Is the 9:40pm flight your international flight back to the UK? If so, you'll have to be back at the airport at least two-three hours before that. And if you're arriving on a 3:15pm flight that's not going to leave you very much time at all.

I'd say the best you'll be able to manage is a train into the CBD or South Bank and a little bit of a wander around before having to catch the Airtrain back to the international terminal.

South Bank is where the museum and art galleries are as well as a large parkland along the river. http://www.visitsouthbank.com.au/

agree the train is the go - you need to catch it from one terminal to the other anyway if transferring to international

thanks for your replies. am still wondering whether to right off a flight and spend a night at mackay and get to brisbane early...8am. lots of hassle but not too much additional money. cant decide!
