Brisbane Public Transport


Some useful links for public transport options in Brisbane:

TRANSLink – covers buses, trains and ferries. Has journey planners, timetables and maps

Airtrain – from the Brisbane airport to the city, stops at South Brisbane (closest to conferene venue) and South Bank, and then on to Gold Coast

    What’s on in Brisbane? (besides ALIA Access…)


    If you’re arriving early or staying later in Brisbane, here’s a quick checklist of online events guides for Brisbane, and for specific places around the conference venue:

    The best dining in Brisbane


    Got an opinion? Got any tips? Brisbane is about to host hundreds of interstate and overseas visitors to ALIA  Access 2010 and we want to showcase the best of Brisbane. Restaurants for the conference dinners are set but what about the other nights? We have so many great dining options, but they can be hard for visitors to find.

    On the eve of ALIA Access, you have a wonderful opportunity to meet some people who already use Twitter, and who will be full of ideas and enthusiasm to get you going with twittering at the conference.

    All the detail of the ‘tweetup’, can be found on the Libraries Interact blog.
