There are daily flights from Sydney to Hervey Bay with Virgin, and Qantaslink from Brisbane. Virgin fly in from Sydney in the morning. If you go via Qantaslink, fly SYD to BNE and then via QL to Hervey Bay

The airport is about 10 minutes from town, and there are shuttle buses or taxis

I would not fly into the Maroochydore Airport at the Sunshine Coast, too far away ( over 2 1/2 hours drive) when you can fly into Hervey Bay Fraser Coast Airport.

The other option and the most time consuming option is go by Greyhound Buses!

We have friends in HB so know the area very well.

Just checked prices for you. Virgin's cheapest fare SYD to HB is $99, but you won't get out on late Sunday afternoon, as the flight departs at 11.05 am.

You'll need to stay Sunday night and depart Monday.
