Different Ways to Get to Byron Bay

Most people get to Byron Bay through one of these three airports: Ballina Byron Airport, Gold Coast Airport, and Brisbane International and Domestic Airport. 

If you’re entering via Ballina Byron Airport, it will only take 30 minutes of driving from the airport to Byron Bay.  Gold Coast Airport, on the other hand, is 45 minutes away from Byron Bay. Lastly, Brisbane International and Domestic Airport is located at the eastern side of Brisbane. It is the furthest of the three airports from Byron Bay, almost two hours away. 

You may also hire a car as your transport option to take you from Ballina airport to Byron Bay, or from other airports. There are cars for hire in the airport or you may also book them online in advance. However, unless you need a car for your whole trip, a transfer may be a more cost-efficient alternative

Another option you may consider is riding the shuttle bus. You may get to Byron Bay by riding a bus from the Brisbane Roma Street transit terminal near the Brisbane airport. You may also find buses near the Gold Coast Airport.

It’s the cheaper option but it also tends to take longer and you’ll have less space to get comfortable. Shuttle buses also run between terminals and will not get you directly to your place of accommodation.
