My boyf and I are flying up to Mackay on Sunday 1st May on Tiger airlines and land at 09:00. We need to get to Airlie Beach that day as early as poss and the only bus (Greyhound) that goes from Mackay to Airlie is 18:30 which is almost a 10 hour wait. Neither of us drive so we cant hire a car. I have looked at private taxi prices and they are excess of $360! Can anyone suggest another way? Are there any people who have been in the same boat and what did you do? Are there any people on that flight who might want to share a hire car?? (i'd even pay for it if someone will drive it!).
Any assistance would be appreciated.
If i cant work out some other way we'll have to hitch up, nightmare.
