Brisbane Airport Parking
Brisbane airport has four official car parks. There is one multi-level at the international terminal and two multi-level at the domestic terminal, all of which are a short walk from the terminal buildings. The fourth is called Airpark, which is a ground level long-stay car park with a twenty-four-hour shuttle bus serving both terminals.
International Terminal - The car park at the international terminal is a three to five-minute walk from the terminal building and is accessed by a covered walkway. There are options for short-term and long-term parking, with long-stay recommended for anything over four hours.
The car park uses bay finding technology making it easy for users to find a space. There is a height limit of 2.3 meters, but vehicles over this height can enter via a different entrance to an open parking area. Rental car parking is on level one.
Domestic Terminal - The two car parks at the domestic terminal are P1, a three to five-minute walk from the terminal, and P2, a five to ten-minute walk, both with access via a sky bridge.
P1 has car rental parking on level one, short-stay parking on levels two to five and long-stay on levels six to nine. P2 is for long-term parking on all levels and can be accessed from P1. The height limit is 2.25 meters, but an open-air car park is available for over height vehicles.
Airpark - The Airpark is a single level, long-term car park with open and covered parking spaces with no height restrictions. This is the cheapest long-stay parking option. The shuttle bus runs every ten to fifteen minutes between 05:00 to 21:30, and approximately every twenty-five minutes at other times. The transfer takes five minutes.
Short-Term - Short-stay parking costs AU$4.00 per 15 minutes up to 30 minutes; AU$17.00 for 30 to 60 minutes; AU$21.00 for 1 to 2 hours; AU$26.00 for 2 to 3 hours; and AU$27.00 for 3 to 4 hours. For stays longer than 4 hours, use the long-stay car park.
Long-Term - In the long-term car parks, it is AU$2.00 for the first 15 minutes. 4 to 24 hours is AU$55.00; 2 days AU$75.00; 1 week is AU$155.00; 9 days for AU$175.00; then each subsequent days are AU$12.00 each.
Airpark - Airpark is AU$6.00 per hour for up to 4 hours, AU$20.00 per day for the first 2 days; AU$99.00 for 1 week; then AU$10.00 for each subsequent day.
There are significant discounts for booking online. If you have booked in advance, you must enter and leave the car park using the same credit card you made the booking with.
Additional Parking Services
"Parkvalet", a valet parking service, is available at the international terminal car park and on level three of P1 at the domestic terminal via an express ramp. You drive to the valet office, hand over your keys and your car will be parked for you while you head straight to check-in. With "Parkvalet", you can choose an optional car wash service.
In P1, "Parkpremium" enables you to park in the most convenient spaces close to the sky bridge. This offers the fastest access to the terminal.
