FAQs and COVID-19 Travel Update.
Thank you for your understanding and patience at this really difficult time.

What To Do Brisbane Airport Night Arrivals
If your flight arrives in late to Brisbane and you have to travel to the Gold Coast you have two main options. Stay overnight in a hotel near the airport or make your way to the Gold Coast straightaway.
My personal preference is to get to my destination as quickly as possible and most Gold Coast accommodation is between 1 hour and 1 hour 40 minutes from Brisbane Airport.
My reasoning is that until I get to my ultimate destination, I don't really feel like I am on holiday! By going straight to my final accommodation I only have to:
This way I am at my holiday destination ready to start really holidaying when I get up in the morning. Granted it might be a little later start, but I'd rather get to my end destination and get settled in.
How To Get To The Gold Coast Late After Brisbane Airport Night Arrivals?
The Airtrain service which normally runs between the airport and Brisbane City and then on to the Gold Coast doesn't run 24 hours a day, so if you arrive after about 6.30pm you need to organise another option to get from the airport.
Another tip regardless of whether you stay near the airport or travel to the Gold Coast is to let your accommodation know you are going to be arriving late. By letting them know what time to expect you, they can arrange for you to get into your accommodation.
If you are staying in a larger hotel that is not likely to be a problem, but many of the apartment buildings don't run 24 hour receptions.
