The public bus route 301 operates Monday to Friday, each hour and Saturday every 2nd hour. The stop is about a 400m walk to the athletics facility. There is no public bus service on the Sunday so athletes competing that day will need to find alternate transport.
The 301 route travels to and from the Mackay CBD and along Nebo Road which is where the majority of accommodation options are located. There are many other bus routes that interconnect with the 301. Please check the service map link below.
