Is there a better way for a FreakyFlier to spend a lazy Saturday afternoon in an airport? Yes, at the Qantas Club of course. On my recent trip to Brisbane with my friend Bert, we were heading back to Sydney on a flight at around 5:30 pm on a Saturday afternoon. After we checked out of our hotel and had a nice long lunch at Eagle Street Pier, we headed to Brisbane airport a little earlier than usual to check out the Qantas Club in the domestic terminal.
Located upstairs and past security, the first thing I was noticed about the lounge was the space, so much room! Of course this was a Saturday afternoon when not many people travel so I could imagine it would be a wee bit busier on say a Friday or Sunday evening, the peak travel periods.
Other than cooking your own toasted sandwiches, there was one hot dish, this time a fluffy rice pilaf.
A few salads items were on offer to either deign your own or pre made such as a crisp Asian inspired salad.
Add some cold cuts such as ham or rare roast beef to your salad or make that perfect toastie with a variety of cheese slices and pop it in the sandwich press provided.
My first plate was a bit of everything. The rice pilaf was was fluffy and full of he right amount of vegetable to give it some flavour albeit a little flavourless. The meats and other salad items were dang fresh!
Red and white wines were on offer, as well as a variety of beers from the fridge. For something a little more heavier, spirits were available from the barman.
There were a few pre-departure drinks, a Chardonnay, then a scotch and cola, then…..it was time to find the departure gate.
Whilst not having much of a vibe on a Saturday afternoon, the Qantas Club at Brisbane Domestic Terminal is nice space to while away the time before a flight. I enjoyed myself and will pop in there again next time I am in Brisbane.

It looks nice and quiet there. I find lounges can sometimes defeat the purpose when they’re teeming with people and you can’t get a seat 🙂
