Brisbane Airport to Maroochydore
Maroochydore and surrounds are often considered the heart of the Sunshine Coast of Queensland and this is what makes them a popular destination for travellers from Brisbane Airport.
You will be met at the luggage carousel for domestic flights and in the arrivals hall (after customs and immigration) for international flights by our driver who will have a sign bearing your name and we will assist in getting the luggage from the carousel.
A short walk to the vehicle and we will be on our way with your luggage safely secure in the boot and you safely secure in either a Lexus or Audi luxury sedan (or Kia Carnival people mover for up to 7 passengers and luggage).
Sit back and relax as we exit Brisbane Airport grounds and join the Gateway Motorway for our trip North.
Sights along the way
The two-lane motorway takes us past Nudgee and the Brisbane Entertainment Centre and we join the Bruce Highway at the Pine Rivers Bridge.
The three lanes of the Bruce Highway carry us out past Forrest Lakes, Burpengary and when past the Bribie Island/Caboolture turnoff it is back to two lanes for the run to the Sunshine Motorway turnoff.
Duck your head and look out for low flying aircraft and gliders as we go past the Caboolture airstrip and travel on past the Glasshouse Mountains (only glimpses), Wild Horse Mountain and lots of pine trees.
Depending on traffic, we will take you on one of two routes from here. Either past the Caloundra turnoff, Aussie World Theme Park and the unique Aussie World Pub and take the Sunshine Motorway Turnoff or down the highway to the Nambour/Maroochydore Road. Either way we are heading East to Maroochydore and you will be taken to your final destination and assisted with your luggage to the door.
Travel time to Maroochydore will be about 1hr 25 minutes in normal traffic.
Peak hour traffic Northbound is from approx. 3.30pm Monday to Thursday and from 2.30pm Friday. The traffic delays are from the airport to Bribie island/Caboolture turnoff and it is free flowing from there. Allow another 30 minutes travel time during the week and 50 minutes Friday during peak times.
Peak hour traffic Southbound is from 5.30am to 8.30 and is in the same area as Northbound afternoon delays. Allow a further 30 minutes travel. The big exception to Southbound is Sunday afternoon (or Monday of a long weekend) when traffic congestion starts as early as Caloundra turnoff and continues for the journey right through to Bribie Island/Caboolture turnoff. This can add in excess of 1 hour to the journey.
The office will be aware of any roadwork or local delays (caused by school traffic or events) which may have a further bearing on travel times and adjust pickups to the airport accordingly. We will also keep you informed throughout your journey and the booking process.
