This year we have a bus leaving the Domestic Terminal at 10am on Friday 21 October to bring interstate members to the Mercure at Penrith. Return to the Airport is organised for leaving Penrith 3.30pm on Sunday 23 October. It is only a 50-seat bus and there is only one trip. If you wish to secure a seat on this bus, plan your travel times and let the National Secretary know ASAP to reserve your place.
Other options include getting a maxi-taxi and splitting the costs between your club members, or taking public transport (plan your times accordingly!).
