It's about 2-3 hours drive (depends how fast you go, though. Last time I drove it, it took 4 hours but that was leaving Sydney in the middle of peak hour. :D) I had a look at the Countrylink website and it's about 3 hours on the train from Central. The "Best Available Economy" seat was $40ish, one way.

I had a friend who lived there and she reckoned the flights in and out were "kind of expensive", for what it's worth.

Yep, a 3 hour drive. For what it's worth, it's a really easy drive as it's a newish freeway all the way.

Flying would not be worth the time nor the hassle. Train might be okay.
