Leaving from all major Australian cities, your flight will arrive in Las Vegas, just a 9 minute drive from your resort, WorldMark Las Vegas - Boulevard, located at 8601 S Las Vegas Blvd. Your resort is located about 6.5 kilometres south from the Mandalay Bay and features a regular shuttle service to the heart of the Strip.
