Accommodation near the Training Venue

The best choices would be something in Browns Plains as it is the closest and if necessary we could arrange pick up and drop off from and to the training venue to your Hotel / Motel in this area. Browns Plains is 15 minutes drive north of the seminar location. Central to Browns Plains is the Grand Plaza shopping Mall that has a wide variety of medium and low cost restaurants and fast food outlets in this area.

Brisbane airport is 46 km from the training venue and takes around 45 minutes to drive in ordinary traffic using toll roads. It is not really possible to make pickups at Brisbane Airport at this stage. However, there are several car rental companies and taxi services at the airport.

Estimated taxi cost from Brisbane Airport to Browns Plains is approximately $90.00. With planning, using public transport, train and bus from Brisbane Airport to Grand Plaza Browns Plains will cost in the order of $31.00 Go to the Translink website to use the Journey Planner for public transport from the Brisbane Airport to Grand Plaza Browns Plains. This planner works very well and is easy to use.

AirBnB

Many students of late have been using AirBnB with good results. Many students recommend an AirBnB Property in Greenbank.

If those ones are already booked, use Air BnB to search the area. Surrounding suburbs include Greenbank, Jimboomba, South Maclean, Park Ridge, Munruben, Hillcrest, Heritage Park, Regents Park, Boronia Heights, Browns Plains.

There is an Air BnB host right next door to us, less than a 5 minute walk to class. It is entirely up to the student to book the house directly via AirBnB. We do not organise this, nor do we provide direct contact details for the host. You must book via AirBnB.

Please note: We cannot always pick you up and drop off from an Air B&B location. It is best that you have your own transport in this instance.
