Air Train

by isabella1976

Hi there!

I am trying to book tansportation from brisbane Airport to a hotel in Surfers Paradise called Courtyard by Marrioot. I think the nearest station is one called Nerang. Does anyone have any idea how far away that station is from Surfers Paradise Blvd & Corner Hanlan Streets?

Other question is: has anyone used a shuttle service called Con-X-ion from Brisname Airport and were they any good?

Thanks very much in advance :o)

Local buses meet all the trains coming into Nerang and will take you to Surfers Paradise. The Marriott Hotel is very central so there is bound to be a bus stop somewhere near to it. Just ask the driver. The Shuttle buses from Brisbane airport are certainly good but unfortunately, quite expensive. The last Air train from the Airport to the Gold Coast is at 10pm, you will need to check if the buses from the station at Nerang still run to meet the last train. I would think so. Timetables for Surfside Buses here:

Please note that where it says "Depart Central Station" that is one of the City stops where the Air Train goes through from the Airport, you would board the train at the Airport sometime before that. As you will see however, the trains are quite regular and you can always ask somebody if you are unsure. We don't bite here in Brisbane, in fact we quite like being asked for directions. Enjoy the Gold Coast

Just to simplify matters, the Bus Route number you will need when you get to Nerang is the #745. Be sure to get on the right one as there are bound to be quite a few buses at the station, all going in different directions.

The Con-X-ion bus will take you all the way from Brisbane airport to your hotel
Have used this bus many times and it's the best way to go from air port to hotel

Travel Tips for Brisbane

Take an extensive walk around...

by Kai112DE

Take an extensive walk around the city! That way you discover most of the places... even without a city map ( coz i lost mine somehow...) The skyline! The best place is from the other side of the river (South Bank)...
That black skyscraper somehow reminded me of Gotham City... wonder why!!!

I love going to Dream World!...

by WorldXplorer

I love going to Dream World! There are some fabulous theme parks in Sufers' Paradise and if this is your theme, I reccommend you visit some! Some pics of Sea World to follow. Dream World has some GREAT adrenaline pumping rides! The 'Tower of Terror' goes about 160 Ks fast and goes backwards too! You have a free-fall ride and The WipeOut which tips you upside down and all sorts of angles! The Enterprise felt like I was flying but a bit of a head-spinner I found. There are heaps of rides for kids and are shows, especially ones for kids and a tiger show, which I loved. Also a chance to see native animals, and I got to cuddle a koala! She felt so soft and cute! I love the weather. Sometimes in Summer I personally find it a bit too hot but nice in Winter! I loved lots of things over here, mainly that I found there was quite a lot for me to do! It's too hard to choose! THE PICTURE BELOW IS OF THE WIPE OUT RIDE.

More hot than not!

by amandajayne81

An umbrella can be handy as afternoon storms can pop out of nowhere.
It is only slightly chilly even in Winter in Brisbane although the city can have some cold wind tunnels in some streets. So bring a jacket or jumper in June July August but in summer the heat is more of a problem so dress cool.

Queensland Cultural Centre - Modern Brisbane.

by Jerelis

If the essence of modern Brisbane is a new sense of sophistication then the Queensland Cultural Centre in some ways sums up the city's new aspirations.

Brisbane does not enjoy a reputation as an important home of the arts (in fact southerners tend to regard it as the home of philistinism and anti-intellectualism). It may be a reaction to this criticism which led the city to construct Australia's finest cultural complex which was opened to coincide with the Brisbane World Expo in 1988. This superb complex now includes the Queensland Art Gallery, the Performing Arts Complex, the Queensland Museum and the State Library.

Queen Street, Brisbane

Discover the ENDANGERED AUSTRALIAN BILBY

by balhannah

Located in Queen's Park, Ipswich, is an Animal and Bird (Ipswich Nature Centre) enclosure that you can visit for FREE.

In July, 2009, a new addition, the silky, grey furred BILBY was added.

Known for their silky grey fur, and they are so cute!!..... four endangered Bilbies have been given a new chance at life in the custom-built habitat.
The bilby is a nocturnal marsupial that has large ears, a silky light grey and white coat and a long black and white tail. They have a long snout and well-developed sense of smell to aid in finding food.

The bilby is a bandicoot, has large, hairless ears, which are extremely useful for listening for predators.
The bilby does most of its foraging at night. One of the bilby's favourite plant foods is the bush onion or yalka that grows in desert sand plains after fires.
The bilby can burrow down two metres.

The enclosure contains a computer controlled environment which tricks the animals into believing night is day and day is night.
There were two on display, one was 2years old, and the other, Huge for a Bilby, was 4 years old. The Keeper told us, that they don't usually grow as big as the 4yo.

YOU ARE PRETTY LUCKY IF YOU SEE A BILBY, AS THEY ARE AN ENDANGERED SPECIES, AND NOT ON SHOW IN A LOT OF PLACES.

You can now see the nocturnal creatures at the Ipswich Nature Centre from Tuesday to Sunday between 9.30am and 4pm.

TRANSPORT.....Regular trains run to Ipswich from Brisbane, the trip takes about 50 minutes from Central Station.

LOCATION......Queens Park, Milford Street, Ipswich
