Please note that some published services and schedules may be subject to change. 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 about to board.
Spending the night at the airport

Brisbane airport operates numerous flights and connections, which means it's busy even at night. For this reason, it's advisable to bring headphones or earplugs if you want to rest.

Where to rest: The seats in the Domestic Terminal have armrests and can be uncomfortable. In contrast, in the International Terminal, you'll find comfortable chairs in both the public areas and boarding halls, especially on the fourth floor and near gates 75-76. There is also a prayer room on this level that offers a quiet place to sleep. Another option is to enter one of the VIP lounges, although these are closed at night. There is also a hotel in the Skygate building, next to the enclosure.

Baggage: There are lockers available in both terminals and in the Skygate Centre to store your bags until check-in time.

Eating and drinking: During the night, you will only find vending machines.

Restrooms: Public access showers can be found on level 2 of the Arrivals Hall and level 3 of the International Terminal, after security and passport control, and near gates 26 and 36 of the Domestic Terminal.
