Brisbane Airport recently officially opened their $45 million International Terminal redevelopment. Already winning design awards, the redevelopment has taken 18 months of round the clock construction, while still operating for passengers. If you’re passing through the airport, look out for the distinctive features that reflect the ‘essence of Brisbane and Queensland’ envisaged by the designers. Look the clever use of local Tuff stone and locally sourced spotted gum timber, as well as the use of tropical plants and water features.
This is assuming, of course, that you aren’t distracted by the walk through duty-free stores in both Departure and Arrival areas, or, if you have children with you (big or small) the Children’s Gaming Centre has plenty of features to keep the kids entertained. Features include augmented reality and a range of 3D interactive games.
If you’re on your way out through the airport, get ready to try the new Digital Departure Card undergoing trials at Brisbane Airport.
