We need to get from a condo in Parksville to Sydney at the end of May. We do not have a car. What options do I have to get there?

http://tofinobus.com/courtenay-campbell-river-port-hardy is one option. It will get you to Victoria then you can either take a taxi or use public transit. https://bctransit.com/victoria/schedules-and-maps

And I was thinking Sydney, Australia! :) (as a side note, people do book trips to Sydney, Nova Scotia thinking they are getting on a flight to Australia)

I'm going to *assume* you are trying to get to Sidney (with an I).

Island Link Bus

Regular public transit bus to Nanaimo, then a flight to Victoria airport, which is actually in Sidney, then a public transport bus to the town centre

All, thanks for your help. And yes, I meant Sidney with an "i". Given that I just got back from a 3-week trip to Australia and New Zealand, and just wrote up how much Sydney (Australia) has changed, I hope I can be forgiven for my typo. Thanks again, Ed.

Ed, you are not alone! It happens a lot. At least you didn't end up in Nova Scotia by mistake.

Welcome to the Trip Advisor forums too!

$64,000 question. How did young Milan get on the plane to NS without an eTA?

He may well have had an eTA and just thought the flight went to Australia via Toronto which is why it was so cheap :)
