Travel time from Elizabeth St to Airport

Hi there,

I was wondering if someone could please give me an approximate time to travel from Elizabeth st to the airport? My flight leaves Brisbane at 6 so just trying to work out the best time to leave.

Thank you!

How are you planning to get there? Taxi or train? I'd be aiming to be departing your hotel no later than 430am (domestic flight). If you're catching a train, maybe leave 10-15mins earlier.

Hi KVE - I'm going to catch a cab there. I forgot to say that I'm leaving at 6pm - I'm not sure what traffic would be like but if I leave at 4, should that give me enough time?

Thanks for your help :)

Then I'd definitely wouldn't leave at 430am.

Personally, I'd leave by 4pm. No harm arriving early and grabbing a coffee.

You will be in fairly heavy traffic ... I am not a fan of the train but I would choose it at that time of day. The new tunnel makes the trip reasonably quick but it can take you some time to clear the inner city area.

I'm with able58. The traffic will be an absolute nightmare. Train will be 15 -20 minutes and take you right to the terminal.
