After receiving some safety tips and a route overview, you'll roll out on your first ride, exploring the heart of Byron Bay's hinterland. Known for its rolling lush hills, Macadamia nut farms, rainforests, and occasional waterfalls, all connected by scenic backroads, this area is a cycling paradise.

Type 4 Riders will enjoy the extra mileage the avid route options offer.

Taxis are available 24/7 from sheltered ranks right outside the Domestic and International Terminals. The journey to Gold Coast Airport typically takes approximately one hour and is estimated to cost around 200 AUD. The airport is also served by all major car rental agencies.

You can hire an Uber from Level 2, take the lift or escalator down to Level 1, follow the Rideshare Booking signs towards the open-air car park on the left as you exit the Terminal building. You can use Uber’s fare estimator or your Rideshare app to work out the cost of your trip.

Brisbane Airtrain also connects into the Queensland Rail suburban network. Book your ticket on the Airtrain website (www.airtrain.com.au/booking-form/) and get your return journey free.

Your Trek Travel guides will meet you at the Gold Coast Airport information desk at 11:00 AM on the first day of the trip.
