Vehicles are permitted to stop on the public road adjacent to the terminal to load and unload passengers and baggage. Due to Government security requirements, you must not leave your car unattended at any time. Unattended vehicles will be towed and set down time limits are enforced. If you are asked to move your vehicle by a traffic officer, please do so.

Domestic Terminal

Passengers and persons intending to greet or farewell passengers are allowed access into the sterile area (the area within the terminal beyond the security screening point), but only after submitting to the security screening process. Access to airside areas of the airport is prohibited, unless being escorted to or from an aircraft (as a passenger).

International Terminal

Passengers must submit to security screening, LAGs (Liquids Aerosol or Gels) inspection/screening and border processing before being allowed entry into these areas of the airport. Non-passengers are not permitted to enter the Customs-controlled areas of Australian international terminals.


In the event of an evacuation from terminal buildings and/or car parks you will be notified by the sounding of an alarm and verbal instructions to evacuate. The evacuation system will cascade, meaning that only those areas directly threatened will be evacuated first.

Those areas at lesser risk will be evacuated as the priority increases. When notified to evacuate make your way to the nearest exit and follow the direction of building wardens and uniformed staff.

You will be directed to evacuation areas where you can remain until it is safe to re-enter the building.

Once the terminal has been declared safe, airport security staff and airline staff will have first priority to re-enter the buildings followed by other airport staff and passengers. This will ensure thatsystems are re-activated to process passengers. You should take all your luggage and possessions with you when evacuating the building, unless otherwise directed by wardens.
