With more than 23 million passengers travelling through Brisbane Airport’s International and Domestic Terminals every year, many weird, wonderful and valuable items are accidently left behind by travellers.
While all efforts are made to return items to their rightful owners, unfortunately, many possessions remain unclaimed. Of these items, some are donated to local charities, while valuables are offered for sale to the public.
In 2017 unclaimed items went under the hammer include clothing and jewellery, electronics and perfumes, with many items brand new with proceeds going to Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors. Last year's auction took place in November and December and over $15,000 was raised for The Courier-Mail Children's Fund.
