Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, all regular services and hours may be subject to change. Thus, if the idea is to spend the night in the public area, consider a plan B in case the stay inside the airport is only allowed for those who are close to boarding.
Spending the night at the airport
Brisbane airport operates with many flights and connections, so movement is usually constant, even through the night. That is why it is recommended to have headphones or earplugs if you wish to get some rest.
Where to rest: Seats in the Domestic Terminal have armrests and are uncomfortable. On the other hand, inside the International Terminal there are comfy couches both in the public area and in the boarding halls, and especially on the fourth floor and next to gates 75-76. On this level you will also find a prayer room, which is a quiet place where you can get some sleep. You can also enter one of the VIP lounges, although these close at night. Besides that, in the Skygate building, situated next to the enclosure, there is a hotel.
Baggage: Lockers are available in both terminals so you can leave your bags until check-in time.
Eating and drinking: In addition to vending machines, there is only a McDonald's open throughout the night in the service center and Woolworths in Skygate.
Restrooms: You can find showers open to the public inside both terminals.
Wi-Fi: Free and unlimited.
Other services available around the clock: ATMs, supermarket, baby changing facilities, prayer room.
The Novotel Brisbane Airport is located inside the Skygate building, next to the airport, while in the city centre you can find more options, some of them with shuttle services.
