I recently travelled to Canberra for a science conference. This was the first time that I’d spent any significant amount of time at Canberra Airport and I was rather impressed with the design of the place.
Canberra Airport is light and spacious. Designed by Guida Moseley Brown Architects, the entire complex was rebuilt from 2009 and opened in 2013 at a cost of $480 million. It’s slick, roomy and serpentine in shape. The lounges are comfortable and the services are good.
In fact, I was able to walk around the beautiful terminal and take these photos before downloading them to my laptop and processing them all in the terminal. The airport provides a modest “workstation” space where users can plug in laptops and charge mobile phones and the free Qantas wi-fi meant that I was able to upload a couple of choice pictures to Flickr within 20 minutes of shooting them.
Here is my collection of photos depicting Canberra Airport in all its modern glory. Enjoy!
