How to get to Redlands

Redland City is an unspoilt jewel for holidaymakers and visitors to Queensland’s south-east.  Less than an hour from Brisbane’s CBD, the Redlands is ideally located for people who want to be close to amenities yet escape for rest and relaxation. 

Redlands is under 30 minutes from the Brisbane Domestic and International Airports; Cleveland (the gateway to North Stradbroke Island) is only 35 minutes from the airports.

QR Trains run frequently from Brisbane Central Station to Cleveland (journey takes about an hour).

The Veolia bus service operates regular services between Brisbane Transit Centre and the Redlands.
