Canberra Airport is the most backward capital city airport in the world! Even after renovations it has one coffee shop and one crazy priced newsagent. Try not to get stuck here for more than 10 mins.
Seriously? The best tip here is to "experience" the hand dryers in the loos? C'mon Canberra!
Must visit: Australian War Memorial, its chock full of personal stories, displays, research facilities, a sculpture garden & function spaces. Its is one of the 'must- see' places in Canberra.
Remember to run for your bag on the carousel as if it were going into a place with fire and steel jaws, rather than it coming back out on the other side. It is the new "in thing".
Departure screens are to the left once you've been through security
QANTAS Clubs are just left of security exit.
Here you can really take off.
Catch the airport bus to avoid long cab queues!
Transport to the City? ACTION Buses route 10/737 service from Brindabella Park is a lot cheaper. Stop opp. QantasLink Hanger in Brindabella Park. MON-FRI, day time only.
Fly #Virgin out of Canberra - your treated with much more style and consideration!
Canberra airport, not quite the embarrassment it once was
Get out of, or get in to, a plane.
Caffeinate before leaving home.
The airport shuttle bus runs till 7pm, taxi is the only options after that.
Join the Hudson Coffee club - you get free coffees!
eat before you get there, not much in the airport, very quiet place.
Early morning flight, no fog? Well bring sunglasses because the sun will be IN YO FACE!
Brindabella Airlines passengers - Check In at the QANTAS service counter (or Club Lounges if applicable). If dropping bags see staff before security, with hand luggage the service desk next to gate 10
The perfect toilet experience for the germaphobe.
Make sure your deodorant and shaving cream have a lid, or you will lose them!
Go to the Hudsons Coffee end of the upstairs terminal (I.e. Opposite end of where gate 14's located) and u can use the free Qantas Club WiFi
Self service check-in available for all QANTAS flights. Speed things up with a Q Bag Tag to avoid using the kiosks so you can head straight to bag drop after checking in online or on your mobile.
If traveling Qantas on a Saturday evening, A Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth flight leave withing 15mins of each other. Get there early to avoid the queues at ckin and security for these flights!
Limestone Bistro and Bar now open. Located after security, food offerings are quite nice. Standard airport prices though, so expect a hefty charge!
new terminal has next to no food and facilities..stupid makeover is stupid
Don't hire car from Europcar, they take more than 20 mins to serve one customer!
Eat before you arrive! For new airport only having 2 small cafes after check in is a bit silly! Don't know about you but a soggy day old wrap from hudsons for dinner leaves a bit to be desired
Flying with Tiger? You need to check in online at least 4 hours before your flight or you get charged $25 extra.
They have literally run out of taxis here. No Uber either. Ugh!
The taxi "commissionaires" are out of control! Don't discuss work in a cab 🚕 you'll be forced to share! @canberraairport
Powerpoints available next to travellex and vending machines. (near gate 8)
Red Shuttle bus to civic is quicker than a taxi
A newly renovated airport with potential. It may be small in terms of coffee shops and stores but it's big in scenery around the area. Take a moment to enjoy the view
Crazy color changing fountains in the drop off area are the second best part of the airport.
Avoid hudsons coffee. You have been warned!
Chairs near hudsons are too darn squeaky!
This is a beautiful new airport - but how could they have forgotten for provide charging points for passengers?
Nice e new airport design!! Top
If you just got off the plane in Canberra, and are lucky to only be transitting, the Virgin Lounge is to the right.
this place is hot in summer.
To all the people complaining about power - there is heaps of it! Check in the floor near the pillars along the gate lounges!
Not one power point or charging station. That's strange for an airport, particularly a newer airport.
Canberra airport bus was good ($10 each way & chatty driver). Lovely airport; not fussed that there are only a couple of eating and coffee options, I go there to catch planes.
there is literally only one shop to buy things, so make sure if you're there for a long time you bring something to do.
Where's the lounge???? All this space and nothing inside!!!
Travelex have two locations. Landside in the arrivals hall, central section. Airside, turn left after security and the box is now in the wall. Opens early but is not open late.
Come as late as possible for your flight, cause there are no lines and reception is dodgy.
