    If you are at the airport you will need to get the skybus to the centre, approx $38 return and takes about 45mins each way. The hop on bus starts at the skytower.

    it is approximtaely 1 hour to do the whole central circuit sitting on the bus. Depending on how long you may want to stay at each stop. Buses ran every 15 minutes or so. Hope that helps you Mchael
