Getting to Happy Daze Festival
Happy daze Festival is situated between 2 major airports Proserpine (whitsundays) airport and Mackay. Both airports are within an hour from the site. We currently run a shuttle bus service on the friday from airlie beach past proserpine airport and back to Airlie Beach on the Monday morning.
From Brisbane- Its sometimes cheaper to fly directly to Mackay from Brisbane where its then easy to hire a car or meet friends to go a short 50 minute drive to the festival however if you want to make a real holiday of it for a little bit more in flights you could travel to Proserpine and catch a short bus into Airlie beach and visit the reef or an island. From there you can either hire a car or catch the shuttle bus on the friday to the festival.
From Sydney - The best way to get to the festival from sydney is with Tiger airlines, flying to sydney Proserpine (whitsundays coast).
