Here are your Airport Transfer Options:

There are a range of companies offering airport transfers in Australia. The largest airport transfer company is Con-x-ion and Coachtrans. From 2012 Coachtrans was bought out by Conxions. Today, they provide Gold Coast airport transfers, Sunshine Coast airport transfers, sydney airport transfers and Melbourne Airport transfers. They are looking to expand their airport transfer services into Cairns and Port Hedlands in Western Australia.
Option Three- Catching public transfort
Catching the airport bus or airport train is fine, but we find it less conventient. You have to physically purchase the tickets, get yourself to the bus station or train station, leave your vehicle in a public carpark or inconveniently beg someone to drive you, carry and drag your luggage at the station, take the risk of bad weather, take the risk of getting mugged, travelling with a lot strangers, and risk yourself of catching viruses from public transport (such as airborne disceases). The benefit of catching public transport is the possibility of saving a few dollars...maybe! We find catching public transport is less convenient and risky than having a airport transfer company arrive at your front door and picking you up from your home. Ask yourself, would not prefer to wait at the comfort of your own home and pay a few dollars extra?
Other Options - Park your vehicle in at the Airport or at private Airport car park locations like Andrews Airport Parking or Budget Airport Parking. This is not a bad option. But also comes with pros and cons. The only issue we have with parking at the airport or at airport car parking locations is that you risk your vehicle being scratched or damaged. We have heard many stories or vehicles being scratched and owners have not been able to make the claim as they could not prove the damage was caused by the airport carpark company.
