Getting to ACRA from BNE Airport

  • Uber: The fastest way to get from BNE to the UQ campus.  About 30-40 min and will cost about $50
  • Public transport: Aim for UQ Lakes station.  The procedure is to take the Gold Coast airport train to Park Road station –then–> transfer to a bus towards UQ (tip: this means crossing the busway, most buses will terminate at UQ Lakes, just ask to be certain).  This 50-60 minutes and will cost about $25.
