If you're making your way to Brisbane in sunny Queensland in Australia on business soon, we've got some great news - you are in for probably one of the smoothest corporate journeys of your life! Brisbane is the third largest city in Australia and as a popular destination for business travelers from Asia, Europe, Africa and further afield, measures have been put in place to ensure that they give all their important visitors a warm welcome and enjoyable experience.
TravelManor has assisted many business travelers in tailoring corporate journeys to Brisbane and other Australian cities, so we know what it takes to keep things on an even keel when you head over to Aussie territory. Here are a few of our top tips for innovative travelers who want to enjoy a rewarding trip to Brisbane, Australia:
Looking for an environmentally-friendly way to get from the airport to the Brisbane CBD? Catch a ride on the AirTrain, which will ferry you to your destination in about 20 minutes at around $17 for a one-way trip. There are taxis available as well if you happen to touch down outside of scheduled train service times. These cost around $40.
TOP TIP: Once you’re in the city, it’s easy to get around via train, bus and ferry by purchasing a GO card which you can top up with credit and use to pay as you move from one destination to the next. This same card can be used on the hop-on/hop-off tour buses, so see if you can squeeze in a trip or two in between meetings.
If you need to get some work done in between meetings and would prefer to do so outside of your hotel room, there are plenty of vibrant co-working spaces to choose from in Brisbane. Here’s a handy tool to find a space that suits your requirements in the CBD or further afield.
It can be difficult to squeeze in sightseeing time in between business obligations some times, but we highly recommend that you see if you can find a way to open up a pocket of personal time here and there. Some of the city’s foremost visitor’s attractions include the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, the Cultural Precinct in South Bank, the Brisbane Botanic Gardens, the Queensland Art Gallery & Gallery of Modern Art, as well as Queen Street Mall.
