As far as I know you will not have any trouble, there is a taxi service 
available to take you anywhere you need to go from the airport, but you  
will need to book in advance, Geoff and Helen Pope Ph 070-607193

I would certainly recommend a visit there is a more than reasonable chance 
of Spotted Whistling Duck at the sewage farm, (do let me know if you see  
them) and its a great spot for many species that are hard to get elsewhere 
such as Fawn-breasted Bowerbird.
