Getting There If you are arriving by plane, book online with Airport Transfers Byron Bay. They will meet your plane in Coolangatta (Gold Coast) or Ballina and drop you right on the Planula doorstep.

If you are driving, this is the easiest way to get to Planula:

NOTE: Do not trust your GPS / SatNav etc in your car as on some maps there is no Melaleuca Drive and it will send you to a different Melaleuca Drive in Mullumbimby which is not where you need to go.

Follow the Pacific Highway to the Byron Bay turn-off (Ewingsdale Intersection).
Follow the sign that says: Byron Bay 6km
Follow this road until a large BP Petrol station appears on the left side of the road. Fifty meters further there is an unsealed road to the right – this is Melaleuca Drive.
After about 400 meters, twenty meters before the end of the road on the right side you will find the Planula carpark (there is a sign).
Once on the carpark the entrance to Plnaula is on the left side.
At night, Melaleuca Drive is quite dark (no street lights) – once on our carpark you should see the Planula Reception sign (which is lit at night) over the path leading to our front door.
Please do not continue to drive into our neighbour’s place, which is called ‘Temple Byron’.

If you come from the South, the route via Lennox Head is more scenic. If you have the time, drive along the ocean and enjoy the beautiful views. This road automatically brings you to the centre of Byron Bay from which it is only a short drive to Planula on Melaleuca Drive:

Drive through the town centre past Woolworths (part of the shopping plaza on your left).
At the next roundabout turn left and cross the railway.
Follow this road past the police station, past the hospital until you reach the 80 km/h zone.
Drive over Belongil Creek, past Belongil Fields Camping Ground.
The next left is Melaleuca Drive, an unsealed road. If you pass a large BP station on your right you have gone a bit too far.
After about 400 meters, twenty meters before the end of the road on the right side you will find a carpark (there is a sign).
Once on the carpark the entrance to Planula is on the left side.
At night, Melaleuca Drive is quite dark (no street lights) – once on our carpark you should see the Planula Reception sign (which is lit at night) over the path leading to our front door.
Please do not continue to drive into our neighbour’s place, which is called ‘Temple Byron’.
Parking Ample and safe off-street car parking on property.
Things To Do Byron Bay has always been known for the alternative lifestyle and friendly people and is the perfect holiday destination for people who want something more than beach alone. The many cafes and the relaxed atmosphere put you in a holiday mood right away. For people that need to be active to have a real break; don't worry there is more than enough to do! You can go scuba diving, hang gliding, sky diving and more or just get a massage, yoga or float tank session.
