Local Information

From the city centre...

Brisbane has integrated ticketing: a two-zone ticket will let you travel between university and the city by train, bus, or high-speed catamaran ("City Cat"). Return paper tickets are the best value since they function as an all-day pass and are only twice the cost of a single ticket. (Do not get a go card unless you're planning a long visit during which you make no more than two trips a day).

City Cat. All have free wireless. There is a ferry stop at Toowong at the Regatta Hotel and four ferry termini downtown: North Quay, South Bank, Gardens Point, or Eagle St. From any of these take the upriver ferry to The University of Queensland stop (see this map). City Cats leave every half-hour off-peak, and far more often during peak times, see the City Cat timetable.

Bus. With the opening of the Green Bridge there are now two bus corridors to UQ.

East corridor—this is by far the quickest option.
* Take the 109 to the UQ Lakes Stop: services depart every eight minutes during peak times and ten minutes during off-peak times on weekdays; every 20 minutes on weekends. Start from Stop 16 on Adelaide St or the East platform of Cultural Centre Bus Station (South Bank). (109 timetables & maps).

West corridor
* The 402, 411, 412 or N412 buses to Chancellor's Place, UQ. One leaves every 20 minutes or so. Catch this from Stop 40 on Adelaide St (outside the Broadway arcade). (411 timetable; 402, 412, N412 timetables; both include maps).
* The 444 BUZ to Toowong (Benson St Stop, near Glen Rd). The 444 leaves at least every 10 minutes during peak times, at least every 15 minutes during off-peak times, seven days a week. As described above for the trains, from Toowong you can either catch the bus, City Cat, or walk. Catch this from King George Square Station, 1A. (444 timetable & map)..

Train. There are two train corridors to UQ. The west corridor is longer, but faster, and—tip for a hot day—it involves much less walking!

East corridor
Take a train that runs on the Beenleigh, or Yeerongpilly lines (the SE red line in this map), and get off at Dutton Park (5th stop from Central Station). Trains leave frequently. From Dutton Park you can either:
* Walk 535 m to the corner of Annerley Rd & Gladstone Rd and catch the 109 bus direct to the University of Queensland Lakes station, then walk 315 m through UQ.
* Walk 470 m to Stop 17, Gladstone Rd (approaching Annerley Rd) and catch the 192 bus direct to the University of Queensland, then walk 315 m through UQ.
* Walk about 1.2 km to UQ, first along Pound St, then turn right onto Annerley Road, then walk down to, and across the Eleanor Schonell Bridge.

West corridor
Take a train that runs on the Ipswich or Rosewood lines (the SW green line in this map), and get off at Toowong (4th stop from Central Station). Trains leave frequently. From Toowong you can either:
* Catch the 402, 411, 412, or N412 bus direct to the University of Queensland, or
* Walk to the Regatta Ferry Stop and catch the City Cat to UQ (see above), or
* Walk about 1.5 km to UQ, first along Gailey Rd, then turn left at Sir Fred Schonell Drive, the university is at the end of the Drive.

Up-to-date timetables and maps for all public transport can be found at TRANSLink.


From Brisbane Airport......

Train. There are frequent Airtrains between either airport terminal and downtown, the trip takes about 22 minutes. A one way ticket to the city (Central, Roma St, or South Bank stations) costs $13.50, or to the university (Toowong station, see Train section above) costs $15.90. See this interactive map.

Taxi. In the Domestic Terminal, taxi ranks are at both the Qantas and Virgin Blue ends of the terminal. In the International Terminal, the taxi rank is on Level 2 (Arrivals). All Brisbane taxis have standard taxi meters: the fare to the University of Queensland is $44-$50; the fare to the city centre is $33-$35—in either case there is an additional $3 fee for departing taxis only. (Up to date estimates can be made using either the Black and White Cabs or Yellow Cabs fare estimators.)
