Transport in and out of byron bay[edit]

Premier Coaches are the main bus company in & out of Byron Bay. They come a few times a day. Both to Brisbane & Sydney. The drive takes 12hrs from Sydney & is mainly done with an overnight drive. Other options are the local Kirklands buses which go a few times a day through the Gold Coast to Brisbane. McCaffertys Buslines also run frequent services to Byron Bay.Trains services now go with a bus link to Casino where there are a few trains per day which come from Brisbane & end at Sydney. Oz Experience buses also connect with Byron Bay.There are a few small coaches which offer a cheaper ride to Sydney, when they still have places available. You can enquire about them normally in backpacker hostels or the many internet places.But by far the most cost effective & comfortable way to get in & out of Byron Bay is to fly to Ballina airport which has bus/taxi links to Byron Bay once he plain has arrived. They have at least 5 flights a day from Sydney & start from $88

Lifted directly off

I understand your policy to only link to individual accom providers - you won't link to other websites that list a bunch of individual accommodation providers.

You also seem to realise that a list of links is useless without good general information - which is why I include good general information on my website.

So - if you want to take a shortcut and use my content, I feel it's only fair that the content gets credited with a link.

If you'd rather create your own content - then please do... I don't think you should have it both ways.

You are quite right, Wikitravel aims to create free content, and not just copy info from other websites. I have removed the content in question. And you are right in that a good site also needs general information, and not just listings. Thanks --Inas 00:41, 9 May 2009 (EDT)
