Six Hours in Brisbane?

Jump to last reply

Greetings! Our family of four (two adults, two boys ages 12 and 8) will be traveling to AU in August. We are starting to look more closely at our reservations and have realized that we have a rather long (8 hours total, but we'll need some time for customs, etc.) layover in Brisbane between our arrival from the US and our flight to Cairns. We'd like to get out of the airport, and I was thinking about a quick trip to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary.

1. Does this seem doable?
2. Does it make more sense to take a cab or rent a car?
3. From the little I've read, it appears that the international terminal may not be in the same location as our eventual flight to Cairns. Will it present a problem if we store our baggage at the airport, or do we just need to allow a little extra time to collect our things and make the transfer?
4. Is there some other destination that makes more sense, given our limited time?

Any recommendations or suggestions would be most welcome. Thank you!
