    There is the bus to Picnic Bay that psses the entrance 18 times a day, it would cost about 50cents and take 3 minutes to get to Nelly Bay beach. There is push bike hire at the north end of the street, it would take 4 minutes on a bike to Nelly Bay beach. There is scooter hire at the south end of the street, a car licence is required, it costs $30 for a day hire, it would take 2 minutes to get to Nelly Bay beach.
