SuperHayden asked me about methods of travel to and from the Ballina Gateway Airport and Byron Bay:
There are a few ways to get to and from the Ballina Airport.
Blanch's bus company are the main public transport Busses around the Byron Shire, and they run to and from the Airport:
Route 240 goes direct to the Airport.
Only thing with Blanch's is that your running on their timetable.
This site lists a few shuttle services:
But my personal favourite is the Byron EasyBus:
They can do a trip from the Ballina Gateway Airport to Byron Bay for around $15. This may be an option if you got a group of people going. May not be an option if it's only you and a friend, etc.
Taxi may not be an option, as the price could get a little out of hand.
I may actually be in ballina when you arrive. I'm doing a few runs to pick people up for schoolies. Dunno though.
Hope this helps.
