Before we get started, it’s important to define what short term parking is, and what it isn’t. When it comes to Brisbane Airport short term parking, ‘short term’ refers to stays of four hours or less - enough time to drop-off or pick up friends and family from the terminal, and grab a bite to eat. Any shorter, and you’d be better off using the free pick-up and drop-off kerbside zone, and any longer, and your stay would fall under long term parking. As such, short term parking costs are calculated per hour, as opposed to per day, and are often much more expensive than long term rates, due to the added convenience of being able to park within walking distance of the terminal. 


Short Term Parking by the Terminals 

If you’d prefer to park close to the terminals, your best option is ParkShort - BNE’s official short term car park. Located right behind the terminal buildings, ParkShort is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It’s ideal for stays of up to four hours in length, with prices starting at $5.00 for half an hour. The maximum you’ll pay for a four-hour stay is $10.00, however it would be well worth considering booking long term parking after this point, as stays between 4 - 24 hours can get pretty expensive at this car park. These prices cover parking at both the Domestic and International Terminal. To compare rates, please consult the table below:

2 - 3 hours$30.00
3 - 4 hours$31.00
4 - 24 hrs$59.00
Each additional day$55.00


Pick-up & Drop-off Zone

There are two free pick-up and drop-off kerbside zones at Brisbane Airport - one by the Domestic Terminal and one by the International Terminal. These zones are reserved for drivers who have a passenger who is immediately ready to be dropped-off or picked-up. It’s not possible to wait in these zones, and anyone found loitering for more than two minutes will be asked to move on by a Kerbside Officer. 

If you need longer than a couple of minutes to wait for your passenger, or would like to say a longer goodbye, your best option is to park at the Park Short car park, or wait in the Domestic Terminal waiting area, next to the P2 Long Term car park, which is free for 30 minutes. If you want to take advantage of the free waiting area, you’ll need to ask your passenger to text or call you when they arrive at the pick-up and drop-off zone, so that you can drive back around to meet them on your way out. 


Alternative Parking Options

If price is your primary concern, you may want to consider booking into a park and ride car park for a few hours. These car parks are often considerably cheaper than the lots nearer the terminals, they do require you to catch a shuttle bus to/from the airport. While this might not be what you had in mind when it comes to pick-ups and drop-offs, park and ride car parks are ideal for weekend getaways and trips of 24 hours or more. You’ll be able to access considerably lower rates than if you simply drove up to the airport on your day of travel, and start your journey free from the stress of trying to find an empty space. To get an idea of how much you can expect to pay for one or two days of off-site parking, please check the table below:
