England touch down in Australia ahead of Ashes
Joe Root and Ben Stokes land in Brisbane.
The squad, still to be joined by members of England's Twenty20 World Cup side, walked through the terminal and into a waiting bus bound for 14 days' quarantine on the Gold Coast.
The early arrival gives the team a month to acclimatise to the Australian summer before the first Test starts on December 8.
Also among the arrivals was opening batsman Rory Burns, fast-bowler Jimmy Anderson and England stalwart Stuart Broad.
"One thing I think we can take a lot of heart and confidence from is the way India went and played there in their (Australia's) last home series," Root told a conference call on Tuesday.
"They took them on in their own way, they played to their strengths, but they didn't take a backward step at any stage."
