If we can help in any way regarding your travel arrangements please do not hesitate to ask.
Ballina is our nearest airport - about 45 mins away. It is serviced by 1 Rex, 2 Virgin and 2 Jetstar flights daily. The Gold coast is about an hour away and has 8 -10 Virgin and 8 -10 Jetstar flights daily. We recommend Virgin as being the most reliable and having the best service.
Please factor into your travel plans that Daylight Savings will affect your timing from the Gold Coast to NSW at certain times of year.
Registration on the first day is between 4:30 and 6:00pm. Dinner is at 6:00pm
The Retreat ends 1:00pm on Sunday.
The venue address is: Songline, 4 Buckleys Road, Tyagarah, NSW
To get to and from the airport, we recommend these shuttle bus services for Gold Coast and Ballina:
Xcede and Byron Easy Bus meet all the Virgin and Jetstar flights at Gold Coast and Ballina Airports.
Cost is approx $35 and you may need to ask to be dropped off 'at the end of Grays Lane, Tyagarah' if they won't take you to our door at 4 Buckleys Road Tyagarah. We are happy to come and pick you up from there if you will just let us know on the day, and phone or text us when you are about 15 minutes away (ask the driver).
Gold Coast Shuttle will come right to our door from the Gold Coast airport for $75 per two persons, then $20 per additional person, so if you know of others travelling at the same time, perhaps you can get together and save ; )

For those coming by their own transport
Grays Lane runs from the Pacific Hwy down to the beach just north of Byron Bay.
When driving north you will need to slow down when you see the sign for a rest stop on the left.
There will be white sign for Grays Lane and a blue sign for Tyagarah Airstrip at this turn off.
Turn right into the central median and then cross the south bound lanes.
Continue into Grays lane, heading east, towards the beach.
After going up a hill and down the other side you will find Buckleys Road is on the right.
Songline is the first two gates on the right on Buckleys Rd.
Enter by the second gate to drive up the driveway, deposit luggage, register etc.
Entry by the first gate leads to the parking area at the bottom of the driveway in front of the Dormitory Shed.
Please give us a call if you need help to get your bags up the drive.
Looking forward to seeing you soon.
