The perfect way to start your Byron Bay holiday
The Northern Rivers Region of NSW is one of the most iconic tourist destinations in Australia. With pristine beaches, rainforests, waterfalls and national parks combined with a vibrant culture of markets, festivals, events and world class restaurants, there truly is something for everyone in Byron Bay and its surrounding areas.
Flying in to Ballina Airport is the perfect way to start your Byron Bay holiday. The small regional airport is the gateway to the beautiful North Coast, centrally positioned just 35km from Byron Bay, 3km from the vibrant coastal town of Ballina and 100km from the gorgeous beachside retreat of Yamba.
You can relax from the moment your plane touches down. Getting in and out of the airport is a breeze, largely free of the hustle and bustle found within the major airports, and you will enjoy a smooth passage to the airport with very little traffic on the roads. Public transport services are very limited on the North Coast though, so the only thing that you will need to take care of is transport... that's where we come in.
