Getting from Brisbane International Airport to Brisbane Cruise Terminal

Brisbane airport is located about 7km from the Portside Wharf Cruise Terminal (located at Hamilton). There are several options to get from the Brisbane Airport to the Brisbane Cruise Ship Terminal in Hamilton. They include cruise line bus transfer, private shuttle bus, private town car, taxi, and car rental. Below are the various modes of transportation between Brisbane Cruise Ship Terminal and the Brisbane International Airport, and some helpful advice for your consideration about each option. Check out all the transportation options to determine which mode of transport between the Brisbane Cruise Ship Terminal and Brisbane Airport is best fits your needs.

Taking a Taxi Cab between Brisbane Cruise Ship Terminal and Brisbane International Airport

Black & White Cabs and Yellow Cab Company are the two officially recognized taxi services found at the Brisbane International Airport. Taxi ranks are conveniently located at both the International and Domestic Terminals. At the Domestic Terminal, the taxi rank can be found in front of the terminal. At the International Terminal, the taxi rank is located the northern end of Arrivals on Level 2.


Taking a taxi cab between the Brisbane International Airport and Brisbane cruise ship terminal should run approximately 30 minutes and cost around 35 AUD for a 1-way trip. If you have 5 or 6 people in your group, ask the dispatcher for a larger vehicle (such as a van or Suburban). For an even larger group, you are better off taking a shuttle (Coachtrans) to the cruise ship port. To ensure you have a taxi waiting for you, it is recommended to reserve in advance, however please note that there is a nominal fee for advance booking. 

Here are typical taxi fees:
Booking fee: $1.40 (phone or electronic bookings)
Weekday flagfall: $2.70 (Monday to Friday, approx. 7am to 7pm)
After hours flagfall: $4.00
After midnight flagfall: $6.00 
Distance: $1.87 per kilometre

Taking a Shared Private Shuttle between Brisbane Cruise Ship Terminal and Brisbane International Airport

Generally, shared private shuttles (offered by Coachtrans Australia) between the Brisbane Airport and Brisbane cruise ship terminal are economical if you have a larger group. You can reserve for a van, shuttle or limo through Coachtrans, and they will take you directly to the port. Coachtrans operates services every 30 minutes to Brisbane Cruise Terminal. Coachtrans Australia is the Brisbane Airports only licensed bus operator. Coachtrans meets all flights, Domestic and International, and offers a door to door service. The facilities include continuously staffed customer service counters, information services to arriving passengers, exclusive curbside parking for easy passenger access, air-conditioned buses operating on a door-to-door basis, 7 days a week, one way or return.

Taking a Rental Car between Brisbane Cruise Ship Terminal and Brisbane International Airport

There are six (6) rental car companies (also called "car hire suppliers") with locations at the airport in Brisbane. You can get a rental car between the Brisbane Cruise Ship Terminal and Brisbane Airport, and your most reasonable options can be secured by calling the individual car rental agency. In the International Terminal, the car rental customer service desks are located on level 2 and in the Domestic Terminal on ground level. Avis, Budget, Europcar, Hertz, Redspot, and Thrifty currently provide service at the Brisbane International Airport. Most rental agencies offer vehicle sizes from compact to SUV.

Taking a Town Car between Brisbane Cruise Ship Terminal and Brisbane International Airport

A chauffeur-driven town car between Brisbane Cruise Ship Terminal and Brisbane International Airport can be stress-free option, though probably the most expensive. You ride in a nicer vehicle and don't have to bother with waiting for other people to board. For 4 people going between the airport and cruise ship terminal, this is as economical as the taxi option. Larger vechicles (Suburbans) are available for an additional charge for larger parties. Again, we suggest reserving your town car well in advance!

Money Saving Advice when Buying a Cruise from Brisbane

  • Best advice we can give: the earlier you book, the better. Prices for early bookers tend to be lower, and, the best cabins out of Brisbane may sell out early. 
  • High season for cruises from Brisbane is "whenever the kids" are out of school. Christmas, Spring Break, Thanksgiving and Summer are when the prices tend to be highest. Lower prices prevail in September (when kids go back to school), right after Thanksgiving, and in January thru February when the kids return to school.  
  • We show all discounts. Rest assured, when you search for cruises on our site, we will ask questions that will qualify you for the best available rate – are you over 55, active or retired military, past passenger, where you live all to help search out any promotional rates for which you may be eligible.
