Upstairs the Qantas First Class lounge stretches along the terminal with wide sweeping views across the tarmac and on to Sydney in the distance. We visited the lounge early in the morning and not on the clearest of days, but were still able to appreciate the view from this lounge which must be one of the best in the airport.

The menu also has a range of wine and beer to enjoy with your meal including French Champagne.

We enjoyed the Sweet corn fritters, fresh juice and coffee which was an excellent start to the day. Sitting in the dining room of the Qantas lounge really is dining with a view.
