Roma Street Station lockers?

We will be flying in to Brisbane from Auckland in early March, landing just after 7 am. From Brisbane, we plan to travel to the Gold Coast by train, but only in that late afternoon. So we would like to explore the city during the morning/afternoon. The Airtrain website mentions that lockers are available at the airport or Roma Street station (we wouldn't want to have to go back to the airport, but need to leave our bags somewhere while we explore, so I guess it would have to be Roma station). Does anyone have knowledge of how large the lockers at Roma Street station are, and what they cost? Are they big enough for suitcases/backpacks? What is close to Roma station, attraction-wise? We like the outdoors, and 'cafe-culture'...

It's about a ten minute walk to CBD and the mall for shopping restaurants.

You could walk or catch a train from Roma St to Southbank, it's just one stop for cafes , museum , art galleries etc

Walk around Southbank and then over the footbridge back to Roma St via the botanical gardens and CBD.

Hi. What's the answer on the lockers? When I go to the link posted, I read "For safety reasons for all patrons luggage lockers are not available at the Brisbane Transit Centre."

If lockers are not available here, are they available anywhere in central Brisbane?

Thanks for replies

The only storage near the city centre is at Southbank Parklands, Unless your hotel can hold your luggage before leaving for the airport.

that transit centre link isn't the actual train station

there will be lockers at the train station and there should be lockers at Central station which is the stop before Roma St if coming from the airport and also gives access to the City

There are no lockers at any city train stations ... the only lockers are at Soutbank or at the stations at the airport.

This stuff about lockers is strange. I have USED lockers there -- and have been planning a trip in a few weeks when I will use them again. I am sure I saw them when I passed through a few weeks ago. They are against the Roma Street wall as you walk out of the subway which connects to all the platforms.

You can fit a reasonable sized suitcase plus a pack or two big rucksacks in them, if I remember correctly.

Jeez -- I hope they are there when I pass through again or I am in all sorts of trouble! :)

Here to confirm the fact that no lockers are available at both Central and Roma St station. Was stuck with my luggage all day yesterday which was pretty disappointing.

The nearest was apparently treasury casino (not sure on details) or Stanley Plaza in south bank

Can confirm there are no lockers at either Roma or Central station, and I asked at the Casino but they also will not take in bags unless you are staying at their hotel. I asked at the Tourist Information centre, and the only suggestion they had was a hostel called Base near Central station which will offer a left luggage service - but not lockers; it's a locked room with everyone's bags in which every bag owner has a key for - so a bit of a security risk really. I decided to get on a tourist bus! A double decker touring the city, takes 90mins to do a full circuit and if you time it right, they stop opposite Roma Street station. Costs $35 and you can take your suitcase on so that solved the problem for me anyway, just having 4 hours to kill and wanting to see the city.
