We are permanently located at Ballarat Airport which is around an hours drive west of Melbourne CBD. The airport is located on the North West side of Ballarat with immediate access to the Main Highway between Melbourne and Adelaide. When coming from Melbourne the most direct route to the airport is to stay on the freeway for some 10km's or so after the first Ballarat turnoff. This exit goes directly to the erodromet. The PDF document has photos and shows this very clearly.
