Brisbane Airport Takes Flight with $50 Million Australia Post Facility

Brisbane Airport

Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) is revving up for the future with a $5-billion investment plan spread over the next decade. The cornerstone of this ambitious project is a $50-million, cutting-edge facility for Australia Post, their second-largest in Queensland.



This state-of-the-art complex, spanning an impressive 31,800 sqm — or the size of three rugby league fields — will streamline parcel delivery for millions of Queenslanders. Strategically located within the Brisbane Airport Industrial Park, the facility boasts direct airside access, expediting deliveries for time-sensitive packages.


 
 


Beyond Parcels: A Multi-faceted Transformation

The $50 million Australia Post facility is just one facet of the broader “Future BNE” programme – a 150-initiative development plan that will significantly enhance Brisbane Airport. Passengers can expect upgrades to both the Domestic and International Terminals, including the initial phase of Terminal 3’s construction.

Additionally, a $90 million car park expansion at the Domestic Airport will provide a much-needed 1,700 new parking spaces, tackling rising capacity issues.

Sustainability at the Forefront

Brisbane Airport Corporation is placing a strong emphasis on sustainability throughout this development. The Australia Post facility is targeting a prestigious 5-Star Green Star certification, prioritising energy and water efficiency, climate resilience, and minimal environmental impact during construction.

Over 1,000 solar panels will be installed to generate renewable energy, aligning with BAC’s goal of achieving net zero emissions by 2025.


Creating Opportunities and Boosting Efficiency

Construction of the Australia Post parcel facility is estimated to generate approximately 1,500 jobs. Once operational by mid-2025, the centre will boast advanced automation and security features, ensuring a safe and efficient work environment for its 200-strong workforce.

The facility’s strategic location within the Brisbane Airport Industrial Park provides convenient access to air, road, and sea freight, further streamlining logistics.

Brisbane Airport: A Gateway to the Future

The $5 billion investment plan signifies Brisbane Airport’s commitment to growth, sustainability, and world-class service.

This comprehensive programme aligns with the vision outlined in the Australian Government-approved Brisbane Airport 2020 Master Plan, which lays the groundwork for the airport’s development over the next two decades.
