Melbourne to Brisbane – 2 hour 10 minutes

Airlines that fly from Melbourne to Brisbane are Jetstar, Virgin Australia and Qantas.

There are four airports in Melbourne, with Melbourne Airport (MEL) at Tullamarine by far the busiest, and the major airport for all domestic and international flights. Melbourne Airport is approximately 23km to the northwest of the city centre. If you’re departing on a domestic flight from Melbourne Airport, you’ll most likely leave from T1, T3 or T4; Qantas arrives and departs from T1, T3 is reserved for Virgin Australia passengers, and all remaining airlines fly from T4. While there is no direct rail link between the airport and the city, there are a number of reliable options for transport such as taxi, rideshare, shuttle bus, public bus, private transfer service – even helicopter if you feel like a splurge. A typical taxi fare from Flinders Street in the Melbourne city centre to the airport in non-peak hour traffic takes around 30 minutes and will cost between $45 and $62.

Brisbane Airport (BNE) is located roughly 14km northeast of the city centre and gives you a number of options for travelling to the city and beyond. It’s well connected by rail, with the Airtrain, which can also take you to the Gold Coast. Brisbane Airport also has three excellent hotels in the immediate vicinity. Read more about Brisbane Airport (BNE), including all the transport alternatives and what you can look forward to at Brisbane Airport hotels, should you decide to take it easy when you arrive.

While Queensland is known for its great climate and remains a beautiful destination any time of year, the weather in Brisbane can sometimes surprise you with its unpredictability. The best time to visit Brisbane will ultimately depend on what you wish to see and do.


You can expect high temperatures and humidity in Brisbane over the summer months, with temperatures generally reaching between 31 and 33 degrees Celsius. Summer can also bring with it some afternoon/evening thunderstorms, so don’t count on perfect swimming weather every day.

Appropriate clothing: Shorts and short-sleeved shirts

Don’t forget: Sunscreen, a hat, and an umbrella


Autumn in Brisbane is usually the most comfortable time of year, with sunny days aplenty as the storm season eases off. While autumn days are generally clear and warm, by May, evening temperatures can drop down to around 12-14 degrees Celsius, so always pack an extra layer to beat the autumn chill!

Appropriate clothing: Shorts and short-sleeved shirts

Don’t forget: A light jacket for cooler evenings


Brisbane generally experiences mild winters, with low humidity and average daily temperatures of around 21-23 degrees Celsius. The evenings, however, can get quite cool, dropping to around 3-8 degrees. If you’re hitting the town at night in winter, be sure to layer up. August is a great time to visit if you want to avoid the school holiday crowds.

Appropriate clothing: Jeans and a light jacket

Don’t forget: Your warm winter pyjamas!


With an abundance of sunshine and the purple blooms of Jacaranda trees dotting the streets, spring is lovely in Brisbane. This is also a great time to take a day trip to Moreton Bay and see the whales migrating. The Riverfire Festival takes place in September too, so you’ll have plenty of things to do and see in Brisbane during springtime.

Appropriate clothing: Shorts and short-sleeved shirts

Don’t forget: Your camera to catch Brisbane in full bloom and families of whales migrating
