Location and Transport

Rydges Hotel South Bank

Airport Transport Options

Rydges South Bank is a very short walk from the South Brisbane Train Station. This station is accessible on a direct service from the airport, from the Gold Coast, or from a number of other Brisbane suburbs. For those wishing to stay elsewhere in the city, this is also an excellent way to commute to the conference each day.

Shuttle Bus
Various Shuttle operators offer a Door to Door service from Brisbane Domestic and International Airport Terminals to South Bank. Group discounts are often available.

Taxis are a relatively inexpensive way to get to and from the airport. There is a designated taxi rank located out the front of both terminals, although one of the rideshare companies, such as Uber, may be slightly cheaper.

Rental Car
Hiring a rental car at Brisbane Airport gives you the freedom to control your own schedule and explore what Queensland has to offer. Car rental desks are located on the arrivals level at Brisbane International airport and the ground level adjacent to the Baggage Claim carousels at Brisbane Domestic airport.

The following companies have desks at the airport:
Sixt |
Europcar |
Hertz |
Thrifty |
RedSpot  |


Parking is available next door to the hotel at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre for $35.
