The easiest and cheapest way to get to us from the airport is to take the public bus from outside the terminal- it leaves every 15-20 mins and will cost you $8 one way. fro the bus stop walk straight up Camp street (where the bus stops) towards the fire station- take a left and we are just opposite the medical centre!
look forward to seeing you soon
