Lounge Review: Stunning New Qantas Lounge – Brisbane International Airport

I was really looking forward to being able to spend some time in this brand spanking new lounge but I only had 10-minutes because they were closing as passengers were preparing to board the last Oneworld flight out of BNE that night – Cathay Pacific to Hong Kong.

The lounge was very impressive, and it was such an improvement from the dreary old international lounge. Similar to the new Qantas lounges in LAX, Singapore and Hong Kong, this lounge had a very modern yet simplistic feel to it, all dressed up in very neutral and wood tones.

The main bar area as you enter the lounge.

Like most other new Qantas lounges, the communal main dining table with stools, overlooking the tarmac.

The self-service “Quench” bar with Rockpool creations.

This lounge has several “hidden” corners where one can work or relax.

 The showers were very inviting too!

Finally, I managed to sneak upstairs (it was already closed!) and check out the breakfast hatch!

Then it was time to leave the lounge and start the very long trek to the very end of the terminal where the Emirates Lounge is located. That story on another day… .
