My flight arrives at Brissie airport at 445, is anyone heading down from Brisbane that evening?

I'm really struggling to find public transport there!!!

Cheers,
Terry

Hopefully someone in Brisbane will give you a ride but failing that you could get the train from Brisbane airport to Varsity Lakes on the Gold Coast which gets you half way there.
The Airtrain runs every 15 minutes at that time of the day.
Have you tried calling the shuttle bus companies for their schedules or suggestions:

One year we caught to train to Robina then a bus to Coolangatta then a shuttle to Byron.

With the train now going to Varsity Lakes,it is 30 minutes by bus to Gold Coast Airport.
If you look at the Gold Coast Airport site,there are a massive number of options to get you to Byron from there.
It comes down to how much you want to pay.

You would catch the train at 5.34 pm or 5.38pm depending on whether you were at International or Domestic,and arrive at Varsity Lakes at 7.22pm.
30 minutes to Gold Coast Airport get you there at 8.02pm.
The choice from there is yours to make.

We cannot now fly into the Gold Coast Airport,but for my first 3 Bluesfests we could.
We found that there was a myriad of shuttles waiting for passengers.
At that was at about 6.30pm to 7.00pm.
We did not prebook,but just got in with some other randoms.

My personal preference would be the Byron Easy Bus shuttle,given that it has a Bluesfest Focus,and I suspect would be the most affordable option.

All of the keen five dayers will be listening to the opening Bluesfest Act at the time you fly in.
